Tilt Measurement with a MEMS Accelerometer Based on Kalman Filter


Article Preview

Aiming at the high noise level with Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) accelerometer, the Kalman filter algorithm is introduced to analyse its output data along with the noises. Experiments and simulations are designed to evaluate the performance and stability under static state and the response speed under dynamic state. The results indicate that the method works fast, steady and effectively with MEMS accelerometer filtering and tilt measurement.
