Jan Martin replied to James Carter's discussion Collecting data for new IMU Design
seems you are not even sure if is this going to be a AHRS or just a breakout board for a couple of sensors?
If I were you, I would do some research, then compare features of existing and upcoming IMUs, and then think about what niche to…"

Jan Martin replied to Brian's discussion ArduPilot with Non-ArduIMU
"I think the may difference is that the ArduIMU+ has a processor and runs a DCM filter to process it's sensors raw data.
While your Sparkfun 9DOF Sensor stick is a breakout board for three sensors only. No processing of the raw sensor data at all.

"One thing I noticed recently:

Jan Martin replied to Johann Van Niekerk's discussion APM/IMU camera Stabilization
only the last video shows actual video footage taken with such a system.
And its quite shaky for my taste.
I would like to see videos taken in real world flying conditions to evaluate them.

Jan Martin commented on William Premerlani's blog post rudder-roll stabilization
"Hi Bill,
what happens when there suddenly is not GPS signal anymore?
Does dead reckoning take over automatically?
I am aware there will be an growing error, but can one use this for some kind of "inhouse navigation"? E.g. to map the aisles of a…"

Jan Martin replied to Aaron's discussion FreeFlight 9DOF I2C IMU
"Looks good.
Obivous questions:
How does one avoid it being "off" in reality?
I understand it needs GPS coordinates to compensate for sensor drifting?
Do yo plan to sell it? When? Where? How much?
