Abstract

This paper describes the detailed development and implementation of a low-cost strapdown inertial navigation system and its application to the navigation of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). The navigation system fuses various sources of information from low-cost sensor suites such as an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), a Global Positioning System (GPS), and a three-axis magnetometer in the framework of an Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF). In particular, sensor measurements are taken at various rates and states are updated based on the availability of these measurements. The performance and error analysis of the overall integrated navigation system are assessed in a realistic simulation environment by comparing performance with that of an existing Extended Kalman Filter-based navigation system.
