Strapdown inertial navigation systems require an initialization process that establishes the relationship between the aircraft body frame and the local geographic reference. This process, called alignment, generally requires the device to remain stationary for some period of time in order to establish this initial state. This paper describes an alignment process where the initialization occurs while the device is moving. This is possible because an accurate determination of the aircraft motion… Expand
On-the-move alignment for strap-down inertial navigation system
The initial alignment of the terrestrial vehicle borne strap-down inertial navigation system (SINS) is investigated. An on-the-move alignment algorithm using the information provided by an odometer,Expand

An optimization-based coarse alignment approach that uses GPS position/velocity as input, founded on the newly-derived velocity/position integration formulae is proposed, and can serve as a nice coarse in-flight alignment without any prior attitude information for the subsequent fine Kalman alignment.

Automatic calibration and in-motion alignment of an odometer-aided INS
In-motion alignment problem has been regarded as a challenging problem for years in the extensive study on inertial navigation systems (INS's). In this contribution, the problem of odometer-aidedExpand
On INS in-motion alignment for land vehicles
The Kalman filter(KF)-based method and Inertial reference frame(IRF-based method for land inertial navigation system in-motion alignment are comprehensively compared and analyzed and the factors, which are harmful to the alignment accuracy are presented and the solutions proposed. Expand
Adaptive filtering design for in-motion alignment of INS
A simplified form of Celso's adaptive stochastic filtering is derived and applied to estimate both the INS error states and measurement noise statistics and to detect and bound the influence of outliers in INS/GPS integration. Expand
Real-time accurate odometer velocity estimation aided by accelerometers
Abstract In strap-down gyro-compass in-motion alignment, the alignment accuracy depends not only on the quality of the gyroscopes and accelerometers, but also on the accuracy of the velocity providedExpand
