Teacher: Skaloud Jan

Language: English

Withdrawal: It is not allowed to withdraw from this subject after the registration deadline.


Summary

Determination of spatial orientation (i.e. position, velocity, attitude) via integration of inertial sensors with satellite positioning. Prerequisite for many applications related to remote sensing, environmental monitoring, mobile mapping, robotics, space exploration, smart-phone navigation, etc.

Content

Keywords

Inertial sensors, platform orientation, sensor integration, Kalman Filtering, estimation, INS/GNSS, navigation

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

Advanced satellite positioning, statistics, adjustment of observations

Important concepts to start the course

basic signal processing, random processes, programmation in Matlab

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Manipulate precise as well as low-cost inertial instruments.
  • Compute initial orientation from a real data.
  • Integrate inertial signals via simulations.
  • Predict orientation performance via covariance propagation.
  • Construct a model for a gyroscope or accelerometer.
  • Develop dynamic models for a particular scenario.
  • Implement Kalman Filter.

Transversal skills

  • Collect data.
  • Make an oral presentation.
  • Use both general and domain specific IT resources and tools

Teaching methods

Ex cathedra, exercises (part. in computer room), demonstrations

Expected student activities

Active participation in the course and lab assignments, programmation of algoritms and self-control (debugging), study and presentation of one inertial-sensor technology .

Assessment methods

Continuous control, 3 tests at the following dates:

- 9th October 2020

- 13th November 2020

- 18th December 2020

Resources

Bibliography

Recommended literature via Moodle.
