GNSS, Inertial, and Multisensor Integrated Navigation Systems, 2nd Ed.
Paul D. Groves
This edition of Principles of GNSS, Inertial, and Multisensor Integrated Navigation Systems, by Paul Groves combines a comprehensive review of the latest navigation and positioning technologies with clear explanations of their underlying principles and details on how to integrate technologies for maximum accuracy and reliability.
Global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), inertial navigation, terrestrial radio positioning, odometry, pedestrian dead reckoning, magnetic heading determination, image-based navigation, and map matching are explained alongside a host of other technologies suitable for air, land, sea, underwater, indoor, and space navigation and positioning. As well as providing in-depth coverage on INS/GNSS and multisensory integration, this book describes fault detection and integrity monitoring, discusses design and testing, and incorporates the latest thinking on context-dependent and cooperative positioning.
When you purchase this book, we will supply you with a link to download the materials that were previously supplied by the publisher on a DVD, which includes basic MATLAB INS/GNSS simulation software, extensive appendices, worked examples, and problems!
This book provides expert guidance for engineers, researchers, educators, and students in navigation and positioning. It helps readers —
- Design, develop and debug INS/GNSS, and multisensor integrated navigation systems;
- Selects the right combination of technology and sensors to meet the requirements of particular navigation or positioning applications; and
- Make more informed engineering and application decisions by better understanding the characteristics, performance, and errors of different position technologies.
