The rotation matrix is an effective tool to analyze the transformation between two coordinate frames independent of the relative motion of these frames. This linear transformation has been rigorously studied and plays an important part in the study of mechanical systems [1]. In the past few decades, the problem of attitude estimation of rigid bodies has been explored quite deeply in the context of attitude control [2,3]. Recently, with the study on UAVs [4], the requirement for practical and reliable implementations of attitude estimation have gained importance.
