Howdy, I am a new Trident owner. I wanted to ask if anyone has tried to use the accelerometer data to integrate and estimate of the relative change in position while underwater, and also used the starting and ending GPS positions to re-map those relative positions to latitude and longitude? Seems like this would be fairly easy to do, but might require deleting or filtering the accelerometer data at the beginning and end of a dive when it is being yanked around by the tether. And adding the depth sensor data to create a 3-D track would be a bonus. My goal is to place tracks into Google Earth and to know what areas the ROV has explored. I appreciate any input.
(sorry if this is discussed in a separate topic, but i first tried searching for something similar).
(i might also start a separate topic to see if there is a control program to automate video transects)
