IEEE/AESS Gyro and Accelerometer Panel


This site is maintained for the use of the IEEE/AESS Gyro and Accelerometer Panel in the development and maintenance of industry standards for inertial sensors and systems.

It has public areas, which may be of use to persons interested in the work of the panel, the scope of its activities, and to provide information that may be of general interest.

There are private areas, accessible by password only, which contain unapproved meeting minutes, drafts of standards, and other working materials. This information is not considered suitable for general distribution, as it has not as yet been approved as an industry standard.

A presentation to the IEEE Sierra Vista Section in July 1999 describes our structure and method of working.

This 2014 presentation describes what the GAP is and why a company or individual should support it.
