Sensor Fusion Or Sensor Confusion? via @AltEmbedded

Sensor Fusion Or Sensor Confusion? via @AltEmbedded

It’s summer, and sensors are proliferating faster than weeds. Smart phones and tablets have built-in sensors such as accelerometers and magnetometers. Some mobile devices incorporate GPS receivers to provide even more sensor information to applications. Dealing with raw data from these sensors can be a nightmare given their wide range of capabilities and performance levels. It’s one reason why operating systems like iOS, Android, and Windows provide a standard interface for many sensors. Unfortunately, sensor technology is progressing faster than the software can keep up. Technology demonstrations at trade shows seem impressive, but they typically bypass the operating systems by using a device driver. Applications need to be written specifically to take advantage of new features. Sensors Going Digital Handling a single sensor can be a challenge all by itself since sensors ...
