### How to estimate yaw angle from magnetometer and gyroscope?

I'm using the MPU9250, it measures acceleration, magnetometer, gyro, etc. Complementary filter tutorial for this is here, however this tutorial does not have a magnetometer and I do, thus I thought I ...

### IMU Senosr fusion algorithm of gyro and accelerometer during acceleration of vehicle

Hello so we have a car with 10 IMUs mounted at different locations of the car and the idea is the measure the centripetal force at each location of the car and compare it to each other. We also need ...

### What could cause quaternion error to go up drastically when a gyroscope is rotated on more than one axis at a time?

Alright, I'm working on a small Arduino script that determines orientation using a a gyroscope and a quaternion. My hardware: LSM9DS1 IMU (Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Magnetometer) Teensy 4.0 My basic ...

### Using gyroscope to calculate forward kinematics

I want to measure the end-effector position of the robot that I attached. I'm using both gy-25 and gy-521 for calculation of the angle. As shown in the picture, joint 1 has 2 DOF, one for spatial ...

### Yaw, Pitch, Roll rate concepts and how to calculate them with an IMU

I need help understanding the difference from Y/P/R rate and the data that I can get from a gyroscope. I am using the raw readings of my IMU (MPU9250) and the Madwick Filter to calculate a quaternion ...

### How can there be a difference in quaternion values of two points taken from sensors where the orientation is exactly same?

I have two situations- A) One, the body with sensor embedded in it kept at rest. B) Second, the body is at rest for 10 secs, then undergoes some movement randomly and comes back to the exact ...

### Can a Madgwick IMU filter be used to determinate the tilt angle with respect to the horizontal plane

I am using a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyroscope to estimate the tilte angle between the X axis of the IMU sensor and the ground (horizontal plane). My robot is stationary at power up, so I ...
