Hi,

I am just a newbie regarding the Kalman Filter, and was hoping to have some discussion from those with experience on implementing it on the 8 bit AVR platform or FPGAs. I know this question has been addressed before on this forum, but I need a more focused discussion.

Is it possible to do?

What are the limitations imposed by the AVR platform?

Why would someone choose to implement the Kalman Filter with FPGAs instead of the slower 8 bit AVR, especially for lower frequency < 1KHz signals?

Here is some webstuff I found...

Kalman Filtering

By Dan Simon

Embedded Systems Programming

Originally developed for use in spacecraft navigation, the Kalman filter turns out to be useful for many applications. It is mainly used to estimate system states that can only be observed indirectly or inaccurately by the system itself.
