02/18/2020 ∙ by Yue Yang, et al. ∙ 0

The accurate Attitude Heading Reference System(AHRS) is an important apart of the UAV reliable flight system. Aiming at the application scenarios of near ground navigation of small-UAV, this paper establishes a loose couple error model of the gyroscope/accelerometer/magnetometer, and presents an improved FastEuler Double-Layer Kalman Filter algorithm. Using low-cost devices which include MEMS Inertial Measurement Units(IMU) and magnetometers, this paper constructs the AHRS hardware and software systems of UAV, and designs the offline and real-time verification platforms. Moreover, the attitude changes of UAV is analyzed by the simulation and flight test, respectively. In addition, an adaptive factor is used to adjust the measurement noise covariance in order to eliminate the harmful effects of linear acceleration in the accelerometer, which is solved the roll and ptich angle. The experimental comparison with the Complementary Filter shows that the proposed algorithm can provide accurate attitude information when UAV is flying, which improves the accuracy and reliability of attitude solution, and removes the influence the gyro bias for the attitude estimation.
