Timestamp options
SW Release Applicability: This tutorial is applicable to modules in both NVIDIA DriveWorks and NVIDIA DRIVE Software releases.

The IMU sensor provides several timestamp options depending on sensor type. These options can be toggled using the output-timestamp sensor parameter, and work by modifying the dwIMUFrame.timestamp_us returned when reading a frame. The following table summarizes the timestamp options available for each supported IMU sensor. The default option is host.

Note: this parameter does not modify raw data. For more information, see Sensor Timestamping.
