United States Patent Application

View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
Embodiments are directed towards a wave measuring electronics device that is integrated within a buoy and the buoy is moored in an ocean. The wave measurement device performs a computer-implemented method for estimating wave motion, including receiving 3D sensor data from each of an accelerometer and a gyroscope, determining, an absolute orientation of the buoy based on said 3D sensor data; and estimating, the true earth acceleration of the buoy over a specified time interval.
