The Navigation Rig, or Nav Rig for short, is a modern-day, DIY wayfinder. The Nav Rig combines 5 Degrees of Freedom (1 2-axis Gyro and 1 3-axis accelerometer) with a digital Compass Module and a Field Diagnostic Rig
The Nav Rig can be programmed to provide real-time directional data and mounted on a remote-control craft or on a vehicle as a touchscreen, cockpit diagnostics interface. The triangles prop up the TouchShield Slide to make it easier to read while creating space for analog sensors to be connected.
Placed in an enclosure, it can be carried like a remote uber-GPS that responds to motion while reading out direction.
Like the Diagnostic Rig Pro, the Nav Rig Pro simply combines a dual-screen, dual-core powered setup with the compass, gyro and accelerometer.
They can also be easily mounted as a remote work station. If set up with the WiNet Kit , the Diagnostic Rigs can also be used to log data wirelessly.
The Navigation Rig comes with:
- 1 Compass Module
- 1 Dual Axis Gyro Module
- 1 3-axis accelerometer
- 1 Pair of Triangle Extenders
