Map matching by using inertial sensors: literature review

  title={Map matching by using inertial sensors: literature review},
  author={Mika Kaustinen and Mika Taskinen and Tero S{\"a}ntti and Jukka Arvo and Teijo Lehtonen},
This literature review aims to clarify what is known about map matching by using inertial sensors and what are the requirements for map matching, inertial sensors, placement and possible complementary position technology. The target is to develop a wearable location system that can position itself within a complex construction environment automatically with the aid of an accurate building model. The wearable location system should work on a tablet computer which is running an augmented reality… Expand

Distributed Indoor Positioning System With Inertial Measurements and Map Matching
A distributed system for personal positioning based on inertial sensors that consists of an inertial measurement unit connected to a radio carried by a person and the server connected to another radio, which leads to long operation time as power consumption also remains very low. Expand
Semi-autonomous indoor positioning using MEMS-based inertial measurement units and building information

3D ActionSLAM: wearable person tracking in multi-floor environments
3D ActionSLAM stands for action-based simultaneous localization and mapping: It fuses dead reckoning data from a foot-mounted inertial measurement unit with the recognition of location-related actions to build and update a local landmark map that compensates for position drift errors that accumulate in open-loop tracking by means of a particle filter.

A reliable and accurate indoor localization method using phone inertial sensors
This paper addresses reliable and accurate indoor localization using inertial sensors commonly found on commodity smartphones, and builds an end-to-end localization system integrating these modules and an indoor floor map, without the need for infrastructure assistance. Expand
The impact of sensor errors and building structures on particle filter-based inertial positioning
Evaluating the impact of sensor errors and building structures on the positioning accuracy using a waist-mounted system named Pro-Position shows that differences in accuracy can be explained by error sources of the sensor and the constraints provided by building structures. Expand

It is shown that by applying map matching in an indoor environment with corridors, not only can the estimated location be calibrated, but also the estimated sensor's orientation and the walking direction, which reduces the error in the ensuing location update process. Expand
Using smart-phones and floor plans for indoor location tracking
We implement pedestrian dead reckoning (PDR) for indoor localization. With a waist-mounted PDR based system on a smart-phone, we estimate the user's step length that utilizes the height change of theExpand
