Micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) gyroscopes have advantages for orientation sensing and navigation as they are small, low cost and consume little power. However, the significant noise at low frequencies produces large orientation errors as a function of time. Controlled physical rotation of the gyroscope can remove the constant part of the gyro errors and reduce low-frequency noise. As adding motors for... read more

Integrated Navigation Systems Using Parallel Filtering
The authors look at the development of a robust navigation system employing a GNSS receiver, accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetometers, an airspeed device and dead reckoning to supply a blended navigation solution to a flight control system on a small, unmanned aerial vehicle. read more
