As predicted, Analog Devices has updated their iSensor® product line with the new ADIS16407, a 10 degree of freedom inertial sensor. While this sensor is nearly out of the price range of hobbyists, the increased accuracy and precision could be useful for many research grade robots and sUAS.
The sensors ten degrees of freedom come from the accelerometer (3 DoF), Gyros (3 DoF), Magnetometer (3 DoF), and pressure sensor (1 DoF). It also comes with an integrated temperature drift compensation.
