The Arduino-compatible IMU is a project by Chris Anderson and Jordi Muñoz to create an AHRS (attitude heading reference system) for UAV control and general motion capture. This is the daughter board for the ArduPilot 6DOF. By itself, this board works as a very small single axis gyro breakout board. This board can be connected to an ArduPilot 6DOF main board to add an axis of angular velocity data.
The ArduPilot 6DOF daughter board comes equipped with a LISY300AL, a single axis, ±300°/s range gyro. All filtering components are also included. This board is designed to connect to the ArduPilot 6DOF main board at a 90 degree angle. Our breakaway right angle headers work great for this!
