Inomhusnavigering med hjälp av accelerometer och magnetometer (Swedish)
This project will create a navigation system based on dead reckoning using anaccelerometer and a magnetometer. There have previously been several studiesmade on navigation with accelerometers, magnetometers (electronic compass) andgyros. With these three components it is possible to do positioning and differentkinds of movement analyses. There are several methods for detection of movementand calculation of position. To achieve greater accuracy in these applications,gyros are often used. Compared to magnetometers and accelerometer gyrosconsumes a lot of power. In an embedded system with limited power suppliesfrom a battery this may be unacceptable.
In this project a positioning system without a gyro have been developedand evaluated. Is this possible to do, and what accuracy is possible to achieve arequestions asked.Algorithms have been developed and tested in MATLAB. The project is based ona device called a BeeBadge, part of the project will be to transfer the developedalgorithms from MATLAB to C-code. Optimizations of the code will be performeddue to the constraints in the memory and speed of the microcontroller on theBeeBadge.
