Getting Accurate Orientation Representation With Sensor Fusion

Getting accurate orientation representation is not a trivial task. Thanks to advances in MEMS technology, however, we now have access to many cheap motion sensors. And placing various types of sensors on a body gives us several different ways in which to measure that body's orientation in 3D space. This update describes the inner workings of Bluetera II's 9-axis sensor fusion. Read the full update.

Protocol Buffers to the Rescue

Protobuf (short for protocol buffers) is a structured data serialization method developed by Google. This extensible format, which is both language- and platform-neutral, is used extensively within Google's infrastructure, where it is considered the "lingua franca" for data. Protobuf is gaining momentum among developers and is being used more widely within open source software projects. Bluetera II is one of the first open source platforms to have adopted Protobuf as a medium for seamless information exchange between hardware and software. This update describes how that works and provides an example of Protobuf in action. Read the full update.

We Are Live!

Our campaign has launched! It will last just under seven weeks, during which we will provide regular updates so we can keep you apprised of our progress, answer your questions, release technical how-to guides, and offer up various other goodies. This update includes a few details about the campaign, some basic information about Bluetera II, and a brief introduction to Tensor-Iotera. Read the full update.
