Technical note regarding compass chips (magnetometers); most drones are using magneto-resistive magnetometers like the Honeywell 5883/5983, and not Hall effect sensors. One of the most common Hall sensors, the AK8963, has been…"
Hello UAV enthusiasts,I recently created a slide deck on the topic of sensors for attitude estimation (i.e. gyroscopes, accelerometers and magnetometers). In these slides, I reviewInstallation considerations,Stochastic models,Bias characterization,Sensor calibration, andConceptual models.The methods and concepts contained in these slides have been "battle tested''.
