ACEINNA's MTLT305D Dynamic Inclination and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) has been selected as the IMU solution for Komatsu Smart Construction Retrofit kit.

ACEINNA announced its MTLT305D Dynamic Inclination and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) has been selected as the IMU solution for Komatsu Smart Construction Retrofit kit available in Japan through LANDLOG Ltd. 

ACEINNA’s MTLT305D IMU measures 3 dimensions of linear acceleration and 3 dimensions of rotational rate, and fuses the data using an Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) to calculate pitch and roll under static and dynamic conditions. Each MTLT305D is calibrated on precision rate tables and in temperature chambers. According to the company, it is qualified for use on 12V and 24V vehicle systems.

The Smart Construction Retrofit kit uses four ACEINNA devices to monitor the excavator boom, stick, bucket and chassis position and motion. Data provided by the ACEINNA IMUs are essential inputs into the 3D machine guidance system.

Komatsu's Smart Construction Retrofit kit will enable conventional construction equipment to use Information and Communication Technology (ICT) functions such as 3D machine guidance and payload measurement, comparable with ICT-intensive equipment.
