ABOUT IMU Sensor

The IMeasureU sensor: Blue Thunder is based on the smallest, lightest, and most robust wireless inertial measurement unit (IMU) in the world. IMU sensors capture high-fidelity data (sampling up to 1kHz) that can be stored on the device or transmitted via Bluetooth Low Energy to a computer or phone. Up to 8 sensors per mobile device can be synchronized simultaneously through IMU software.
