ASC also has a DAkkS accredited calibration laboratory in accordance with DIN ISO 17025:2018 for the measurand acceleration and offers a calibration service for accelerometers of all technologies and manufacturers.

ASC in Project SAMIRA

Precise and robust inertial measurement units (IMUs) are required for position determination in the SAMIRA project. The Fusion of GNSS position data and IMU measurement data enables an accurate determination of the position. As a result of this, the position of the train can be determined even under weak GNSS reception or short-term failures of the GNSS system. The ASC IMU 7 is used for this purpose.

ASC also supports the SAMIRA project with its long-standing expertise in the field of inertial measurement units. The company is in regular contact with the SAMIRA project team in order to be able to exploit the full potential of the IMU.
