Dead reckoning

View this topic in
In navigation, dead reckoning (also ded reckoning or DR) is the process of calculating one's current position by using a previously determined position, or fix, and advancing that position based upon known or estimated speeds over elapsed time, and course. While traditional methods of dead reckoning are no longer considered primary means of navigation, modern inertial navigation systems, which also depend upon dead reckoning, are very widely used.

Mobile robot localization in dynamic environments using dead reckoning and evidence grids

B. Yamauchi Proceedings of IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, 1996

Dead reckoning provides a simple way to keep track of a mobile robot's location. However, due to slippage between the robot's wheels and the underlying surface, this position estimate accumulates errors over time. In this paper, we introduce a method for correcting dead reckoning errors by matching evidence grids constructed at different times. A hill-climbing algorithm is used to search ...


An automatic calibration method for a multisensor system: application to a mobile robot localization system

H. -J. Von der Hardt; R. Husson; D. Wolf Proceedings. 1998 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (Cat. No.98CH36146), 1998

This paper describes an automatic calibration method for a multisensor system. Redundancy of sensor measurements is exploited in order to identify a priori unknown system parameters. The calibration method presented does not need any external reference, but is only based on constraint functions which describe the relations existing between the different sensor outputs. An application to a mobile robot dead ...


A method for dead reckoning parameter correction in pedestrian navigation system

R. Jirawimut; P. Ptasinski; V. Garaj; F. Cecelja; W. Balachandran IMTC 2001. Proceedings of the 18th IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference. Rediscovering Measurement in the Age of Informatics (Cat. No.01CH 37188), 2001

This paper presents a method for correcting dead reckoning parameters, which are heading and step size, for a pedestrian navigation system. In this method, the compass bias error and the step size error can be estimated during the period that the GPS signal is available. The errors are used for correcting those parameters to improve the accuracy of position determination ...


Mobile robot localization in dynamic environments using places recognition

O. Aycard; P. Laroche; F. Charpillet Proceedings. 1998 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (Cat. No.98CH36146), 1998

We present a new method to localize a mobile robot in dynamic environments. This method is based on place recognition, and a match between places recognized and the sequence of places that the mobile robot is able to see during a run from an initial place to an ending place. Our method gives a coarse idea of the robot's position ...

Liqiang Xu; Xingchuan Liu; Sheng Zhang; Xiaokang Lin 2010 International Conference On Computer Design and Applications, 2010

Reliable and accurate vehicle position information is important for autonomous systems. The increased popularity of wireless networks has enabled the development of positioning techniques that rely on WLAN signal strength. Fingerprint architecture is one of the most viable solutions for Received Signal Strength (RSS)-based positioning. The most challenging aspect of the fingerprint based method is to formulate a distance calculation ...

  • Applications to Navigation

    There are five basic forms of navigation: pilotage; dead reckoning; celestial navigation; radio navigation; and inertial navigation. This chapter is about applications of Kalman filtering in solving the navigation problem, and especially combinations of the last two methods in the list above. The development of low cost receivers for global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) and low cost micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technologies for inertial navigation systems (INS) have revolutionized the potential cost/performance ratios for high accuracy navigation. The focus of the chapter is on the design and implementation of Kalman filters for these applications, including design of models used with the associated Riccati equations for predicting the performance of potential sensor system designs. These include examples of Kalman filter models for GNSS and INS errors, and practical Kalman filter implementation architectures for integrated navigation solutions.
