Airmar Technology Corp.’s PB200 integrated weather station addresses two of the major concerns of boaters: navigation and weather. Multiple sensors, including GPS and gyroscopes, provide a complete navigation and weather station. Analog Devices’ ADIS16080 gyroscope offers ± 80 degrees/sec response, matching the requirements of dynamic marine conditions. That response helps navigation systems combine rate of rotation and compass data to improve overall heading accuracy. A temperature sensor is also embedded in the module.
With a better understanding of materials’ response to load and temperature, researchers could potentially use the knowledge to improve design. The research could even help geologists studying plate tectonics.
