"hi jeff, yes, updating from 3.2 to 3.6.2 solves most issues. i am surprised how it works! continue to play with it. i have a simpler example to filter the accelerometer values. will be very interesting to see the kalman filter in real action."

"@robert, As far as I can tell, qtoctave seems to be discontinued.  However, I did try running the Matlab routines using (the free) GNU Octave for Windows.  To my pleasant surprise, all the UAV State Estimation Matlab routines ran…"

"@jeff, i played with qtoctave - so far the mat files cannot be read. plus the directory handling is different. need to grab some flight data for transfering it as static data into octave.   have you exported some of your functions into…"

"I got a kick out of the "about the author" - crashed UAV's in 8 states and walked away from each incident.  Dont try that in a C-150.  Thanks for the ariticle, the pictures help somebody like me with only a very…"

"I have only skimmed this, but I liked the section on Longitudinal Flight Control starting on page 145. I've been trying to solve this control problem for helicopters.  In hovering, or slow, climbing flight, Fig 16 applies.  In high…"

"jeff, my 'control law' person in the office is quite busy. today i found out that i might be able to create 'c' code from the matlab code - we have a matlab realtime studio license. for myself i can say that i will try gnu octave…"

"Jeff, Many thanks for the article & code links. David, How's the revolution code for gps way point nav going? I am hoping to get into some of the cc3d code soon and rev code too if I have time. (Have 6 more weeks to wait until cc3d…"

"Many thanks for the nice words. I couldn't even begin to count the hours that went into the paper and the code, so I very much hope that someone has found it useful. Robert: I have not tried porting the Matlab code to an open source…"

Jeff Barton commented on Chris Anderson's blog post New Analog 10 DoF sensor
"Amusedly (and rhetorically) I ask:  At what point did the world begin interpreting "Degrees Of Freedom" as "Number of Independent Sensors"?  I suppose calling it "10 Independent Sensors based on 4 Different Sensing…"

Jeff Barton commented on srinath mallikarjunan's blog post DCM versus Kalman filter
"The Mahony paper mentioned by Roy Brewer is thorough and technical, to say the least.  Appendix A in that paper does provides a very good scalar description of the filter, though.   In addition to the Premerlani DCM IMU write up…"
