Re: How to improve tracking precision

hi smoker77: Thanks for your reply. I measured the signal from one of the hedge to the stationary beacon again, please see the attached picture. In the picture, there are three vertical lines, red, green and yellow, most of time only red line is on the screen. Can you explain what they are used for ...

Re: Lost submap.

Hi Might you did not add and stationary beacons in your submap0 and submap1. There might be tricky when you add some stationary beacon in your submap: let say you want to remove stationary beacon 2 from submap2, then add it into submap0 first choose the submap2 you want to remove the stationary beac...

How to improve tracking precision

Hi supporter: I am tracking a mobile beacon in a university library gallery. The dimension of the gallery is about 30mX5m, you can hear people talks in the gallery but the overall environment is quiet. I need the mobile beacon sends me the X and Y location to my program. You can see in the upload vi...

Re: How to use IMU and ultrasonic for precise navigation

Hello, Yes, you can modify the Python example for parsing address of the beacon as you have shown. Current version of our example doesn't include this. I thing the parsing string should be: x, y, z, qw, qx, qy, qz, vx, vy, vz, ax, ay, az, HedgeAdr, timestamp, usnCRC16 = struct.unpack_from ('<lllhhh...

Re: How to use IMU and ultrasonic for precise navigation

Hello, To use IMU fusion you need to: 1. Enable IMU in 'IMU' settings section for hedgehog in dashboard 2. Execute accelerometer calibration as shown in section 10.9 of the manual: https://marvelmind.com/pics/marvelmind_navigation_system_manual.pdf 3. Enable output of IMU fusion data - "Processed I...

Re: Calculation of Hedge Axis Rotation by Quaternion _Starter Set HW v4.9-IMU

Hello, 1. Yes, every time after reset hedgehog starts angle around Z from zero, because it can't know real angle from some source. So quaternion gives orientation relative to some startup state. 2. Slow change of angle around Z axis is caused by gyroscope drift. This drift can be compensated by 'Ze...

Re: Calculation of Hedge Axis Rotation by Quaternion _Starter Set HW v4.9-IMU

Update: I set up the beacons in a bigger room (6m * 6m), all 4 beacons are put on corner of walls and above mobile hedge about 2.5m. In suspicion of hedge broken, I also try on another mobile hedge, put it on table, no touch. Everything looks very good except the rotation angle around Z axis keeps i...

Calculation of Hedge Axis Rotation by Quaternion _Starter Set HW v4.9-IMU

Hi everyone: I am doing a project tracking a moving person's location and orientation to several points fixed in reference frame by a Hedge. Code is conducted under Python 3.5/3.7. So I build a map by 4 static Beacons for the reference frame, and using the quaternion through IMU data to compute the ...
