We are trying to use the ADIS16448 IMU to calculate out speed/distance to use in autonomous mode in LabView, but we can’t find anything on the topic. If you have any information in using this device with LabView, please let us know. Thanks.
Do you know calculus?
Generally using an IMU to calculate displacement is a bad idea. IMU’s use accelerometers. To get position, you need to double-integrate the acceleration term, and that leads to large amounts of noise.
To determine you location on the field, use the gyro / yaw function of the IMU to accurate use direction, and use drivetrain encoders to monitor distance.
