The authors report on the design, configure and test of isotropic accelerometer strapdowns for high-precision IMU and folded MEMS configuration. The biaxial low-g MEMS accelerometers are based on the Platonic solids. A Platonic strapdown is integrated into an embedded system for acceleration-array signal acquisition targeting rigid-body pose-and-twist estimation. The electromechanical properties for dynamic sensitivity are tested on a haptic manipulator, which shows that the position estimation matches reasonably well the encoder readouts. The Platonic strapdown is promising in folded MEMS IMU with chip-level miniaturization and high estimation precision.
