### Problems about Complementary Filter IMU tuning

I'm developing a project consists of an IMU controlled by Arduino through which you can send via a radio module, the data to the PC of the three Euler angles and raw data from the sensors. For ...

### How to determine the parameter of a Complementary Filter?

I know that the Complementary Filter has the functions of both LPF and HPF. But I think my understanding on the principal behind it is still unclear. I am quite new on digital signal processing, and ...

### How are units of noise measurement related to units of a sensor's data measurement?

I'm trying to understand how noise is represented for accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers so that I can match the requirements of my project with the standard specs of these sensors. I ...

### Do I really need a gyro for an airplane flight stabilization system?

I'm working on a basic airplane flight stabilization system, as the precursor to a full autopilot system. I'm using a salvaged Wii Motion Plus and Nunchuk to create a 6DOF IMU. The first goal is to ...

### Is an accelerometer sufficient to detect displacement, or do I need an INS?

Do I need a complex system (of gyros, accelerometers etc.) to detect if a robot has moved forward or can I simply use an accelerometer. I'm building a robot that learns to walk and I need to detect ...

### How to choose a good IMU for a wheeled robot?

At our lab, we have a several "Kurt" type robots (about the size of a Pioneer, six wheels, differential drive). The built-in gyroscopes are by now really outdated; the main problem is that the ...
