What is Hillcrest Labs’ new FSM300 Module?
The FSM300 is a self-contained AHRS/IMU module that delivers industrial grade performance at a price point that makes it ideal for consumer robots and lower cost commercial robots. The small form factor module – about the size of a US Quarter – includes a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis magnetometer, and a low-power 32-bit ARM Cortex M0+ MCU. Hillcrest Labs’ proprietary MotionEngine™ provides a host of valuable features for robotics engineers including high accuracy 9-Axis and 6-Axis sensor fusion, calibrated sensor outputs, configurable sample rates, and intelligent power management to name a few. Our MotionEngine software is the special sauce that differentiates the FSM300 from the low cost consumer IMUs and the much higher cost industrial grade devices.
