Abstract— Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) sensors are used widely in many different movable applications. Across many years, the improvements and applications of IMU have increased through various areas such as manufacturing, navigation, and robotics. This paper presents a literature review of several current IMU categories and applications. A few considerations on choosing an IMU for different applications are summarized and current methods being used to improve the accuracy of the output from IMU are also presented to avoid the errors that latest IMU is facing. Improvement methods include the control algorithms and type of filters for the sensor. Pros and cons of the types and algorithms used are also discussed in relation to different applications.

Index Terms— gyroscope, magnetometer, accelerometer, IMU
