Indoor self-localization using multiple magnetic sensors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study proposes an indoor self-localization for the estimation of the position and posture of an instrument using multiple magnetic sensors. First, a magnetic map for the localization is efficiently created using multiple sensors and a local positioning device made from an optical sensor and a gyroscope. For the localization estimating trajectories, the measurement error of the local positioning is corrected by matching it with the magnetic map. Our instrument is composed of six magnetic sensors, and the description of the selflocalization details is based on the framework of a particle filter. The experimental results show better indoor path trajectories compared with a raw trajectory without map matching. The accuracy of the instrument using various numbers of magnetic sensors for the estimation is also investigated.
