Simulate motion for sensor fusion

Last year, I introduced the Accelerated Innovation Community, sponsored by the MEMS Industry Group, to this space (see “Open source sensor fusion“). At the time, we were contributing our sensor fusion library to the MIG GitHub site. Kionix and PNI Sensor Corp. have contributed to the site,...

Mining sensor data, Part 4

In “Mining sensor data” Part 1 and Part 2, we saw how mechanical systems generate vibration signatures that can indicate the health or ill health of a system.  In “Creating a Data Logger embedded application using the Intelligent Sensing Framework (ISF 2.1)“, Dave Munsinger...

Mining sensor data, Part 1

Freescale’s made a big push in recent years in the realm of sensor fusion.  We are very proud of those accomplishments, and today we’re still the only major sensor vendor to take our solution fully open source.  But you can do a whole lot more with...
