Teaching “Basic Statistics” with sensor data from ICAROS

In this activity students learn the basic notions and terms of statistics such as: sample, distribution of values, sampling, average/mean value, variance, standard deviation etc. They use ICAROS’ on-board sensors to collect data in various conditions, they then analyze them and present their findings. The sensors at the Flight Control Board are the gyroscope, the accelerometer and the barometer/altimeter. For Naze32 FCB the sensors can be accessed through the Baseflight-Configurator software and their data can be logged and saved as .csv (comma separated values) files. The .csv files can then be read with common spreadsheet software like Excel, OpenOffice etc.
