    navX2-MXP Robotics Navigation Sensor

    #navX-MXP
    $96.00

    BRAND NEW NEXT-GENERATION SENSOR NOW AVAILABLE -  leveraging new sensors and state-of-the-art algorithms to deliver a leap forward in accuracy and performance.

    “Generation 2” navX2-MXP is a drop-in replacement for “Classic” navX-MXP, adding significant performance enhancements. See the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more information about navX2-MXP's new and enhanced capabilities.

    *** Feature and Benefits Summary ***

    • 9-Axis Inertial/Magnetic Sensor (Gyro / Accelerometer / Magnetometer)
    • Intelligent Motion Processor
    • RoboRIO Expansion I/O


    Supercharge your robot:  Field-oriented drive, auto-balancing, collision detection, motion detection, auto-rotate-to-angle, linear velocity vectors and more…

    Expand your RoboRIO:  10 Digital I/Os, 4 Analog Inputs, 2 Analog Outputs, and TTL UART / I2C / SPI ports.

    Plug-n-Play:  easily installed via RoboRIO’s MXP Expansion connector or USB port.

    Easy-to-integrate:  C++, Java and LabView libraries and sample application code simplify integration.

    Backwards-compatible:  existing navX-MXP users can upgrade easily.

    navX2-MXP is a must-have add on to any RoboRIO-based control system, and includes free software libraries, example code and many more features.

    navX2-MXP was designed to use the RoboRIO MXP Expansion Connector - enabling plug-n-play installation on the National Instruments RoboRIO, and adding digital, analog I/O and UART / SPI / I2C port expansion.  navX2-MXP will be compatible with the forthcoming RoboRIO 2.0; for more details, see the Next Generation Control System Update on the FRC Blog.

    *** What's New and Improved in navX2-MXP *****

    • Significantly improved yaw accuracy and stability, even during Extreme inertial events.  navX2-MXP features very high-accuracy orientation (yaw/pitch/roll), with minimal yaw drift of ~0.5 degree per minute when moving, and < 0.2 degrees/hour when still.  navX2-MXP is incredibly stable, and averages a yaw drift of only 2 degrees per DAY.  navX2-MXP's new Industrial-class ISM330DHCX IMU sensor handles high rotation (4000 degree/second) and impact (16G, operates in higher temperature environments and can survive extreme shock events (20,000G).
    • Rapid (5-second) auto-calibrating startup.
    • navX2-MXP features an upgraded 180Mhz 32-bit floating-point ARM processor, the new sensors, and new state-of-the-art software algorithms which take navX technology to the next level, including a blazing-fast 416-Khz Kalman Filter, enhanced sensor calibration and algorithms which fuse gyro, accelerometer and magnetometer data into a “9-axis heading”.
    • As a result of these upgrades, the accuracy of Velocity Vector Measurements and Displacement Estimates is also improved.

     

    navX-Micro Robotics Navigation Sensor for FTC & FRC

    #KAUAI-NAVX-GP

    The navX-Micro Robotics Navigation Sensor for FTC Robotics designed for use with the Android-Based FIRST Technology Challenge (FTC) Robotics Control System.  navX-Micro is based on the same core technology within the navX-MXP sensor now in use by hundreds of FIRST Robotics Challenge (FRC) teams.

    Super-charge your robot:

    • Field-Oriented Drive
    • Auto-balance
    • Auto-rotate to angle
    • Motion Detection
    • Collision Detection

    navX-Micro features a 32-bit ARM processor, the Invensense MPU-9250 sensor system-on-chip, and software algorithms which include enhanced sensor calibration, data fusion combining gyro, accelerometer and magnetometer data into a “9-axis heading”, and high-quality magnetometer calibration including magnetic disturbance detection. In addition to being an Inertial Measurement Unit, navX-Micro capabilities are referred to within the aerospace industry as an “Attitude/Heading Reference System” (AHRS). Kauailabs brings this high-tech AHRS capability to FIRST FTC teams – to use, learn and explore. navX-Micro is a key component of Kauai Labs’ ongoing efforts to make state-of-the-art navigation technologies used in drones and autonomous vehicles (e.g., the Google Car) available to robotics students and enthusiasts as low-cost, open-source products.

    The navX-Micro FTC library is also compatible with the currentlyavailable navX-MXP sensor for those teams wishing to get started immediately.

    Open Source schematics, firmware source code, FTC library source code and example code is available online.  For those desiring an enclosure, a 3D-printable enclosure is also available for those wishing to create their own, or can be purchased separately online.
