[DPRG] Kalman Filter Tutorial at October 15th RBNO

    DPRG member Francis Grover has agreed to conduct a Kalman filter tutorial at the October 15th RBNO at 7:30. Francis not only teaches the use of Kalman filters at the college level, he also uses them. Francis was heavily involved in the technology that is used by television networks to track NASCAR race cars during a race. 

    This is a golden opportunity for you to learn about the “magic” that makes auto pilots and automatous cars possible using inertial measurement units (IMU).  If you have investigated Kalman filters, you know that they are matrix intensive and hard to understand. Francis will show how to construct the necessary matrixes using sensor outputs and give us insight into how they work. He will also touch on data fusion and plans to leave us with some sample code so we can get started. 

    See you on the 15th!

Doug P.
