If you are into Radio Control Models or robotics chances are that you have an old RC transmitter laying around. This article describes how to create a motion control module for your RC transmitter, that will allow you to control your model or robot by simply tilting the transmitter case. That’s right no more wiggling the sticks!
The iPad is finally out – one feature that might caught your attention is the built-in accelerometer and the ability to control a game by tilting the device. But it turns out you can do same thing on your laptop. Read on to find out how.
This article discussed the theory behind accelerometer and gyroscope devices. It shows a simple Kalman filter alternative, that allows you to combine accelerometer and gyroscope data in order to obtain more accurate estimates about the inclination of the device relative to the ground plane.
Schematics and code for construction of an accelerometer controlled USB gamepad based on a Microchip PIC microcontroller.
