Abstract

This paper presents a viable quaternion-based Adaptive Kalman Filter (q-AKF) that is designed for rigid body attitude estimation. This approach is an alternative to overcome the limitations of the classical Kalman filter. The q-AKF processes data from a small inertial/magnetic sensor module containing triaxial gyroscopes, accelerometers, and magnetometers. The proposed approach addresses two challenges. The first one concerns attitude estimation during various dynamic conditions, in which external acceleration occurs. Although external acceleration is one of the main source of loss of performance in attitude estimation methods, this problem has not been sufficiently addressed in the literature. An adaptive algorithm compensating external acceleration from the residual in the accelerometer is proposed. At each step, the covariance matrix associated with the external acceleration is estimated to adaptively tune the filter gain. The second challenge is focused on the energy consumption issue of gyroscopes for long-term battery life of Inertial Measurement Units. We study the way to reduce the gyro measurement acquisition while maintaining acceptable attitude estimation. Through numerical simulations, under external acceleration and parsimonious gyroscope's use, the efficiency of the proposed q-AKF is illustrated.
