Xsens MTi-2 VRU Sensor Module

Xsens MTi-2 VRU Sensor Module

Manufacturer: | Categories: ,

The MTi-2 VRU sensor module from Xsens is the smallest self-contained Vertical Reference Unit (VRU) available on the market. The Xsens optimized strapdown algorithm (AttitudeEngine™) performs high-speed, dead-reckoning calculations at 1 kHz, allowing you to accurately capture high-frequency motions.



The MTi-2 VRU sensor module from Xsens is a self-contained Vertical Reference Unit (VRU). Its sensors provide calibrated inertial data on the 3D rate of turn, 3D acceleration and 3D magnetic field, while an added sensor fusion algorithm computes 3D orientation data on the basis of a gravity-reference frame: drift-free roll, pitch, and accurate, unreferenced yaw.

As a member of the MTi 1-series, the MTi-2 stands out for its small form factor (12.1 mm x 12.1 mm), easy integration, low cost and robustness – as well as its strapdown integration algorithm. Suitable for a wide range of (embedded) applications, the MTi-2 relieves you of the effort of integrating and maintaining gyroscopes, accelerometers and other sensors as well as of having to design an all-in-one VRU solution.

You can manage your MTi-2 with the MT Software Suite, which contains an easy-to-use graphical user interface, as well as drivers for various operating systems. Many other useful tools are also included, such as:

  • MT Manager (GUI)
  • MT SDK, including programming examples for C, C++, C#, MATLAB, Python, ROS and Nucleo boards
  • Magnetic Field Mapper (MFM) calibration tool, as GUI and SDK


  • Smallest form factor on the market
  • Easy integration
  • 3D models available on request
  • Development kit available
