Inertial measurement units (IMUs) including accelerometers and gyroscopes are becoming very common and can be found in cell phones, fitness trackers, and other wearable devices. With the growth in wearable computing and body sensor networks, IMUs are also becoming more prevalent researchenvironments for estimation and tracking of human motion. Wedemonstrate that the accelerometer angle estimate is inaccurate for typical motions and present a method using a kinematic model to correct the… CONTINUE READING
