INDOOR NAVIGATION USING

ACCELEROMETER AND MAGNETOMETER

ABSTRACT

This project will create a navigation system based on dead reckoning using an
accelerometer and a magnetometer. There have previously been several studies made on
navigation with accelerometers, magnetometers (electronic compass) and gyros. With these
three components it is possible to do positioning and dierent kinds of movement analyses.
There are several methods for detection of movement and calculation of position. To achieve
greater accuracy in these applications, gyros are often used. Compared to magnetometers and
accelerometer gyros consumes a lot of power. In an embedded system with limited power
supplies from a battery this may be unacceptable.
