  • Vehicle dynamic model-based integrated navigation system for land vehicles

    This paper examines the significant role played by vehicle dynamic model and its impact on the performance increase of inertial navigation systems for land vehicles. The pure inertial navigation system is suffered from the time relevant drifts of all navigation parameters that cannot be chosen as the sole navigation system for the land vehicles. And the complementary role played by the vehicle dynamic model should be studied thoroughly that it can be integrated to an inertial navigation system to compose an autonomous navigation system for land vehicles. This kind of navigation systems take advantage of the vehicle dynamic model to build a navigation filter whose observation information comes from the model outputs. It is concerned that the relationship between the body frame velocity reference information and the observability of the filter error state is vital to the effect of increasing navigation accuracy. According to the observability analysis, a series of land vehicle maneuver trajectories are helpful to increase the observability degree of some error states. Experiments were carried in a close loop trajectory. It is shown from the results that changing land vehicle's attitude angle yaw is helpful for eliminating the estimate errors of the velocity. And the position error can also be compensated after the velocity error is estimated correctly.

  • Motion Context Adaptive Fusion of Inertial and Visual Pedestrian Navigation

    We use motion context recognition to enhance the result of our infrastructure- free indoor navigation algorithm. Target applications are difficult navigation scenarios such as first responder, rescue, and tactical applications. Our navigation algorithm uses inertial navigation and visual navigation fusion. Random Forest classifier algorithm is taught with training data from Inertial Measurement Unit and visual navigation data to classify between walking, running and climbing. This information is used both in pedestrian navigation to do stationarity detection with adaptive threshold and in particle filter fusion to exclude visual data from during climbing. Methods are evaluated in an indoor navigation test where person wearing tactical equipment moves through a building. Results show improvement of positioning accuracy based on loop closure error on the test track especially when the movement is fast paced. The loop closure error was reduced on average 4 % in two tests when movement was slow and 14 % when movement was fast.

  • Real-time estimation of atmospheric disturbance for unmanned helicopter based on multi-source navigation data

    In order to improve the position control precision of unmanned helicopter in complex air-flow field, it is necessary to obtain the real-time and high- accuracy atmospheric disturbance information by means of measurement or estimation, which is used to compensate the disturbance in real-time. A scheme of air disturbance data estimation for Unmanned Helicopter based on multi- source navigation data fusion is proposed in this paper. The information obtained by navigation system of the unmanned helicopter is used to establish the functional relationship between navigation data and atmospheric parameters. In addition, the multi-source information fusion algorithm is researched to achieve a real-time estimation of wind field information of unmanned helicopter. In order to validate the effectiveness of the proposed atmospheric disturbance data estimation method for unmanned helicopter, we design a simulation system which can repeat the flight path and the different flight state of unmanned helicopter. It can also simulate the disturbance of different wind fields to navigation system and the estimation process of air disturbance information to verify the proposed algorithm. The results show that the designed method can effectively estimate atmospheric disturbance information, and has wonderful performance with high precision, favorable stability and robustness. The Navigation Research Center (NRC) of Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (http://nrc.nuaa.edu.cn) is engaged in the research of navigation technology, and has done a series of research on all source information fusion. Up to now, a great deal of achievement has been made in the following fields: Strap-down Inertial Navigation System, Inertial Integrated Navigation System, Global Satellite Positioning System, Terrain Aided Navigation System, Fault-Tolerant Technique of Multi Inertial Navigation Subsystem, Modern Optimization Filtering Theory, Precision Measurement System and so on.

  • Integration of inertial and satellite navigation systems with using corrective circuits and filtering

  • On-line calibration method of SINS/DVL integrated navigation system

    In this paper, the question of integrated navigation system calibration has been researched. Based on the principle of DVL velocity measurement, we analyzed the error source, and constructed the DVL error model based on the scale factor and misalignment angle between SINS and DVL. Based on the DVL error model and the SINS navigation error model, an integrated navigation system model has been established. And a corresponding Kalman filter model has been designed using the speed error as the observation. The observability analysis approach was used to analyze the observability of SINS/DVL integrated navigation system and the estimation of the misalignment angle and scale factor. It is verified the correctness of this method by digital simulation. The sufficient condition which the SINS/DVL integrated navigation system needs has been deduce in mathematics. The main conclusions are presented as following: the scale factor is observable when the carrier takes a movement with constant attitude and time-varying special force. And if the yaw- direction misalignment angle is only considered and the upward velocity is zero, the yaw-direction misalignment angle is observable when the carrier takes a linear movement with constant velocity. And the misalignment angles are observable when the carrier takes a movement with constant attitude and time-varying special force and linearly independent derivatives of special force for different time. Then, a method of implementing on-line calibration which contains of three types of exercise has been designed. Finally, the on- line calibration method provided in this paper was used to verify by the vessel tests. The experiment results shows that the SINS/DVL integrated on- line calibration method could effectively estimate the required all kinds of error sources. The error compensation can effectively suppress the accumulation of SINS error and improve the positioning accuracy of the SINS/DVL integrated navigation system. The finally positioning accuracy is better than 0.75%d.

  • SINS/USBL integrated navigation fault-tolerant method with chi-square test

    Precision and reliability are the most important standards to decide the capability of navigation system. The strapdown inertial navigation system (SINS) provides autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) attitude, velocity and position information continuously when the task and mission are carried out in the complex marine environment. It has the advantages of high positioning accuracy in short-term, but its position error also diverges with time. The position error of ultra short baseline (USBL) is bounded within operating range. Because of its small array size, easy to install, etc., it has a wide applications in marine development. According to the characteristic of the SINS and USBL, a SINS/USBL integrated navigation fault-tolerant method with chi-square test is presented. Experiments on Qiandao Lake show that the proposed method is available.

  • Robust position and velocity estimation methods in integrated navigation systems for inland water applications

    As the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are intensively used as main source of Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) information for maritime and inland water navigation, it becomes increasingly important to ensure the reliability of GNSS-based navigation solutions for challenging environments. Although an intensive work has been done in developing GNSS Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring (RAIM) algorithms, a reliable procedure to mitigate multiple simultaneous outliers is still lacking. The presented work evaluates the performance of several methods for multiple outlier mitigation based on robust estimation framework and compares them to the performance of state-of-the-art RAIM methods. The relevant methods include M-estimation, S-estimation, LMS and RANSAC-based approaches as well as corresponding modifications for C/N0-based weighting schemes. The snapshot positioning methods are also tested within the quaternion-based Cubature Quadrature Kalman filter for integrated inertial/GNSS solution. The presented schemes are evaluated using real measurement data from challenging inland water scenarios with multiple bridges and a waterway lock. The initial results are encouraging and clearly indicate the potential of the discussed methods both for classical snapshot solutions as well for the methods with complementary sensors.
