I'm designing an AHRS using Invensense MPU-9250 9-axis (Gyroscope + Accelerometer + Magnetometer) motion tracking device. I'm able to display the data from all the 3 sensors but not getting how to do the fusion. I tried to merge Accelerometer and Gyroscope data using the algorithm explained in this article but couldn't get proper result.

Kindly tell me how can I do the sensor fusion to get Pitch, Roll and Yaw for my AHRS.

Thank you

Am I correct in understanding that Racc has units of g ? If yes, then how can it be added to the Rgyro (which is angle after integrating gyroscope data with time) and the angle at time n-1?

Thanks,

A.

Matt D. answered the same question already in 2013.

"For the moment ignore the numerator in the overall equation and the sqrt and just look at the part

(x^2 + y^2 + z^2) / (x^2 + z^2)

This can be broken out into

((x^2 + z^2) / (x^2 + z^2)) + (y^2 / (x^2 + z^2))

reducing to

1 + (y^2 / (x^2 + z^2))"

Thanks Matt and I hope this helps if anyone has this question again!

I've got a question referring to the fusion algorithm.

I don't get the step from

x = ( x / SQRT(x^2 + z^2) ) / SQRT( (x^2 + y^2 + z^2) / (x^2 + z^2) )

to

x = sin(Axz) / SQRT (1 + y^2 / (x^2 + z^2) )

I mean, I understood that

x / SQRT(x^2 + z^2) = sin(Axz)

but where does the y^2 come from?

x^2+y^2+z^2 = 1

and so I'd think that SQRT( (x^2 + y^2 + z^2) / (x^2 + z^2) ) is SQRT(1 / (x^2 + z^2) )

I hope somebody can tell me about my fault, because I'm thinking about this since 3 days…

Thanks a lot!

]]>if you are provided five arrays Acc_X, Acc_Y, Acc_Z, Gyr_X and Gyr_Y which are the measurement from accelerometer and gyroscope for 10 seconds, then how are you going to combine the data and find out the movement?

which formula i have to use here?

]]>Please in the ecuation for gyroscope section :

RateAxz=(323*3.3v) / (1023-1.23v) / (0.002v/deg/s ) = '94 deg/s

How can iprint in arduino monitor only Degrees (not include, not rate angular speed) b

Thanks a lot.

From this data you can also relably deduct by differentiation angular acceleration.

It is possible, but it is unreliable (without an external refference such as GPS, altimiter or a triangulation system) to calculate by integration from data above the linear velocity and integrating once again you can get the position.

Vertical position and velocity (altitude) can be reliably be estimated if you use a “10DOF” containing an additional barometer.

Hope this helps and answers your questions. Have a great day.
