Revision history [back]

If you just use the IMU you' re double integrating linear accelerations to come up with position and integrating angular rates to come up with orientation. Unbounded and quick drift is to be expected in such a situation unless you use really expensive sensors (such as those used in aircraft). It thus is not really surprising that significant drift is observed.
