Aircraft artificial horizon with interface to 3D Android application
The goal of this project is to provide a 6-axis Aircraft Attitude Indicator solution based on Android OS and cutting edge MPU-6000 chip by Invensense. Mentor Graphics emerging Inflexion UI technology to create 3D environment for Android devices has been utilized on i.MX53 platform. Motion-fusion algorithms have been developed as well as Invensense's proprietary and encrypted MotionFusion™ library has been tested. The project involves tools like Inflexion, Eclipse, Blender, MPLAB and C/C++ JAVA languages to create complete software solution. Hardware includes i.MX53 and external board designed for this project with microcontroller from Microchip with USB capabilities and MPU-6000 populated on it. USB and I2C interfaces have been implemented.
