The Role of MEMS Accelerometers in Inertial Navigation

The basic working principle of inertial navigation is based on Newton’s laws of mechanics. By measuring the acceleration of the carrier in the inertial reference frame, integrating it with time, and transforming it into the navigation coordinate system, information such as speed, yaw Angle and position can be obtained in the navigation coordinate system. The gyroscope in the inertial navigation system is used to form a navigation coordinate system, the measurement axis of the accelerometer is stabilized in the coordinate system, and the heading and attitude Angle are given. The accelerometer is used to measure the acceleration of a moving body, and the velocity is obtained by integrating the time once, and the velocity is obtained by integrating the time once.

1. Because it is an autonomous system that does not depend on any external information and does not radiate energy to the outside. Therefore, it has good concealment and is not affected by external electromagnetic interference.
2. It can work all-weather and full-time in the air, on the surface of the earth and even underwater
3. It can provide position, speed, heading and attitude angle data, and the generated navigation information has good continuity and low noise
4. High data update rate, good short-term accuracy and stability.

1. Due to the integration of navigation information, the positioning error increases with time, and the long-term accuracy is poor
2. Long initial alignment time is required before each use
3. The price of the equipment is more expensive
4. Time information cannot be given

The is mainly for the acceleration generated when the carrier moves in a straight line, which is calculated by integral and input into the calculation software to obtain the required parameters, so the mems accelerometer is essential here. The MSME gyroscope is the accurate angle provided by the carrier mainly in the case of rotation. It can wait until the correct angle direction through the integral solution to ensure that the carrier will not deviate from the destination.

Therefore, the role of the mems accelerometer is to ensure the acceleration and the distance calculated by the integral solution when the carrier moves in a straight line.
