I'm new to the list. :-)
My name is Mateus, I'm an Engineer and work with marine autopilots.
Well... I've already got a question...
I've developed a compass for use in vessels.
at the first version I had my compass working, using Eulers' for
tilt compensation (heading reference). And using my Z-axis gyro for
tracking (output heading itself). (I had an 1 axis gyro)
Now I've got a version 2 board, with 3-axis gyro and I want to use it as in its best...
flat "100%" of the yaw movement is on the Z-axis sensor. But when the
board tilts, the yaw movement is "divided" between 2, or the 3 axis of the
gyro, right? (And I can see that just looking the gyro's output.) But
I'm not sure how much of "each" axis to use....
The yes/no question:
Using Quaternions is the answer for my problem?
The maybe part:
it possible to implement (is there a known formula) that uses Gyro's
X,Y and Z, and pitch and roll (from the 3axis Acc) to do that?
Thank you all,
