  • Hi Guys, I work for a shade sail company and we measure up our sails just using an ordinary tape measure. Is it possible to use this IMU to create a device for taking the measurements instead? All we need is xyz positions relative to a starting position (dead reckoning).

    I know there is creep in these devices but we will only need 3-5 readings, with an accuracy of 1cm, over a maximum plan distance of 15m (back and forth). This doesn't seem like excessive requirements, but I am unsure as to what is deemed "reasonable" accuracy with these things. I will probably have a go anyway, but just wondering if I am wasting my time.

    Any help is much appreciated. Many Thanks!
