Linear Acceleration from MetaMotion R

Hi Eric,
I am using a MetaMotion R and I am streaming linear acceleration using the sensor fusion algorithm on the board. However, even when my devices is inert, the streamed values are different from 0 due to noise i'm guessing. Is there any approach to filter that noise out of the linear acceleration?
My overall project goal is to compute velocity on each axis with the accelerometer data.

Thank you


  • Apply a high pass filter over the data or offset the values from the baseline values when the board is at rest.

    We are working on adding some calibration tools for the algorithm so that should improve the accuracy of the fused data.

  • High pass filter doesn't work on fused data (linear acceleration) but it works on data from just the accelerometer. The second option has worked for me . Thanks for your prompt reply.
