    navX2 MXP Robotics Navigation Sensor

    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-2 Micro, 9-axis Inertial/Magnetic Sensor

    #71039
    $99.00
    (377 In stock)

    The navX-2 Micro is the greatest sensor for orientation in competitive robots. navX2-Micro is a second-generation 9-axis inertial/magnetic sensor and motion processor. Designed for plug-n-play installation onto robots such as those used in the WorldSkills Robotics, FIRST Technology Challenge (FTC) and the FIRST Robotics Challenge (FRC), navX2-Micro helps build better robots by adding sophisticated navigation capabilities. Significant improvements over the classic navX-Micro allow for more accuracy, decreased yaw drift, and faster boot time. navX-2 Micro includes software algorithms for enhanced sensor calibration as well as KalmanFilter-based 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 teams – to use, learn, and explore. navX-Micro is a key component of Kauailabs’ 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.

    Improvements over navX "Classic":
    navX2-Micro features a new set of IMU & Magnetometer sensors with superior sensor specifications to those on the MPU-9250 sensor. This board has a faster 180Mhz microcontroller and an optimized startup time at 5 seconds versus 15 seconds. In addition, it has a completely new Kalman Filter-based Sensor Fusion algorithm running internally at a blazing fast 416Hz. 
     

    RoboRIO Installation
    It's recommended to connect to the RoboRIO using a USB Mini-B type (Male) to USB A type (Male) connector, navX-Micro can receive both power and also communicate with the RoboRIO. This preferred installation method allows the navX-Micro circuit board to be placed up to 6 meters away from the RoboRIO.
     

    IMPORTANT NOTE:  To avoid having the navX-Micro reset due to a RoboRIO brownout, connecting the navX-Micro to the RoboRIO via USB is highly recommended.
