You are looking for a quaternion q, such that qjq'=n, where n is the imaginary unit quaternion representing the axis of the object. This has a standard solution in terms of the product jn, essentially the square root. If jn=c+s*e, e imaginary unit, c²+s²=1, s>=0 then q = sqrt(0.5*(1+c)) +...

You can apply a Kalman filter to accelerometer data, it's a powerful technique though and there are lots of ways to do it wrong. If your goal is to learn about the filter then go for it - the discussion here might be helpful. If you just want to smooth...

That Wikipedia article is biased. From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quaternions_and_spatial_rotation#Advantages_of_quaternions as of Apr 18, 2014: When composing several rotations on a computer, rounding errors necessarily accumulate. A quaternion that’s slightly off still represents a rotation after being normalised: a matrix that’s slightly off may not be orthogonal anymore and is harder to convert...

At the end of the day, I want my object (Polygon in SharpGL terms) to rotate about its own axes (or about the "world" axes, but be consistent). I think this answer you put in your question is somehow explaining the situation. In order to perform rotation around object...

rotation,directx-11,matrix-multiplication,quaternions

Your code XMVECTOR quaternion = XMVectorSet(random_x, random_y, 0); is not creating a valid quaternion. First, if you did not set the w component to 1, then the 4-vector quaternion doesn't actually represent a 3D rotation. Second, a quaternion's vector components are not Euler angles. You want to use XMQuaternionRotationRollPitchYaw which...

another way to do this is to just make the cylinder LookAt(p2) if p2 is a vector.

The problem is the way that you are accumulating rotations. This would be the same whether you use quaternions or matrices. Combining a rotation representing pitch and yaw with another will introduce roll. By far the easiest way to implement an FPS camera is to simply accumulate changes to the...

The error is in the usage of Quaternion.LookRotation. The function takes two Vector3 as input which are a forward direction in world space (and an optional up vector - default Vector3.up), and returns a Quaternion representing the orientation of such a reference frame. You are instead supply a world space...

Your matrix: matrix (a,b,c): a : 0.707107 0.000000 0.707107 b : 0.000000 -1.000000 0.000000 c : -0.707107 0.000000 0.707107 is orthogonal but it is not a rotation matrix. A rotation matrix has determinant 1; your matrix has determinant -1 and is thus an improper rotation. I think your code is...

See the answer to this question. I have a feeling what you are trying to implement is the Quaternion-Vector rotation operation. There are many different, obscure combinations of Quaternion conventions that can ruin your day (see this paper). if your rotation operation is not working try: V_inertial = q (x)...

To track a resting orientation, you'll need to keep track of the first CMAttitude you sample. Then you can use multiplyByInverseOfAttitude: to get the difference between that attitude and the current one each time you sample. (If you're already working with quaternions due to filtering, you can perform the equivalent...

From what I understood of your question you have two particles P1 and P2 that have a rigid transformation between them (at all times the relative position and relative orientation between P1 and P2 are constant). The answer is similar to this answer however it is a bit different. Lets...

Your code is using Euler angles (axis-aligned rotations). The wiggles and jumps are because Euler angles are a bad parameterization of the space of 3D rotations.

What you're looking for is a low pass filter — a way to separate the high frequency signals in a sensor input (noise, random jiggling) from the low frequency ones (deliberate user motion). The typical formula for a real-time filter goes like this: newValue = (sampledValue * factor) + (lastValue...

You have two options. You can still use the XMQuaternionToAxisAngle() function, and it'll use an axis other than the cardinal axes. Any rotation can be represented as a single angle rotating around a given axis. On the other hand, if you really need to get it as Euler angles, there's...

Isn't this just as simple as exchanging the order of the factors in the quaternion product? A unit quaternion q transforms a vector v in local coordinates to the rotated vector q*v*q' in global coordinates.

The issue I discovered was with using: _target.localEulerAngles.y as a base. This is because localEulerAngels only go from 0 to 360 while running. In the editor, it isn't clamped. When running, it is clamped. This changes things dramatically because initially at rotation 0, if you move left, it loops to...

One way of looking at the top 3x3 portion of a matrix is that it's just a description of the basis vectors as, if you were to apply one to a point: [A D G] [x] [A*x + D*y + G*z] [A] [D] [G] [B E H] [y] = [B*x...

The quaternions -q and q are different; however, the rotations represented by the two quaternions are identical. This phenomenon is usually described by saying quaternions provide a double cover of the rotation group SO(3). The algebra to see this is very simple: given a vector represented by quaternion p, and...

I interpret it the way that the unit vector of the Z axis (in local coordinates) is your forward pointing vector?

If you're working with the Oculus SDK Matrix4 class, you can easily use the Matrix4::ToEulerAngles() method. If you're working with another class then you should look for a method in that class that does something similar.

The most perfect answer has come to me after a lot of googling and experimentation: Disregard original ideas, acquire matrices! B.Matrix * Invert(A.Matrix) is stored as a relative marker, And then to restore, simply replace B's matrix with relative * A.MATRIX. This perfectly adjusts both rotation and position in one...

For update of orientation , you require to multiply current orientation by delta rotation. This is comparable expensive operation with axis angle conversion. Common way to represent angular velocity is "exponential map"m the 3d vector parallel with rotation axis and magnitude of rotation velocity (radians per second). The conversion to...
