Hi Flavio,

The ahrs_aligner tries to detect when the vehicle is not moved and then lowpasses the imu measurements. These (lp_*) variables are then passed to the align function of the specific AHRS to calculate the initial attitude (and set the initial bias).

You could just as well use only one (the first) IMU measurement to set the initial attitude, but it might be quite wrong if you move the vehicle at that point in time.

Thanks Felix, already found the equation I needed. 
Now i have another problem that I don't understand concerning ahrs_align. I don't know exactly what align does and how lp_gyro,lp_accel and lp_mag are calculated. Lets say for gyro, is it the current lp_gyro the current gyro/60? 

And why are the lp alignments used for direct measure instead of the normal imu? (unless I'm seeing this in a wrong way...)
Thank you again!

You might want to take a look at the floating point implementations first, since they are easier to understand without all the shifts used for different fixedpoint representations.

F_UPDATE is the update frequency.

Hi guys!
I would like to know exactly what expressions are used to calculate the
direct angles from accel and mag by this filter, since bitshifts is often
used and confuses me.

Currently, I am using the following expressions in matlab to reproduce what
pprz does:


for the roll and pitch angles the dynamics is the same but with an error of
about 4 or 5º everytime. For the mag is completely different the result.

By the way, can someone also tell me why F_UPDATE exists and what it does?

Thank you so much guys,
