Inertial Compass

Navigation device

Category:
tool
Description:

A small Inertial Compass module which uses a series of gyros and accelerometers to follow a course. Unlike GPS, the Inertial Compass requires no external signals or magnetic fields to operate. This allows it to act as a navigational aid under almost any conditions. It requires periodic re-calibration, especially whenever it is taken from one planetary surface to another.

It can log paths traveled, and if provided with map information can display a course and the current position relative to the desired course. It also logs motion data and can be used to recall a previously traveled course.
