We learn the principles behind accelerometers, sensors that measure acceleration due to motion and due to the Earth’s gravitational field.
All animals have a variety of senses that help them in everyday life. We’ll talk about interesting non-human senses that some animals possess and the often overlooked human sense of balance which is based on accelerometers and gyroscopes in our vestibular system.
We learn how accelerometers and gyroscopes can be combined into an inertial navigation system capable of estimating position and orientation of a vehicle, without GPS.
We recap the important points from this masterclass.
We will learn the essentials of inertial navigation, about sensors such as accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers and how we can use the information they provide to estimate our motion and orientation in 3D space.
We learn how to use information from three magnetometers to determine the direction of the Earth’s north magnetic pole.
