  • Uniform software/hardware interface over product lifetime
  • Miniature and lightweight SMD form factor with low power consumption
  • Industry-leading signal processing pipeline and orientation algorithm

Overview

The MTi 1-series module is a full-featured GNSS/INS with GNSS receiver support, 3D Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS), Vertical Reference Unit (VRU) and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). The PCB features the proven XKF3TM sensor fusion algorithm on-board and will incorporate the latest inertial MEMS technology while keeping the software and hardware interface the same. This makes it ideal for users who want to benefit from the advances in MEMS technology, but cannot or do not want to invest in costly development, if a component is no longer available.

With its miniature SMD form factor (12.1×12.1mm) and low power consumption it is ideal for low level integration in upcoming technologies including drones, UAV’s, smart farming, unmanned control, Internet of (Moving) Things and robotics.

GNSS Receivers

The MTi-7 GNSS/INS module is a miniature motion tracking module with multiple GNSS receiver support. The receiver support platform is built modular to support the existing GNSS infrastructure from your application. Please let us know about your application and find out how the GNSS receiver of your choice can be integrated with the MTi-7 GNSS/INS.

The MTi-7 GNSS Receiver platform is structured to support multiple receivers, receivers that are not yet supported can be added if you supply us with your application information

MT Software Suite

The MT Software Suite gives easy access to Xsens’ products. The suite contains a specially developed and easy-to-use graphical user interface, as well as drivers for various operating systems and many other useful tools, example source code and documentation.

Although it is easy to set up the MTi via the low-level XBus protocol, communication is made easy with the Xsens Device API (XDA) which is completely in C-code.

MT Software Suite Includes:

  • MT Manager
  • MT SDK with the following software development tools
    – XsensDeviceApi.dll (XDA) – DLL C interface
    – XDA source files – C, C++ wrapper
    – Example source code for MATLAB, Python, C++, C#, ROS and Nucleo boards
  • Magnetic Field Mapper executable (GUI) and MFM SDK
  • Complete documentation
