TransducerM TM200 Introduction

SYD Dynamics TransducerM Series is a complete solution for motion sensing applications, capable of providing computed data for determining orientation of an object in 3D space.

Out-of-box, it provides orientation data in terms of Euler angles, Quaternion, and, most commonly used Roll/Pitch/Yaw all of which can be computed with the reference to world frame (based on initial Earth’s magnetic field and gravity direction). It can also output calibrated raw sensor data, including angular rate, acceleration and magnetometer measurement[1].

The TransducerM TM200 communicates through serial port (TTL 3.3V and 5V compatible), running at adjustable baud rates up to 1Mbps (8-bit, no parity, stop bit 1) using a binary protocol. The protocol is described in detail at the User Guide. In addition, C/C++ source code communication library is provided to interface with the module, including an Arduino compatible library and example which can be exported from GUI.
