Inertial Reference Systems (IRS) are traditionally used in the avionics systems as one important part of the navigation subsystem. The IRS are normally based on navigation grade inertial sensors which supposed a significant part of the aircraft budget. Due to its high cost, size and weight, IRS cannot be considered for other types of applications. In particular, for automotive and UAVs applications, it is nowadays widespread the use of MEMS technology for the inertial measurement units (IMU). However, these lower-cost sensors are not as reliable as the navigation grade ones and they present high values of noise power. One solution to reduce the noise of the IMU output and to be able to detect possible faults in the units is to combine several of them in a redundant manner. In order to perform a correct estimation and fault detection out of the redundant platform in a practical implementation, the precise relative orientation of the sensors has to be well determined.
We offer an internship / Bachelor thesis opportunity to a student in electrical, communications, computer science or related field engineering.
Your mission will address one or several of the following points related to the Redundant IMU platform in the picture with real measurement data:
