Xsens MTI-7 GNSS/INS Sensor Module

Xsens MTi-7 GNSS/INS Sensor Module

Manufacturer: | Categories: ,

The MTi-7 GNSS/INS sensor module from Xsens is the smallest self-contained GNSS/INS on the market. The Xsens optimized strapdown algorithm (AttitudeEngine™) performs high-speed, dead-reckoning calculations at 1 kHz, accurately capturing high-frequency motions.



The MTi-7 GNSS/INS sensor module from Xsens is a self-contained GNSS/INS that uses advanced sensor fusion algorithms to synchronize the inputs from the module’s on-board accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer with the data from an external GNSS receiver and/or barometer. The raw sensor signals are combined, and processed at a high data rate of 100 Hz, to produce a real-time data stream with the device’s 3D position, velocity and orientation (roll, pitch and yaw).

As a member of the MTi 1-series, the MTi-7 is the smallest motion tracking module of its kind (12.1 mm x 12.1 mm). It also stands out because of its easy integration, low cost, robustness and strapdown integration algorithm. Suitable for a wide range of (embedded) applications, the MTi-7 relieves you of the task of designing, integrating and maintaining gyroscopes, accelerometers and other sensors for GNSS/INS functionality.

Xsens’ industry-leading sensor fusion algorithm provides high accuracy and sensor auto-calibration in this cost-effective module for a wide range of (embedded) applications. It relieves you of the work of designing, integrating and maintaining gyroscopes, accelerometers and other sensors.

The MT Software Suite has everything you need to operate the MTi-7. The suite contains a specially developed, easy-to-use graphical user interface, as well as drivers for various operating systems. It also offers other useful tools and software programs, 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
