I am a student looking for some basic information. I need to discuss chassis roll over sensors in my thesis.
I have looked at the ADXRS300. Is this a chassis roll over gyro that is currently used by automotive manufacturers?
If not, what other model should I use?
Yes, it is one of the gyros used by automotive customers for roll-over detection and yaw rate sensing for electronic stability control. We also have the ADXRS642, ADXRS652 and digital output ADXRS800.
Sorry for the slow reply, I was caught up with winter examinations. Thanks for your reply, the information was very useful. I also need to evaluate lateral acceleration sensors; I am aware that there are a number of these available from Analog Devices. Are there specific lateral acceleration sensors that are generally associated with the ADXRS800 (i.e. do Analog Devices supply a combined yaw and lateral sensor).
The ADIS16445 or ADIS16448 offer Tri-axis accelerometers and tri-axis gyroscopes in the same package.
Thanks for your reply.
It appears neither of those are designed for automotive stability control. I am looking for a combined sensor suitable for automotive stability control. Do you have any further suggestions
To be honest, I am not an expert on what the requirements are for automotive stability control. Can you help me better understand where they fall short & I will be glad to do some research for you. Is this for a system that will be embedded in a future automobile?
