Sensor Models


Model various sensors, including: IMU (accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer), GPS receivers, radar, sonar, and IR. You can mimic environmental, channel, and sensor configurations by modifying parameters of the sensor models. For active sensors, you can also model the corresponding emitters and channels as separate objects.
