Abstract

This paper discusses our ongoing research into assessing the accuracy of inertial measuring units (IMU). We used three different IMU’s varying in price and performance. The utilization of the different models was explored over the recent August 21st, 2017 full solar eclipse high-altitude ballooning live stream project. The IMU’s were used on the ground tracking station for orientation. Understanding the precision and accuracy of different units was paramount to the ground station’s functionality. The results of our findings are presented in this paper; distinct configurations, including being near metallic materials and how that affected the inertial measuring unit’s performance are discussed.
