Pertinent IMU Axes


Lab 6: Measurement and Filtering

This is lab 6 of 6 in the course
by Quanser Inc.
It is important to measure the pitch of an flying system accurately for the control system to work. In this lab, students will learn about the applications of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), which is a combination of an accelerometer and a gyroscope with coincident axes. Students will explore the concept of measurement and filtering by measuring the acceleration in each linear axis along with the angular velocity about those axes allows for a complete description of the attitude of the sensor.
