I've seen huge improvements in terms of sensor fusion algorithms implementations into the APM 2.5, but none of those changes have been made to the ArduIMU v3. As a result the arduIMU is EXTREMELY sensitive to vibration and drift. I have taken a look at the APM sensor fusion code(in an attempt in port it over) and I noticed every thing is pretty much in a custom library.
This makes the code especially hard for someone like me(who doesn't know how to use the libraries) to port over, but it should be fairly easy for someone who knows how to use the libraries to port over.
I don't really know any developers on diydrones but I would love to team up with some of them and improve the arduIMU code. I mean it hasn't been updated since August 2012. I have made improvements myself which improve its speed and ease of interfacibility......I just don't know where to post them?
The arduIMU is the only affordable sensor board on the market which comes with sensor fusion software already installed. The software just isn't very good. Why do I feel like this project has been abandon. It wasn't even transferred to the new downloads page.
