"The thing that I keep struggling with is why I don't see a Euler equation like this anywhere.   When you say: Please note that we’re stressing out that these are small rotations, since in general when you combine large rotations the…"

"I still dont understand why is a DCM so important if I can just integrate gyro and low pass accelerometers. Could somebody explain me? Thanks in advance."

### DCM Tutorial – An Introduction to Orientation Kinematics

Posted on June 2, 2011 at 8:00am

While following William Premerlani and Paul Bizard work (DCM Draft 2) I put together some notes  that I eventually cleaned up and turned into a small tutorial on DCM matrix , orientation kinematics, angular velocity and a IMU algorithm (slighly different from Williams and Paul's) , for anyone interested check it…
