Abstract

We previously presented a prototype of a personal navigation system called NavShoe™ which uses shoe-mounted inertial sensors and magnetometers to achieve GPS-denied navigation with very low drift rates in most circumstances.  Zero-velocity updates (ZUPTs) were obtained during the stance phase of each step to correct position and velocity drift, and carefully-screened and compensated magnetometer readings helped constrain the heading drift of the low-cost MEMS gyroscopes.
