MEMS-based Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) have recently become a game-changing technology in applications ranging from wearables in smart health systems and consumer electronics to aerospace, robotics and autonomous vehicles. This European Control Conference Workshop will present a broad and profound overview of the latest advances, open issues and challenges in the use of IMUs for realtime motion tracking, motion classification and feedback control.

The workshop program is a combination of presentation sessions with a methodological focus on the one hand and application-oriented discussions and hands-on sessions with real sensor data on the other hand. Thereby, active participation and discussion among attendees will be promoted. The workshop will be of interest to anyone in the systems and control community who has recently started to work with IMUs or has used them for several years.
