This project is related to the ongoing effort of AIRLab in developing low-cost robotic modules and systems. An Inertial Measurement Unit based on MEMS sensors (called R2P_IMU) has already been designed and realized. This project has the objectives of:

  • defining a model of R2P_IMU to enable its characterization;
  • characterizing the output of R2P_IMU in correspondence to physical action;
  • defining suitable calibration procedures for R2P_IMU;
  • testing the actual performance of the calibrated R2P_IMU;
  • exploring the possibility of processing the output of R2P_IMU (one or more units) borne by people to extract higher-level information about the behavior of the bearers.
