Fused Angles / Tilt Phase Space

Fused angles, like quaternions and rotation matrices, are a way of representing 3D rotations. They split up a rotation into three main components, fused yaw, fused pitch and fused roll, and give insight into how a body is rotated in each of the three major planes. Fused angles were developed in the context of balance, and far surpass Euler angles for this purpose, but have since found numerous other applications. The tilt phase space is similarly a novel way of representing 3D rotations, and is to rotations what fused angles is to orientations.

Introduction to Fused Angles: Fused Angles Reference Manual [BIB]
The Tilt Phase Space: Tilt Rotations and the Tilt Phase Space [BIB]
Why not Euler Angles? Fused angles vs. Euler angles [BIB]

All of the gait, kicking, fall protection and attitude estimation modules in the official igus Humanoid Open Platform software rely on the concept of fused angles and/or the tilt phase space.
