The OpenIMU open-source GPS/GNSS-aided inertial navigation software stack was designed for low-cost precise navigation applications, enabling advanced, easy-to-deploy localization and navigation algorithm solutions for drones, robotics, and autonomous applications, at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods. The freely downloadable software stack includes a FreeRTOS-based data collection and sampling engine, a performance-tuned, real-time, navigation-grade GPS/INS Kalman Filter library, a free IDE/compiler tool chain based on Visual Studio Code, JTAG debugging for debugging the code loaded on the IMU, data logging, graphing, Allen Variance plots, and maps, extensive documentation and a robust simulation environment with advanced sensor error models. Several ready to install free GPS/INS and IMU applications are available on Aceinna’s Navigation app store too. The OpenIMU Development hardware development kit includes JTAG-pod, precision mount fixture, EVB, and an OpenIMU300 module. The OpenIMU module features Aceinna’s 5 deg/Hr, 9-Axis gyro, accelerometer, and magnetometer sensor suite with an onboard 180MHz ARM Cortex floating-point CPU. The IMU is delivered in a 24x37x9.5mm, easy to integrate module that operates from 2.7 to 5.5VDC.

And last month’s winners are…
In our previous reader offer, Xsens was giving away three kits to choose between its MTi-3 and its MTi-7 development kits, worth 399 and 449 Euros each, respectively for eeNews Europe's readers to win.
Lucky winners include Mr J. Stojs from Slovenia, Mr A. Moerel and F. Brussel from the Netherlands should be receiving their packages soon. Let's wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
