A Comprehensive Survey of Navigation Systems for the Visual Impaired

A compact but comprehensive collection of available methods to build each component has been provided and researchers are provided with the essential knowledge to understand the nuances in each component and give them a baseline to start with.

Techniques for Constructing Indoor Navigation Systems for the Visually Impaired: A Review

The discussed methods in this article may have not been implemented for a navigation assistive technology for visually impaired directly but they have great potential to be integrated as an individual building block for this task.

Seamless Interactions Between Humans and Mobility Systems

This document summarizes current capabilities, research and operational priorities, and plans for further studies that were established at the 2015 USGS workshop on quantitative hazard assessments of earthquake-triggered landsliding and liquefaction in the Czech Republic.

Heading Direction Estimation Using Deep Learning with Automatic Large-scale Data Acquisition

The problem of estimating the heading direction that keeps the vehicle aligned with the road direction, which can be used in precise localization, road and lane keeping, lane departure warning, and others is addressed.

Skyline based camera attitude estimation using a digital surface model

An algorithm which estimates the attitude of a camera using camera images and a Digital Surface Model (DSM) referenced by GPS is proposed, which indicates a higher precision than current camera attitude estimation algorithms using a DSM, while also providing a robust yaw estimate.

When Road Information Meets Data Mining: Precision Detection for Heading and Width of Roads

This work directly mine useful road information, heading, and width of roads, for ITS applications from GPS point cloud, i.e., a set of GPS points, and the least squares method (LSM) is demonstrated to be outstanding for mining the heading of the road under a huge number of GPS Points.

Carrier Phase-Based Precise Heading and Pitch Estimation Using a Low-Cost GNSS Receiver

The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm is capable of providing precise vehicular heading and pitch estimates, with both the root mean square errors being better than 1.5°, and indicates that the cycle slip exclusion is indispensable to avoid unexpected large errors.

Effective Shortest Paths in Road Network Information Using MPP Progressive Model

The transports of zone centers is to be analyzed and in order to have the finest fitting path the least squares technique is considered to be best technique for mining the data and thereafter

Intelligent Buoys for Aiding AUV Navigation Under the Ice

An intelligent buoy network designed to aid AUV navigation during operations under the ice and a non-singular horizontal position representation called n-vector and its use for ice-relative guidance and navigation are presented.

A study of the effects of compass bias on navigational accuracy of autonomous underwater vehicles using the Florida Atlantic University OEX vehicle and a large set of data obtained from a 3.5 Km run so that the dependency of compass error on actual heading could be evaluated.


The common and uncritical use of the magnetic compass by oriemeers and walkers in Tasmania may lead to severe error. Rocks in many localities are imensely magnetised and their local field can

A Non-singular Horizontal Position Representation

Position calculations, e.g. adding, subtracting, interpolating, and averaging positions, depend on the representation used, both with respect to simplicity of the written code and accuracy of the

Inertial navigation systems analysis

This book offers a guide for avionics system engineers who want to compare the performance of the various types of inertial navigation systems. The author emphasizes systems used on or near the

Compass star tracker for GPS-like applications

The resulting system is the Compass Star Tracker (CST), that is, a star tracker used as a global surface navigation system that does not require any satellite information or other support from ground stations to be used in lieu of the traditional Global Positioning System.

Segmentation of bathymetric profiles and terrain matching for underwater vehicle navigation

A terrain-based underwater navigation using sonar bathymetric profiles is presented, and the formalism of partial differential equations is used to smooth depth maps in a morphologically invariant way and to obtain anisotropic contours.

NavLab, a Generic Simulation and Post-processing Tool for Navigation

NavLab has been used extensively for mass-production of accurate navigation results (having post-processed more than 5000 hours of real data in four continents).

Precise Velocity Estimation Using a Stand-Alone GPS Receiver

ABSTRACT: Stand-alone GPS receiver velocity algorithms and flight test results are presented. A dual-frequency GPS receiver was subjected to aircraft dynamics of up to 1 g (9.8 m/s2), with aircraft

What Do the Sun and the Sky Tell Us About the Camera?

The sun and the sky serve as geometric calibration targets, which can be used to annotate a large database of image sequences and are demonstrated to achieve a mean localization error of 110 km on real, low-quality Internet webcams.
