This work develops the conceptual design of an inertial velocity sensor drawing upon the impedance synthesis method in Part I of this paper. Specifications are frequency based impedances and resulting designs are configurations of dynamic energy storing and dissipation elements. The design procedure can be extended to a class of systems design problems where frequency response performance is of primary importance. A key to this work is that the method designs systems from scratch; initial configurations are unknown. As a theme example to demonstrate the utility of the method for conceptual design, constrained and unconstrained inertial velocity sensors are configured based on input-output performance requirements. Such sensors find application in many motion control problems including mechanism and manipulator control, and vibration isolation control. The design methodology generates a number of different sensors that can measure absolute velocity for some or all ranges of frequency.
