Sensors for Attitude Estimation

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''.
