Analysis of vision aided inertial navigation systems

Yuksel, Yigiter
Kaygisiz, H. Burak
We propose in this paper a method to integrate inertial navigation systems with electro optic imaging devices. Our method is based on updating the inertial navigation system in a Kalman filter structure using line of sight measurements obtained from a camera. The proposed method is analyzed based on a UAV scenario generated by our trajectory simulator and the results are provided here. The results show that even a single vision aid can improve the performance of inertial navigation system.

In-orbit estimation of time-varying residual magnetic moment for small satellite applications
Söken, Halil Ersin (2013-09-16)
A method for in-orbit estimation of time-varying residual magnetic moment is presented for small satellite applications. The Unscented Kalman Filter is used as the estimator. Unlike the existing studies in the literature, unexpected abrupt changes in the residual magnetic moment are also considered. Sudden shifts in the mean of the residual magnetic moment is detected by a low pass filter applied to the normalized innovation of the Unscented Kalman Filter. Then, by using a simple approach, which does not re...
Simulation of Directional Microphones in Digital Waveguide Mesh-Based Models of Room Acoustics
Hacıhabiboğlu, Hüseyin; Günel Kılıç, Banu (2010-02-01)
Digital waveguide mesh (DWM) models are time-domain numerical methods providing computationally simple solutions for wave propagation problems. They have been used in various acoustical modeling and audio synthesis applications including synthesis of musical instrument sounds and speech, and modeling of room acoustics. A successful model of room acoustics should be able to account for source and receiver directivity. Methods for the simulation of directional sources in DWM models were previously proposed. T...
Fabrication of a Three-Axis Capacitive MEMS Accelerometer on a Single Substrate
Aydemir, Akin; Akın, Tayfun (2015-11-04)
This paper presents a new fabrication approach and a design for the fabrication of a three-axis capacitive MEMS accelerometer where differential sensing is enabled for all sense directions. In this approach, individual lateral and vertical axis accelerometers are fabricated in the same die on an SOI wafer which is eutectically bonded to a glass substrate. Differential sensing for the vertical axis accelerometer is realized by defining the proof mass of the accelerometer on the structural layer of the SOI wa...
