STUDY OF ARRAY OF MEMS INERTIAL MEASUREMENT UNITS UNDER QUASI-STATIONARY AND DYNAMIC CONDITIONS
A measurement system includes all components in a chain of hardware and software that leads from a measured variable to processed data. In that context, the type and quality of the sensors or measuring devices are critical to any measurement system. MEMS/IMU sensors lag behind leading technologies in this respect, but the MEMS/IMU performance rapidly changes while is relatively inexpensive. For this reason, the paper proposes some investigations of currently available MEMS/IMUs, but in an array configuration. The article presents the results of research undertaken on this type of IMU sensor configuration under quasi-stationary and dynamic conditions and answers the question of whether the precision of current MEMS technologies for acceleration and angular velocity sensors is still improved using this kind of approach.
