Inertial Measurment Unit
For an efficient control of the airplane, it is necessary to know the attitude of the airplane, i.e the angle of roll, pitch and yaw. An Inertial Measurement Unit is a module containing accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope. It operates a sensor fusion to give the attitude, attitude rate,... The communication with the processor will be achieved with serial port (RS232).
