I would like to create a simulation model (basically a signal generator) which will allow me to generate the 3 output signals of an accelerometer based on 3 location input signals (x,y and z). I would like a more realistic model of the data produced by an accelerometer (with some noise and bias offsets).
How can I convert the series of points into a simulated accelerometer output?
I have a series of positions which describe a trajectory in 3D space...If an accelerometer was moving along the trajectory described by the series of positions, I am interested in knowing (simulating!) the data that the accelerometer would produce as the result of moving along the described trajectory.
I could just calculate the 2nd derivative of the trajectory, but that would probably be too ideal. I am looking for a model which is more realistic.
