Sensor Fusion vs Multiple sensors with Fuser


I'm reading the Mbientlab documentation and came across two different sections, one regarding sensor fusion ( and the other explaining how to use multiple sensors with a fuser ( I was wondering what is the difference between the two? and when would you opt for sensor fusion rather than using a fuser for instance?

Thanks in advance for your help!


  • Fuser is so that you can pack accelerometer+gyroscope+magnetometer data into 1 timestamp so that you can get more raw sensor data all at once.

    Sensor fusion is so you can get quaternions or eulers vectors from the device.

    They are not remotely the same.
