Overview[ edit ] Inertial navigation is a self-contained navigation technique in which measurements provided by accelerometers and gyroscopes are used to track the position and orientation of an object relative to a known starting point, orientation and velocity. Inertial measurement units IMUs typically contain three orthogonal rate-gyroscopes and three orthogonal accelerometers, measuring angular velocity and linear acceleration respectively. By processing signals from these devices it is possible to track the position and orientation of a device. Inertial navigation is used in a wide range of applications including the navigation of aircraft, tactical and strategic missiles, spacecraft, submarines and ships. It is also embedded in the mostly nowadays mobile phone for purpose of mobile phone location and tracking [4] [5]. Recent advances in the construction of microelectromechanical systems MEMS have made it possible to manufacture small and light inertial navigation systems.

Library of Congress Catalog Card Number: ISBN X Printed in the United States of America To the memory of ANNE Foreword Although the technique of inertial guidance can be said to have originated more than sixty years ago with the appearance of the gyrocompass, it did not attain full navigational status until the impetus of technology after World War I1 made it practical as well as feasible. During this period the basic inertial components-gyroscopes and accelerometers-remained essentially the same but continually improved in performance. Extensive studies led to a fairly complete understanding of the theory of inertial systems. Improve- ment both in inertial components and in the associated signal-processing equipment led from systems with a volume of over a cubic yard to those with less than a cubic foot.
