Speed Down

The speed down sensor measures the velocity in the Z axis of the platform. Works in the same way as the altimeter, but in this case, instead of a position reading, the magnitude measured is velocity.

Speed Down - Menu Parameters

  • Sensor variance. Variance of the error of the sensor in meters per second squared.

  • Input variable. It indicates the variable that contains the information from the sensor.

  • Tilt limits. The sensor measures the variable in a direction perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the platform, so when it is tilted the reading will not be reliable. This option allows the definition of a tilt limit, so that if the limit is reached, the sensor reading will be discarded.

  • Speed limits. Defines the limits of the speed measured by the sensor.
