The navX-2 Micro is the greatest sensor for orientation in competitive robots. navX2-Micro is a second-generation 9-axis inertial/magnetic sensor and motion processor. Designed for plug-n-play installation onto robots such as those used in the WorldSkills Robotics, FIRST Technology Challenge (FTC) and the FIRST Robotics Challenge (FRC), navX2-Micro helps build better robots by adding sophisticated navigation capabilities. Significant improvements over the classic navX-Micro allow for more accuracy, decreased yaw drift, and faster boot time. navX-2 Micro includes software algorithms for enhanced sensor calibration as well as KalmanFilter-based data fusion combining gyro, accelerometer, and magnetometer data into a 9-axis heading and high-quality magnetometer calibration including magnetic disturbance detection.
BRAND NEW NEXT-GENERATION SENSOR NOW AVAILABLE - leveraging new sensors and state-of-the-art algorithms to deliver a leap forward in accuracy and performance.
“Generation 2” navX2-MXP is a drop-in replacement for “Classic” navX-MXP, adding significant performance enhancements. See the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more information about navX2-MXP's new and enhanced capabilities.
*** Feature and Benefits Summary ***
Supercharge your robot: Field-oriented drive, auto-balancing, collision detection, motion detection, auto-rotate-to-angle, linear velocity vectors and more…
Expand your RoboRIO: 10 Digital I/Os, 4 Analog Inputs, 2 Analog Outputs, and TTL UART / I2C / SPI ports.
Plug-n-Play: easily installed via RoboRIO’s MXP Expansion connector or USB port.
Easy-to-integrate: C++, Java and LabView libraries and sample application code simplify integration.
Backwards-compatible: existing navX-MXP users can upgrade easily.
navX2-MXP is a must-have add on to any RoboRIO-based control system, and includes free software libraries, example code and many more features.
navX2-MXP was designed to use the RoboRIO MXP Expansion Connector - enabling plug-n-play installation on the National Instruments RoboRIO, and adding digital, analog I/O and UART / SPI / I2C port expansion. navX2-MXP will be compatible with the forthcoming RoboRIO 2.0; for more details, see the Next Generation Control System Update on the FRC Blog.
