Inertial Sensors Facilitate Autonomous Operation in Mobile Robots

Ground-based robot systems must often handle dull, dirty, and dangerous tasks in missions where direct human involvement is expensive, dangerous, or ineffective. Some robotic platforms can operate autonomously, using navigation systems to monitor and control their motion. Accuracy is key for useful autonomous operation. MEMS gyroscopes provide a mechanism for optimizing navigation performance.
