Kalman Filter GPS + IMU

I know this probably has been asked a thousand times but I'm trying to integrate a GPS + Imu (which has a gyro, acc, and magnetometer) with an Extended kalman filter to get a better localization in my ...

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 ...

Can a mu-metal enclosed compass measure the earth's field?

I am thinking about using a combination of mu-metal, a faraday cage, and spacial separation to reduce magnetic interference from a brushless motor on a compass sensor. The compass will be used to ...

How to transform raw accelerometer data into the Earth fixed frame to determine position

I have data from a TeleMega and do not understand how to apply the rotation matrix for the accelerometer data so that I can get the more accurate position estimate from my accelerometer. My data comes ...

Adding magnetic field vector to a Kalman filter

I currently have an error state Kalman filter with the state vector $(p, v, q, \omega, a, g)$ where $q$ is the quaternion orientation. I would like to add the information coming from a magnetometer to ...
