SparkFun is updating the 6DOF v4. Over the last couple years we have added several IMU boards to our stock, but it's become apparent that we need a 'high end' device (at least we think we do...). There have been many threads on the forum about IMU's and people preferences and problems with existing hardware. So we'd like to get your feedback before we start designing our newest addition to the IMU family.
So, if you were going to design your ultimate IMU what would it have? We think the board should have a 3 axis accel, 3 axis gyro and 3 axis magneto; but which ones? What kind of ranges and accuracies would you like to see on all of the sensors? Any specific sensors youd prefer? Analog or digital? What kind of wireless interface works best for you - bluetooth, XBee, something else? The board is likely to have an ARM32, probably the LPC2138 running at 60MHz; but that too is open to suggestion. And with that, what do you expect the default firmware to do out of the box? Do you enjoy writing your own filters, or do you expect a robust platform that comes with the device? Now's your chance to give us some feedback, and we're looking forward to hearing from you!
