Attitude Control

We just learned about the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU).

A lot of the sensors we've been talking about are all part of Attitude Control.

This means controlling where the rocket is and which way it is pointing.
The attitude of the rocket is where the rocket is moving, whether it's up, down, left, right, forward back.
