Investigation of the measurement of position and attitude data using a low-end inertial measurement unit. Sensor errors are minimised using Kalman filters, several of which are designed and their effects compared. Sensor feedback is augmented with internal model validation. Simulation testing is employed and validated experimentally, using a quadrotor micro-UAV.
