I think my odometry is calibrated reasonably well. Well enough considering that I need to go to a conference for the week (giving two talks) before the AVC and my testing time will be severely constrained. Even worse, I wont have my shop and I’ll have to work from a hotel room and test in an as-yet-to-be-determined parking lot. That’ll be the extent of my fun in Monterrey.
Anyhow, check this out: Several back and forth East-West runs on my street. The straight segments are 100 feet long and then I drive off another ten feet or so and turn around and come back to my marker. Not bad, although I do drift. These results fuse odometry, a gyro, and a magnetometer. There is no absolute position reference.
