I am wondering if a DSP specific device would provide the same or better bang for the buck? Most of the sensor processing is the filter and that should be implemented very well with a DSP type of controller chip (possibly lower cost as well). Having worked on navigation systems using only accelerometers, gyros, wheel encoders I can say there are many sources of error. The greatest is external forces that exceed the sensors operating range (read here: 3g bump with a 2g sensor). Frequency response, sampling rates(and sampling rate errors), sample errors all contribute to the overall system error. Yes the Kalman filter will help significantly but there are limits.

I wonder what's responsible for the pronounced bias in the error?

This was an informative article. Maybe EETimes can find a way to host more master project descriptions. Anyone else think that's a good idea?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
