I was usiing a micromag compass(guys its a hell experience with mags..im quitting to use mags unless they r 3-axis and magnetically shielded)Now i thinkGPS shud be used ....now that im gonna run it in binary so i expect a 5hz response...(make sure the vehicle moves abt 3m/s "In INDIA" to detect heading)..FInally im developing a QUAD with hitec outrunners
...i have alrdy workedTHE KALMAN FILTER out
the yellow line --> Actual Gyro angle in degrees(oops they do drift...look below)BLACK line --> Kalman+gyro+acceleroREd--> accelro degrees(oops it jitters)
im usin IMU v2 6DOF by sparkfun...im using the IMU in BINARY(wowee binary is fun)THE GCS i have made in VS C# has 3 displays1) Telemetry2)Real Time Vehicle Tracker(a Google map backgorund scaled to gps pts)3)Live Video Relay (video can be processed for objects as small as human ,mines, its can detect patterns if sign is give...have also developed a damn good image processing using SIFT(oops it gives 0.25 FPS hehe..but other r really fast))...all developed in MATLAB.
this 1 gives 0.25 FPS....but its good (ref. Dr. Lowe)...any suggestions...most welcome...
