Jakel ,Honeywell; D. Gebre-Egziabher, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities   Abstract: A method for increasing the accuracy of the heading estimate in IMU-based personal navigation system will be discussed. Heading estimation without use or emittance of any external electromagnetic signals for reference is a critical but challenging component of pedestrian dead reckoning navigation systems. In the environments where these systems are normally used, electromagnetic signals may be unavailable. custodia iphone outlet Even when available, these signals may be intentionally or inadvertently corrupted for an extended period of time. custodia samsung s8 In such environments, the navigation system must determine initial heading through gyro-compassing or using information from other sensors such as magnetometers or radio frequency multilateration systems. iphone 7 custodia outlet Subsequently, these external measurements may be used periodically to arrest the heading drift when signal conditions and trajectory allow it. Due to the size, weight, power, and cost constraints imposed on a pedestrian navigation systems as well as current IMU performance limitations, the gyroscopes used to determine heading have significant drift. To deal with this drift problem without having to rely on information external to the navigator, the use of human motion models as constraints has been proposed. cover samsung custodia For example, one such motion model used as a constraint predicts the onset of turning motion of the pedestrian by thresholding the outputs of the yaw gyroscope. For example, unless a significant yaw rate is detected, the user is assumed to be moving in a straight line. samsung custodia outlet This gyroscope is also integrated to determine the change in angle over the period of turning, such constraints delay the open loop gyro integration time onset which increases the accumulated drift, especially for sudden turns, which can occur during indoor navigation. The use of the trunk roll angle and angular rate are presented as additional signals used to predict the onset of pedestrian turning motion. The signature of the trunk roll motion relative to foot and body reorientation is described. Integration of the trunk roll motion based turning prediction method with existing yaw threshold methods is described and analyzed. Experimental data from ten subjects was captured in a gait laboratory, where a Vicon motion tracking unit is used for validation. In these experiments the subjects were instrumented with five low cost IMU units; one on the right foot, one on the right ankle, one on the right thigh, one on the lower back and one on the chest. The outputs of the foot-mounted IMUs are used with Zero Velocity Updates (ZUPTs) to determine the subject’s gross body motion. The torso mounted IMUs are used to sense upper body motion and this information is used in activating the trunk-roll constraint. The analysis of experimental data demonstrates that trunk rolling motion precedes heading change and can be used together with yaw rate threshold methods to predict the onset of a turning motion.

Pelgrum Title: High-Performance Positioning, Navigation, and Timing When GPS is Not Available Abstract: The American GPS system has made ultra-precise Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) virtually ubiquitous, affordable, and available worldwide to everyone. And satellite navigation is only getting better with the other existing and upcoming Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS): GLONASS (Russia), Galileo (Europe), Beidou/Compass (China), QZSS (Japan), and IRNSS (India). iphone cover outlet The unsurpassed performance of GNSS and its low user cost has fueled a wide range of applications, such as Personal Navigation Devices (PND) in cars, Automatic Identification System (AIS) for shipping, and Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) for aviation. And not to forget GNSS time and frequency that is used for the synchronization of, for example, electrical power grids, communication systems, and financial networks. With the growing number of GNSS-PNT applications there is also an increasing dependency: GNSS has become part of the world’s critical infrastructure, with significant safety, environmental, and economical impact associated with the unavailability or failure of GPS or other GNSS. The low received signal power, intrinsic to satellite systems, makes GNSS vulnerable to jamming and spoofing. Furthermore, solar events can cause significant ionosphere scintillation and thereby hinder acquisition and tracking of the L-band GNSS signals. Over the past decade, there has been a significant and ongoing effort to improve the robustness of PNT: GNSS receiver and satellite technology have been improved, and GNSS has been integrated with a variety of sensors. Examples of multi-sensor integration are the combination of GNSS with inertial, barometric, vision, LIDAR, radar, and WIFI-based navigation solutions. All these new developments make you almost forget we navigated long before GPS was even conceived. Mariners navigated using celestial methods, and with systems such as Loran, Decca, and Omega. coque iphone x Aviators used, and often still use, NDB, VOR, DME, and Loran. This presentation focuses on the legacy radio navigation systems Loran-C (100 kHz) and DME/N (1 GHz), their working principles, performance, past and current usage, and their potential for future applications. Loran-C’s legacy position performance of 0.25 nmi and DME/N’s ranging performance of 0.2 nmi are no match for most of today’s stringent performance requirements, which necessitates system enhancements. The maritime “Harbor Entrance and Approach” (HEA) procedure, for example, requires 8-20 m 95% positioning accuracy. A completely overhauled Loran-C system called “eLoran” makes this possible with modern solid-state transmitters, DSP receiver technology, novel receiver antenna design, and compensation of propagation-induced errors using differential corrections and ASF correction maps. HEA eLoran measurements in Tampa Bay Florida in 2004 demonstrated better-than 10 meter accuracy. Now, almost a decade later, Great Britain is rolling out eLoran services for all their major harbors. This is one of the examples of eLoran technology and applications that will be presented, together with land-mobile, maritime, and airborne measurement results. The aviation community faces a challenge similar to that of the maritime community: GPS has enabled enhanced procedures at low cost, but how to protect against GPS outages? FAA’s Alternative Positioning, Navigation, and Time (APNT) program is tasked with that challenge. One of the candidate architectures is the Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) system. The legacy DME/N system is only specified to 0.2 nmi ranging performance, with DME/DME/IRU specified to the RNAV 1 level (approximately 1610m 95% positioning performance). cover shop online The APNT target performance is RNP 0.3, or 370 m 95%, with integrity. Various techniques are under consideration to improve DME’s performance such as upgraded, state-of-the-art ground-station and avionics equipment. soldes coque iphone More revolutionary performance enhancements are obtained by novel techniques such as DME carrier phase, beat signal, and pulse modulation and TOA determination techniques. A brief overview of these techniques will be presented accompanied by flight test results and an outlook on the future of the system. Biography: Dr. Wouter J. Pelgrum is an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at Ohio University where he teaches electronic navigation-related courses. His research programs include GNSS, Inertial, DME, Loran, Time and Frequency transfer, integrated navigation systems, and advanced ground/flight test instrumentation systems. Prior to joining Ohio University in 2009, Wouter worked in private industry where he contributed to the development of an integrated GPS-eLoran receiver and antenna. From 2006 until 2008, Wouter operated his own company specializing in navigation-related research and consulting. Presenter: Mr. Hamid Mokhtarzadeh Title: Data Fusion when Correlation Matters Abstract: The problem of fusing two or more uncertain quantities arises in aerospace applications. When the correlation between the quantities are zero (or known), the Kalman filter (or an alternative formulation) is an effective fusion algorithm. However, some amount of correlation is common, and if left unrestricted, this correlation could lead to filter divergence. In this talk I describe scenarios where handling correlation is important. coque iphone 7 This is followed by the presentation of a fusion technique, known as covariance intersection, for handling unknown correlation. huawei custodia Finally, an automotive application simulation is used to demonstrate the performance of the filters.

One drawback of physical redundancy is the increased size, cost, weight, and power requirements. Some aircraft, e.g. custodia outlet samsung s8 UAVs, cannot be designed to meet the conflicting design requirements imposed by the use of physical redundancy for reliability. coque iphone Model-based fault detection provides an alternative means to achieve high levels of reliability without using redundant physical hardware. coque iphone x These analytical methods detect faults using dynamic models to relate the behavior of various subsystems and sensor measurements. coque iphone xr Systems that use analytical redundancy must also demonstrate the required levels of reliability to certification authorities. A major obstacle to the use of analytical fault detection in aerospace systems is the lack of appropriate tools to analyze and certify the performance of these systems.

Pairing the three-axis magnetometer measurements with position information creates a magnetic field map containing the variation and localized perturbations in Earth’s magnetic field as a function of position. For navigation solutions, a particle filter uses the three-axis magnetometer measurements to produce road-level navigation exploring three suburban environments. The results demonstrate navigation using magnetic field variations in large vehicles is viable and achieves good performance for road-level navigation in suburban areas. Additionally, I will use this system as an example of the need to develop improved methods for generating what I call “self-building world models”–that is, to have the capability of efficiently generating maps of natural features (such as the magnetic field) without the need for a large-scale measurement campaign.

The results of these signal interactions with the ionosphere are highly variable signal group delays and carrier advances, deep signal amplitude fading, and random carrier phase fluctuations. custodia samsung s8 While the group delay and carrier advances cause GPS range measurement errors which cannot be totally eliminated by the current state-of-the-art receivers, the signal amplitude fading and carrier phase fluctuations, collectively referred to as ionospheric scintillations, may result in receiver loss-of-lock of satellite signals. These ionosphere effects pose a serious challenge for applications that require continuous and high accuracy measurements. In this presentation, I will focus on two of our current research efforts in ionosphere effects. iphone cover outlet The first effort aims to assess the higher order ionosphere error in GPS receiver range measurements and to characterize the higher order error temporal and spatial structure. The second study concerns the establishment of a multi-constellation, multi-band GNSS receiver array in Alaska to collect GNSS signals under both natural and controlled ionospheric scintillation conditions, and the development of robust GPS receiver algorithms for the estimation of satellite signal parameters. Technical approaches, recent findings, and significance of both projects will be discussed in the presentation.
