Xsens / Movella MTi-3-DK Development Kit

Xsens / Movella MTi-3-DK Development Kit enables users to evaluate the MTi-3 (AHRS), MTi-2 (VRU), and MTi-1 (IMU) modules. This development kit includes a USB interface and the MTi 1-s interface. Xsens / Movella MTi-3-DK Development Kit includes a shield board, the MTi-3 module (in the socket), and a USB cable. The MT software suite supports this development kit. It consists of an attitude and heading reference system (AHRS), which uses sensor fusion to deliver data on roll, pitch, and yaw, also known as heading, and all data from the IMU.
