Using 9DOF Sensor Stick EKF

Hi, I am using a 9DOF Sensor Stick . 9DOF Razor has a dedicated controller to compute orientation whereas I am only getting raw sensor data from 9 DOF Sensor Stick. I am interfacing the 9DOF Sensor stick with an Arduino Mega which also shares its resources interfacing with encoders, motor drive commands and pan-tilt servos. It appears that implementation of DCM or kalman filter on the Arduino is exhausting its resources. Unfortunately, I only have on Arduino. Is it possible use the 9DOF Sensor Stick with raw sensor readings from it? Based on , I expect the answer is NO. Please correct me, if I am wrong. Could you please suggest pointers on how to integrate this sensor stick into robot_pose_ekf?

Thanks in advance, B

You can publish the raw data to ROS and use the AHRS (madgwick's filter) in imu_tools to process the data on the PC side.
