Inferring joint orientation on multi-joint arm

Not a robotics question in the strictest sense, I guess, but related closely enough, I hope: I have an arm-like articulated two(-plus-one)-joint appliance that I want to use as a 3D input device. It ...

Motion planning with Gaussian Process Regression

I was recently introduced to Gaussian Process Regression (GPR). I read multiple papers regarding use cases of GPR in robotics, however, they were more or less very limited. Use case from the ...

How does one implement a third order complementary filter for estimating altitude using data from an accelerometer and a barometer?

I am working with the CJMCU build of cleanflight on a small drone. As of now, the algorithm for altitude hold uses a first order complementary filter to combine data from the barometer and the ...

How to calibrate IMU for large scale deployments possibly using deep neural network

We were testing our visual SLAM algorithm on robots. We were getting poor performance. Then we calculated wite noise and random walk parameters (using kalibr) for the IMU and used it in our algorithm ...

Converting IMU random walk, bias instability to stddev, bias stddev, etc

I am trying to create an accurate IMU model in Gazebo based off of a real IMU that I am using. The Gyro specs are: Bias instability: 3.5 degrees/hr Angular random walk: 0.1 degrees/sqrt(hr) The ...

Covariance of Gaussian after sequence of homogeneous transformations

Assume we have a robot that moves and observes landmarks on his path. The path is composed of $k$ poses $s_1 \: ... s_k$ where $s_i = [x,\ y,\ \theta]$. From the sensors, we read the motion ...

FABRIK Inverse Kinematics Convergence Proof For Multiple End-Effector Case

Below, I've linked the FABRIK papers, the first of which is particularly relevant to my question, as it shows the convergence proof for the single end effector case, and this makes sense to me. But I ...
