A new project has been registered at Savannah 
The project account will remain inactive until a site admin approve or
discard the registration.


While this item will be useful to track the registration process, approving
or discarding the registration must be done using the specific "Group

######### REGISTRATION DETAILS ######### 

Full Name:
  Stribog the attitude sensing platform

System Group Name:

  non-GNU software & documentation

  GNU General Public License V2 or later

  The project will implement a platform for measuring user orientation
relative to sides of world: azimuth, pitch and roll. the hardware will
include a magnetoresistive compass, tilt sensor based on accelerometer ICs
and a microcontroller to manage all.

I have not any code to show yet. it will come after the board is designed.

The project will consist of hardware and software sections, both under the

The hardware section will include all information needed for reproducing the
system, i.e. schematics, boards layout in the form that most board
manufacturers accept and so on. this will be implemented using GPLd packages
gEDA ( and pcb
( this section is not software in usual
sense, but it quite fits the definition of program given in the GPL.

The hardware will be based on Honeywell magnetoresistive sensors, the most
precise relatively low-cost magnetic sensors, Analog Devices MMIC
accelerometers and probably Analog Devices angular rate sensors. the
microcontroller will be a Philips ARM-based LPC2138. all these are expected
to show about 1-degree precision.

It is also desirable to provide possibility to connect the platform with some
GPS sensor.

The software will include uC program, which should solve necessary navigation
tasks, and utilities to connect GNU/Linux PC host with the board. it possibly
will use some port of embedded OS like uCLinux or eCos, but most likely it
will run without any OS. 
it will be written in C and translated with GNU tools (maybe the distribution).

Other Software Required:
  gnu tools for ARM microcontrollers (

gEDA (

pcb (
