The module(s)


The cur­rent gen­er­a­tion of the foot-mounted INS imple­men­ta­tion (mod­ule) seen above is described in the paper

John-Olof Nils­son, Amit K Gupta, and Peter Hän­del. Foot-mounted iner­tial nav­i­ga­tion made easy ‚ In proc. IPIN 2014, Oct. 28–30, 2014.

This paper is the best and most com­plete gen­eral descrip­tion of the mod­ules. Fur­ther, descrip­tions of var­i­ous aspects of the mod­ules is also found in the other pub­li­ca­tions in the Pub­li­ca­tions section.


From a user per­spec­tive, the mod­ule may be seen as a step mea­sure­ment device. As illus­trated above, it will mea­sure the dis­place­ment and head­ing change over each step and send this to an appli­ca­tion plat­form. Here they can be summed up to track the user.
