IMU / Accelerometer orientation?

Post by GTIspirit »

What is the default IMU / Accelerometer orientation?

So if the RC Track Mk2 is mounted in vehicle with CAN / OBDII port facing foward (so the logo lettering is "normal")

Which direction is +X, +Y, and +Z? Did we get back to the industry standard SAE J670 convention? ... sequence=4
+X is forwards
+Y is to the right
+Z is down

Normal orientation is with the connectors facing forward. We have that covered in the wiki: ... 2#Mounting
