Gyro and Accelerometer Panel (GAP)

Primary focus is to develop standards, standard terminology, specification formats, and test procedures for, and to promote understanding of components and systems for detection or measurement of linear or angular motion. A Standard for the Specification of Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) is currently under development. Strategic test procedures for emerging new sensor technologies.

The purpose of the Panel is to create standard terminology, specification formats, and test procedures for, and to promulgate understanding of components and systems for detection or measurement of linear or angular motion.

The Panel is composed of representatives of industry, government laboratories, educational institutions and professional societies who are knowledgeable of the characteristics, operating principles, sources of error, and areas of application of these components.

Standing Committees:

The Gyro and Accelerometer Panel meets for two days every two months and is comprised of two committees, one working on sensor-related documents and the other working on systems-related documents. For information on the venue for the next meeting, please visit the panel web page on the IEEE server, http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/gap/


Objectives:

The panel and its committees established the following objectives at the meeting that was held on 14/15 January 2019:

Panel Objectives

1. Ballot and publish IEEE Std 528 “IEEE Standard for Inertial Sensor Terminology” revision by the end of the year.

2. Submit a PAR for IEEE Std 952 “IEEE Standard Specification Format Guide and Test Procedure for Single-Axis Interferometric Fiber Optic Gyros” revision, ballot and publish by the end of the year.

3. Submit a PAR for IEEE Std 836 “IEEE Recommended Practice for Precision Centrifuge Testing of Linear Accelerometers” revision by the end of the year.

4. Submit a PAR for IEEE Std 1559 “IEEE Standard for Inertial Systems Terminology” revision by the end of the year.

5. Submit a PAR for IEEE Std 1431 “IEEE Standard Specification Format Guide and Test Procedure for Coriolis Vibratory Gyros” revision by the end of the year.

6. Assign legacy documents for review to the appropriate committee based on due date and state of the document.
 

Systems Committee Objectives

1. Complete 100% of IEEE Std P1780 “Standard for the Specification of Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs)” first draft by 1 November 2019.

2. Filter and prioritize list of new terminology to add to IEEE Std 1559 “IEEE Standard for Inertial Systems Terminology”  and develop definitions for the high priority items.
