Tutorial at the IEEE CONECCT conference

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

Dur­ing the third week of Jan­u­ary some of us attended the IEEE CONECCT con­fer­ence. Thereat Isaac Skog and John-Olof Nils­son gave a tuto­r­ial on pedes­trian track­ing by means of foot-mounted iner­tial sen­sors and on coop­er­a­tive local­iza­tion. Too late to attend but once we have hade time to clean out exces­sively large video-clips from the pre­sen­ta­tions we will try to upload them here.

The peo­ple at IISc has recently pub­lished the paper Data Fusion of Dual Foot-Mounted INS to Reduce the Sys­tem­atic Head­ing Drift (See Pub­li­ca­tions) and we had a small bench­mark test com­par­ing the solu­tion to the sen­sor fusion solu­tions ear­lier devel­oped at KTH. Bench­mark tests going on:
