Research Talk: Particle Filters for Inertial Navigation, Oliver Woodman

Inertial measurement units offer the opportunity for mobile devices to estimate their physical state independently. Recent advances in MEMS technologies have made such units smaller and cheaper, but also more prone to error.

Particle filters can be used to model the uncertainty which arises in inertial systems, as well as reducing the total error incurred through the fusion of additional measurements and the use of domain specific constraints.

This talk will present a generic particle filter framework for inertial navigation. The framework is tested by applying it to the problem of pedestrian tracking, using a foot mounted inertial measurement unit.
