VectorNav Launches Improved Firmware for VN-200 GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation System at Sensor Expo 2013

VectorNav Technologies will be exhibiting at the Sensor Expo 2013 Conference at Booth # 317, June 4-6, in Rosemont, Illinois and will be introducing an improved firmware version for its VN-200 GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation System (GPS/INS).

Nominated for the Innovation Award at this year's Sensor Expo, VectorNav's VN-200 is the world's first GPS/INS available in a surface mount package. The VN-200 incorporates a suite of individually calibrated, MEMS-based 3-axis accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers, along with a barometric pressure sensor and a high-sensitivity GPS module, providing users with a coupled position, velocity and attitude solution at rates of up to 200 Hz.

Among the new features of the VN-200 GPS/INS to be introduced include the following:

  • AHRS aiding and improved attitude performance during GPS outages and static conditions.
  • Addition of the World Magnetic Model and Gravity Model into the INS algorithm.
  • Binary protocol output.
  • Higher INS output rates (up to 400 Hz).
  • Higher IMU subsystem output rates (up to 1 kHz).
  • Low latency (< 2 ms) for real-time applications.
  • Delta Angles and Delta Velocities (Coning & Sculling).
  • Improved robustness to multi-path issues.
  • Improved GPS receiver sensitivity.
  • Support for external GPS input.

VectorNav will also be exhibiting the VN-100 at the conference – its proven industrial grade MEMS-based Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS), as well as its sensor fusion algorithm, the Vector Processing Engine™.

VectorNav's VN-100 and VN-200 can be used in a wide variety of industrial and military applications and are well suited for size, weight, power and cost (SWAP-C) constrained applications such as UAVs and other unmanned vehicle systems, camera/platform stabilization, guided munitions, heavy machinery monitoring, augmented and virtual reality, robotics, primary/secondary flight navigation, and flight simulation, among others.
