OpenWave #4 : Observations on vertical displacement

Some observations on vertical displacement: Getting displacement data from an acceleration signal is possible by double integration. This double integration causes issues as any error present in the original acceleration signal will accumulate at an exponential rate in the displacement … Continue reading

OpenWave #3 : First rotating arm test results

The breadboard circuit has been attached attached to the end of a rotating arm and it’s streaming data back to a PC. So just as a recap, the breadboard contains a teensy 3.6, a BNO55 9DOF IMU sensor and a … Continue reading
