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 18/19 January 2021:

Panel Objectives

  1. Finish working with editors on 952 revision by March.
  2. Re-ballot and submit 1559 revision for publication by March.
  3. Complete draft of 1431 revision by the end of the year.
  4. Ballot and submit 1780 for publication by September.

Systems Committee Objectives

  1. Dispense with any comments received from the 1559 re-ballot by May.
  2. Dispense with any comments received from the 1780 ballot by September.
  3. Brainstorm elements of a Standard for Specifying an Inertial Navigation System (INS).

Sensors Committee Objectives

  1. Complete draft of 1431 by the end of the year.

Field of Interest

“The field of interest shall be the organization, systems engineering, design, development, integration, and operation of complex systems for space, air, ocean, or ground environments. These systems include but are not limited to navigation, avionics, mobile electric power and electronics, radar, sonar, telemetry, military, law-enforcement, automatic test, simulators, and command and control."
