Honeywell TARS Series Inertial Measurement Unit

TARS Series Inertial Measurement Unit, 9 V to 36 V, CAN protocol, AMPSEAL 16 termination, standard MEMS chip generation/performance.

The Transportation Attitude Reference Sensor or TARS-IMU is a packaged sensor array designed to report vehicle angular rate, acceleration, and inclination for demanding applications in industries such as heavy duty, off-highway transportation. TARS-IMU enables autonomous vehicle characteristics and enhances efficiency and productivity by reporting key data required to automate and monitor movements of vehicle systems and components. The sensor fusion algorithm can be customized for specific vehicle applications through on-board firmware, allowing movement data to be filtered for extraneous environment and vehicle movements.
