In-Field Calibration and Orientation Modifications

This blog provides information relative to the process by which a user would perform an in-field Calibration and modify the orientation by using an orientation variable, Boresight matrix, or a NorthTek™ script. Most application environments have some sort of hard or soft iron magnetic interference, and as such an in-field calibration of the inertial system […]

NorthTek™ : Quaternions, Database Variables and Arrays

In this blog, I show how to create a real-time viewer of database variables representing the orientation of the inertial system.  This comes in handy from time to time when testing or troubleshooting.  This NorthTek™  script shows three different ways to represent the orientation of the nav sensor.  The first is the standard Roll, Pitch, […]

Cornell University Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (CUAUV) team wins AUVSI RoboSub Competition

Challenge The Cornell University Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (CUAUV) team is a group of 40 dedicated undergraduates who design and build an autonomous, robotic submarine in the annual, international RoboSub competition hosted by the Office of Naval Research and the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International. This competition tasks students to build robust vehicles capable of […]
