Interfacing: Sparkfun 6DOF IMU, Arudino, complementary filter, c# attitude display

Hi all,


I just began working on my own INS/IMU over the past couple weeks. I've made pretty good progress so far. I'm using the newer Sparkfun 6DOF IMU board with an Arduino. I've opted to use a complementary filter, which so far look promising.


I've also made my own stand-alone attitude indicator display program, which is downloadable from my site. I've posted my progress thus far here:


Here's a screen-shot of my display program:



And here's a quick video I shot the other day:


I've still got a lot of work to do, but for being only 2 weeks in, not too bad. :-)

See the rest on my site:

Do you plan to use this with and APM or AP(l)?  I've often wondered about doing that but have never tried.
i like the your Yaw mod with tick marks... Thanks

Hi Brian,

I think you're referring to the ArduPilot Mega? I will be building my own platform. I'll be using either a PIC30 or 32 for processor. I'm using an Arduino right now just for convenience.

Thanks! My goal is to turn it into a full-out Primary Flight Display, which isn't hard, I just haven't gotten that far! :-) I can eventually make the source code available too.
