Meet the Fingertip-Sized, High-Precision Digital Sensors that Enable Safe Operation of Drones and Railroads

Inertial sensors are not only used to detect movement in smartphones and game controllers—they also support the safe operation of large transportation systems like airplanes, trains and ships. Because they are used to accurately detect the movement, rotation and tilt of objects, they play an indispensable role in technologies that are sure to greatly change our lives in the future, such as autonomous vehicles and trains, cargo drones, and air taxis. This is why high-precision inertial sensors are under the spotlight.
