I'm working on a project with an Arducopter and I want to switch to Inertial Navigation to navigate from waypoint to waypoint (which are programmed into the autopilot) in the event that the GPS signal is lost for whatever reason. Has anyone already worked on or experimented with this kind of secondary navigation?
The arduino does not have enough processing power to run an inertial navigator in addition to the autopilot code. Try checking out Open Pilot.
Inertial navigation is very imprecise in this circumstances due to very high drift...
