ArduIMU V3 Magnetometer Calibration???

Started this discussion. Last reply by Yury Matselenak Jun 4, 2014. 1 Reply

Hi,So I know that the APM has Magnetometer Calibration(finding the offsets) built into the code but the ArduIMU v3 does not. Does anyone have the link to that snippet of code that calibrates the…Continue

ArduIMU V3 output Error

Hi,I just ordered the ArduIMU and when I try to view it from the arduino serial window it only works for 9 loop refreshes then it displays a line of random characters and then repeats. I believe it…Continue

"wow. great.Maybe you should test a different ground pattern (circle and cross in the middle). In case you lose the pattern, you more robust calculate in which direction/rotation you've lost it. But keep us updated (maybe on your youtube…"

Precision Land ArduCopter

Did some test flights this weekend for my precision landing program(A detailed explanation of this project can be found here.). They were short due to the cold conditions and battery life but beneficial. I was able to attempt the landing four times. All attempts went well in that the Copter didn't crash and held its position using vision. Only one attempt succeeded. Two had to be…See More

"Ok. The occlusion detection with the car was neat. Does it actually predict the location of a moving target or does it just mark the frame position where the target was last seen?  "

Hi Daniel, yeah I don't actually have a camera running at 100Hz :) But I profiled the processing time for each frame and it was less than 10ms.

TURN UP THE VOLUME!!! THE AUDIO IS QUIET!!!!

For the last few months I've been working on vision assisted landing for ArduCopter. The hope is to provide a means of landing a multirotor in a precise matter which is currently not attainable with GPS based landing supported by ArduCopter.

The development of this software was stimulated…

ArduIMU V3 code is out of date -- team up to improve it?

Posted on June 28, 2013 at 7:00pm 11 Comments

Hi,

I've seen huge improvements in terms of sensor fusion algorithms implementations into the APM 2.5, but none of those changes have been made to the ArduIMU v3. As a result the arduIMU is EXTREMELY sensitive to vibration and drift. I have taken…

Hi,

For the past year I have been engineering my own autopilot shield for the Arduino Mega(and unintentionally the Due). I hope to be finished by the time AVC rolls around, but I have run into an issue. I currently an using 3 separate Arduinos(Mega: autopilot, ArduIMU, and Atmega328: fail…
