Magnetometer Modeling and Validation for Tracking Metallic Targets

  title={Magnetometer Modeling and Validation for Tracking Metallic Targets},
  author={Niklas Wahlstrom and Fredrik Gustafsson},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing},
With the electromagnetic theory as a basis, we present a sensor model for three-axis magnetometers suitable for localization and tracking as required in intelligent transportation systems and security applications. The model depends on a physical magnetic dipole model of the target and its relative position to the sensor. Both point target and extended target models are provided as well as a heading angle dependent model. The suitability of magnetometers for tracking is analyzed in terms of… CONTINUE READING
