Inertial Aerosystems offers dead-reckoning module with motion classification algorithms
Inertial Aerosystemscontact supplier
ETLG (Inertial Aerosystems) has enhanced its Magnetics range by upgrading to Honeywell’s latest dead-reckoning module, the DRM4000L, which is claimed to improve upon the previous model’s performance, reliability and power consumption.
According to ETLG, personnel on foot can use the Honeywell DRM4000L as a source of continuous, gap-free, position and location information, with or without an external GPS, which finds position relative to an initialisation point.
With a power consumption of 250mW, the Honeywell DRM4000L uses 100mW less than its predecessor.
The introduction of three digital rate gyros in a single package, to replace the previous three single analogue rate gyros design and improved manufacturing processes, mean that a single PCB board can be used instead of the previous three-board design, leading to a reduction in both size and weight.
- Horizontal accuracy: two per cent distance travelled
- Barometric altimeter provides vertical positioning accurate to 1.5m
- Uses patented motion classification algorithms (Smartpedometry) to distinguish between walking, running, side stepping and walking backwards
- Where GPS data is available, the dead reckoning sensors are automatically calibrated continuously
- Optional development kit includes enclosure complete with GPS receiver, antenna, interfaces and development software

The DRM4000 dead-reckoning unit from Inertial Aerosystems is a miniature electronic device for personnel on foot that provides the user’s position relative to an initialisation point.
Now available from ETLG Inertial, Systron Donner Inertial’s (SDI’s) SDD3000 range of digital quartz MEMS are single-axis rate sensors designed for demanding military and commercial applications.
Inertial Aerosystems has introduced a high-resolution, floor-mounted biaxial tiltmeter manufactured by Applied Geomechanics that is designed for use in the remote monitoring of minute movements in dams, large antennas and earthquake or volcanic zones.
Inertial Aerosystems has introduced a range of triaxial analogue accelerometers for applications where space and weight are at a premium, including machine control, robotics and crash testing.
