Using Picaxe with an IMU

Has anyone used an IMU read by a Picaxe processor for use in attitude control? Could be used in an ROV or drone craft. I wasn't sure you could do the Kalman filtering or attitude control math in Picaxe. I have an ROV design that I'm working out, but I'm concerned about getting far down the road and finding out the Picaxe won't be able to handle it....

Math is not Picaxe's strong suit...

  • The biggest anything you can work with is a word
  • No floats of any kind --not even defined as a constant at the start
  • No negitive numbers

  I dunno...
