The secrets inside of autonomous car safety
There is a lot of debate about the safety of autonomous vehicles. What happens when an autonomous vehicle with no steering wheel has a major system fault while speeding down a highway? People can die. Safe Stop is the industry term for, when things go wrong, by which an autonomous vehicle is able to stop without human intervention.

What do developers need to know about current sensing technology?
ACEINNA has announced the availability of a new whitepaper for engineers involved in developing power management solutions for a wide range of industrial applications. Written by Khagendra Thapa, VP Current Sensor Product for ACEINNA, this new whitepaper outlines the basic issues that are addressed by current sensors and why they are important.
Current sensor will make power supplies cheaper
Power supply circuits are literally everywhere. From the ubiquitous power bricks that recharge our phones to kilowatt server supplies in data centres, every modern electrified gadget has a switched-mode power supply circuit. Who wants to carry around a heavy laptop brick? What data centre does not want to drive energy cost down while at the same time increasing compute capacity? By Mike Horton, CTO of ACEINNA
Navigation solution design for ADAS and autonomous vehicles
A new video explains how the ACEINNA Open Navigation Platform simplifies and accelerates navigation solution designs.
High accuracy current sensors based on AMR technology
The new MCx1101 family of ±5A, ±20A, and ±50A current sensors for industrial and power supply applications has been announced by ACEINNA. The first high accuracy wide bandwidth AMR-based current sensors on the market, units and evaluation boards are available now for sampling and volume shipments.
Accurate system for guiding autonomous vehicles
With built-in inertial sensors the new INS1000 high performance dual band RTK INS (Real-Time Kinematic Inertial Navigation System), has been announced by ACEINNA, for construction, agriculture and automotive applications. The INS1000 embeds ACEINNA’s nine degree-of-freedom inertial sensor technology to achieve Automotive Dead Reckoning performance in GNSS challenged environments.
How to develop navigation sensor solutions for drones
The OpenIMU solution from ACEINNA consists of three key parts. First is a family of Inertial Measurement Units consisting of three high-accuracy accelerometers, three high-accuracy gyros, and a powerful ARM Coretex. Zoom in on OpenIMU and OpenIMU CAN Second is an OpenSource tool chain and reference code for programming the IMU.
Measuring dynamic tilt with an IMU
Why would you want to know the dynamic tilt angle on a vehicle? Consider a classic example of a plane in the clouds. The pilot cannot see the ground, nor can he or she trust their instincts because they will feel a false gravity when the aircraft is turning. This means they need a dynamic tilt sensor which – in an aircraft - is often called a vertical gyro or the artificial horizon. Similar technology is used in automobiles.
