Mems-Based Integrated Navigationby Priyanka Aggarwal
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Specifically focused on the use of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) for navigation of land vehicles, this volume both attempts to fill large gaps in the literature and focuses on the underlying theory. These relatively new, low-cost inertial sensors are gaining increasing use and their initial alignment and possible errors in use receive attention. It also includes forays into artificial neural networks and particle fibers. The authors all met while pursuing doctoral degrees at the University of Calgary, with Dr. El-Sheimy as their primary professor. Includes an appendix offering specific equations for extended Kalman filtering (EKF) implementation. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Due to the micro-scale size and low power consumption of Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are now being utilized in a variety of fields. This leading-edge resource focuses on the application of MEMS inertial sensors to navigation systems. The book explains how to minimize cost by adding and removing inertial sensors. Moreover, this practical reference presents various integration strategies with examples from real field tests. From an introduction to MEMS navigation related applications to special topics on Alignment for MEMS-Based Navigation to discussions on the Extended Kalman Filter, this comprehensive book covers a wide range of critical topics in this fast-growing area.
