YEI Technology in Portsmouth (formerly Yost Engineering) announced this week the issuance of US Patent No. 8,498,827 B2 “Combining Redundant Inertial Sensors to Create a Virtual Sensor Output.” The company said this patent outlines a method of getting high levels of accuracy and performance (navigation-grade performance) from commodity MEMS inertial sensors.

According to YEI Technology, commodity MEMS inertial sensors are cheap and readily available in comparison to traditional inertial systems. The methods outlined in this patent allow for commodity MEMS sensors to achieve high levels and accuracy and performance, reducing the need for more expensive and large inertial systems.

This is YEI Technology’s latest patent in our growing intellectual property and patent portfolio related to inertial sensing.

YEI has been involved in research and development in the field of inertial sensing technology and MEMS devices since 2005. Several other patents are currently pending, including “Physical Sensor Devices Having a Multi-Reference Vector System” and “Sensor Devices Utilizing Look-Up Tables for Error Correction and Methods Thereof”.
