What is an IMU Sensor? Answering the question will explain the function of this module a bit more easily. IMU is an electronic unit that combines linear acceleration and angular velocity data sent to the central processing unit in a single module. IMU is basically two separate sensors. One is an accelerometer and the other is a gyroscope. The HW-579 IMU Sensor module consists of a combination of a Gyroscope Sensor, Acceleration Sensor, and Angle Sensor.
