I'm new to the community so forgive me if this question has been asked before. I'm hoping one of the Bosh Technical Engineers can answer this question for me. We need a Digital Compass to provide 360 rotation for use on vehicles,mobile plant and heavy machinery such as Excavators, Dozers etc. We have been trialing the BNO055 but the issue we run into is calibration in the field since its impossible to perform a calibration insitue on power up. We need a compass that once calibrated in the workshop can be installed an only calibrated if it starts to drift; and if it needs calibrating in the field, the calibration is done by rotating the machine (excavator easy to do) or driving the vehicle in a circle etc. As the compass will be fixed to the vehicle it won't be able to be removed to re-calibrate and its impracticable to do every time its used. The vehicles & machines can also be subject to vibration due to road surface or operation. Can Bosh recommend a suitable sensor we can integrate into our products ? Attached is a photo of a typical installation on an excavator.
