ADMA-G: GNSS/inertial reference system for vehicle dynamics testing

The Automotive Dynamic Motion Analyzer (ADMA) is more than just a GNSS/Inertial Navigation System and has been specially developed for vehicle dynamics measurements in the automotive sector. Equipped with DGNSS (Differential Global Navigation Satellite System) and fiber optic gyroscopes, this highly accurate Inertial Navigation System (INS) defines new standards for vehicle dynamics applications in the automotive sector. Our inertial reference track system ADMA allows for constant measurement of acceleration, speed and position of moving vehicles in all three dimensional axes. Pitch, roll and course angles can be continuously and precisely measured with ADMA as well as course and side-slip angles as well as angular rates.

This makes the GeneSys’ ADMA inertial measurement unit (IMU) the best choice among inertial reference systems where challenging measurements with maximum accuracies are required.

Technical data of ADMA-G-PRO+, ADMA-G-ECO+, and ADMA-G-ECO can be found in the tables below or in the datasheet.

Applications with inertial reference system ADMA

The strap-down technology ensures that the inertial reference system ADMA is stable and resistant to unwanted vibration during use. This means the ADMA is very well suited for evaluation of Vehicle Dynamics and Driver Assistance Systems. The ADMA system is successfully used for Motorsports, Driver-less Systems, and Construction Machines. It is proven itself in the areas of Route, Track Wear, and Railway measurements.

ADMA Features

  • Measurement of vehicle motion in three axes, even during GNSS signal loss
  • Dynamic attitude and heading angle determination
  • Precise acceleration, speed, and position data due to extended Kalman filter
  • Precise position data with integrated WAAS/EGNOS-DGNSS receiver (<1m)
  • High precision position data (1 cm) with internal RTK2 DGNSS receiver and GNSS Base Station
  • Robust inertial sensors and strap-down technology without moving parts

Inertial navigation systems for any requirements

The models of the inertial reference system ADMA-G differ in the performance of the applied inertial sensors. Higher precision sensors are less sensitive to GNSS interferences or outages. All models are available with variable GNSS accuracy, ranging from simple L1 receivers with meter accuracy to L1/L2 RTK receivers with centimeter accuracy. Our gyro systems do not require an export license.
