Xsens MTi-8 RTK GNSS/INS Sensor Module

Xsens MTi-8 RTK GNSS/INS Sensor Module

Manufacturer: | Categories: ,

The MTi-8 RTK GNSS/INS sensor module is a self-contained GNSS/INS with an interface to an external RTK GNSS receiver. The MTi-8's added RTK feature means you can improve your positional data from meter-level to centimeter-level accuracy.



The MTi-8 RTK GNSS/INS sensor module from Xsens is a centimeter-level GNSS/INS with an interface to an external GNSS receiver. The Xsens optimized strapdown algorithm (AttitudeEngineTM) performs high-speed dead-reckoning
calculations at 1 kHz allowing accurate capture of highfrequency motions.

As a member of the MTi 1-series, the MTi-8 is the smallest RTK-enhanced motion tracking module of its kind (12.1 mmm 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-8 relieves you of the task of designing, integrating and maintaining gyroscopes, accelerometers and other sensors for GNSS/INS functionality./p>

Xsens’ industry-leading sensor fusion algorithm provides high accuracy and sensor auto-calibration in a cost-effective module for a wide range of (embedded) applications. It relieves users from the design, integration and maintenance of gyroscopes, accelerometers and other sensors.

The MT Software Suite gives you full access to the MTi-8. It has a specially developed, user-friendly graphical interface, and drivers for various operating systems. Other tools and programs in the MT Software Suite include:

  • 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


  • Miniature form factor (12 mm x 12 mm)
  • Centimeter-level accuracy
  • Development Kit available
