Bosch Sensortec has launched the MEMS sensor BMI088, a high-performance Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) with outstanding vibration robustness, specifically designed for drone and robotics applications.
BMI088 features an extremely stable gyroscope derived from Bosch’s proven automotive technology. The IMU delivers low noise and low drift despite
fluctuating temperatures. “Challenging applications, such as drones and robotics, demand extremely stable and high-performance IMUs,” says Dr Stefan Finkbeiner, CEO of Bosch Sensortec. “Today, the BMI088 joins Bosch Sensortec’s extensive portfolio of MEMS sensors ideally suited for applications in high-vibration environments.”
The performance, vibration robustness and temperature stability of the BMI088 greatly enhance the drone flying experience by making accurate steering easier even in naturally high-vibration environments. This new IMU is compatible for use with other Bosch sensors, including the BMP38x barometric pressure sensor series for altitude measurement and the BMM150 geomagnetic sensor for heading. Customers benefit from a comprehensive sensor offering that is a perfect match to drone applications – a complete solution from Bosch.
