Position estimation using inertial sensor (dead reckoning)

30 views (last 30 days)
Is there a filter that takes in 6DOF/9DOF IMU data and outputs position and orientation without requring GPS?

Hi Swapril
What your are trying to do is called “dead reckoning” and is not generally recommended with just an accelerometer and gyroscope. There are various detailed descriptions about it on the web, but NXP’s sensor fusion manual describes an experiment in section 2.8 here. If you have other non-GPS sensors that measure position, it’s possible to use the correct method on one of the insfilters to achieve your goal.
