This project is solving the ArduSat challenge.
This project aims to develop the Forth Generation of the ArduIMU. The current one (ArduIMU V3) can be found on http://code.google.com/p/ardu-imu/ ArduIMU is an Arduino based Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). The hardware is almost developed. The software should be upgraded from the version 3 to match the Fourth Generation. The outcome of this project can be used for the Ardusat. Besides, it was been proposed that the ArduIMU V4 can be used to drive a Mars Rover using natural walking and head rotation. For that purpose, a simulator has been developed which can be run on a Windows Machine. The simulator can be run without the ArduIMU V4 for demonstration purposes and can be found on the following link http://umsats.ca/wp-content/tsat/NASAJAM.rar
