Product Features

This spatial board has a 3-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and compass with high resolution measurements at low magnitudes.
Product Description

The PhidgetSpatial Precision 3/3/3 combines the functionality of a 3-axis compass, a 3-axis gyroscope, and a 3-axis accelerometer all in one convenient package. It has enhanced precision in the accelerometer when measuring less than ±2g, and enhanced gyroscope precision at speeds less than 100°/s. The transition from high precision to low precision mode and back is completely seamless and automatic.

If precision is not an important factor for your application, consider the 1042 - PhidgetSpatial 3/3/3 instead.

The 1044 could be used to:

  • Provide spatial data for a remote control vehicle
  • Capture motion input data for research purposes
  • Gather motion statistics for moving objects
