Triaxial MEMS accelerometer inertial navigation

  1. Oct 10, 2014 #1
    Hi all!!
    I have a question that maybe some people of this great comunity can help.
    I´m working with a platform with 16 MEMS accelerometers distributed along the whole surface with a knew position and orientation, I have to measure the differences in acceleration on the Z axis, to get the surface defined by the accelerometers. It works perfectly in static mode.
    The problem is that this platform should measure at the same time that the platform is traveling along a unidirectional way. Then the accelerations induced to ride the platform disturbs the Z measurements, and maintain a constant velocity (acc=0) is not possible.
    Is there a way to remove this accelerations from the measurements to get a "clean" Z values?
    Thanks a lot to everyone!

    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?
