Steering and Stabilization of Symbols of a Helmet Mounted
Display by a Prediction Method Based on Kalman Filtering
Master Thesis, Report UPTEC 95046E, 27 pp,
This report studies the possibility to improve the
presentation of symbols on a helmet mounted display.
Time lags in the flight simulator system are examined.
To compensate for time lags, a head movement predictor
based on a Kalman filter is used.
Tests in the simulator and analyses in Matlab show the
ability of the predictor to follow a head movement.
The predictor has been implemented in the simulator
and the filter parameters in the tracker system
have been adjusted to reduce the noise sensitivity.
