3. 3. Inertia and Inertial Frame • Inertial Frame of Reference: is a frame in a state of constant, rectilinear motion with respect to one another: an accelerometer at rest in one would detect zero acceleration; • Newton’s First Law of Inertia: an observer in a inertial frame of reference observes a body: inertia is the natural tendency of that body to remain immobile or in motion with constant speed along a straight line; 6/16/2012 Biomedical Transducers - Inertial Sensors 3
4. 4. Inertia and Inertial Frame • Newton’s Second Law: A force will accelerate a body, in the direction of the force at a rate inversely proportional to the mass of the body; • Mass is the linear quantification of inertia; • The laws of Classical Mechanics (Biomechanics included) are valid and maintain the same form in all inertial reference systems. 6/16/2012 Biomedical Transducers - Inertial Sensors 4
5. 5. What is a sensor? • Instrument capable to transduce a physical quantity to a measurable electric signal; • Accuracy vs Precision; • Inertial sensor: functioning principle based on inertial phenomena. 6/16/2012 Biomedical Transducers - Inertial Sensors 5
6. 6. Inertial Sensors • Accelerometers: sense linear acceleration [m/s^2] along a specific axis; • Gyroscopes: sense angular velocity axis, measured in [rad/s]; • Magnetometer: sense the strength of a magnetic field, measured in [mGauss]. 6/16/2012 Biomedical Transducers - Inertial Sensors 6
7. 7. Inertial Sensor Benefits and Applications • Low cost; • Small size, Portable; • Ultra Low-power systems; • Wireless. • Ambulatory monitoring; • Unsupervised monitoring; • Fall & Gait; • Activity detection. 6/16/2012 Biomedical Transducers - Inertial Sensors 7

20. 20. From these plots we can conclude that: • The Xsens IMU, has overall better performance with respect to the Opal IMU; • The Xsens trend of noise drift is almost parallel to the time axis and the signals have lower offsets with respect to the Opal signals. 6/16/2012 20Biomedical Transducers - Inertial Sensors
21. 21. 2.5 Does the standard deviation of the noise correspond to that reported in the data sheet? • Xsens: As we can see in the tables above, the data reported in the datasheet and our measured ones, differ from a factor of ±.001; So we obtain very good measurements in terms of accuracy and precision; • Opal: In this case we have to convert the data from [μg/»Hz] to [m/s2] for the linear acceleration Noise and from [°/s/»Hz] to [rad/s] for the angular velocity, using the bandwidth data B = 50[Hz]. Also in this case we obtain good measurement in terms of accuracy and precision. 6/16/2012 21Biomedical Transducers - Inertial Sensors
