This group is not part of the GNU Project.

The project is unmaintained.

Stribog will implement a platform for measuring user orientation relative to sides of world: azimuth, pitch and roll. the hardware includes a 3-axis magnetoresistive compass, a tilt sensor based on accelerometer ICs and a microcontroller to manage all.

The project consists of hardware and software sections, both under the GPL.

The hardware section includes all information needed for reproducing the system, i.e. schematics, boards layout in the form that most board manufacturers accept and so on. this is implemented using GPLd packages gEDA ( and pcb (

The hardware is based on Honeywell magnetoresistive sensors, the most precise relatively low-cost magnetic sensors, Analog Devices MMIC accelerometers and optionally Analog Devices angular rate sensors. the microcontroller is a Philips ARM-based LPC2138. all these are expected to show about 1-degree precision.

It is also planned to use the platform motion data obtained from a GPS sensor.

The software will include uC program, which should solve necessary navigation tasks, and utilities to connect to GNU/Linux PC host. most likely the uC part will run without any OS. currently it uses only one external library (libgcc.a). stribog software is written in C and translated with GNU tools.

Auxiliary boards base on AVR microcontrollers. the programs running
on them are developped with AVR-libc/GCC/Binutils toolchain.

This is a maintainance release of the `stable' release series,
we made it just before forking the 0.1 release series from

stribog-0.0.0 released
     posted by ineiev, Mon 13 Oct 2008 11:25:18 AM UTC

This is another alpha release.

The tarball together with PGP signagure is available at

Many a step towards usability has been made since the previous release:
autoconfiscating whole project,
adding more detailed texinfo documentation,
eliminating stupid bugs,
moving host command line tools behaviour to GNU standards,
migrating to Git to enumerate the most eminent ones.

stribog: migrating to GIT
     posted by ineiev, Thu 14 Feb 2008 12:39:38 PM UTC

Today the sources CVS tree was imported to GIT. Since now the project will use GIT because it is more flexible and convenient than CVS. the CVS sources will not be updated any more.

New Year release

One more alpha release. the GERBER files were generated with the new version of PCB, which don't use bold commands.

Savannah releases are now managed through sftp, which is a gorgeous  improvement (thanks a million to the supporters). I deleted the files of previous release which I carelessly duplicated.
