Capturing a wave of innovation and creativity in the field, this greatly expanded edition of
Principles of GNSS, Inertial, and Multisensor Integrated Navigation Systems combines a comprehensive
review of the latest navigation and positioning technologies with clear explanations of their
underlying principles and details on how to integrate technologies for maximum accuracy and reliability.
Global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), inertial navigation, terrestrial radio positioning, odometry,
pedestrian dead reckoning, magnetic heading determination, image-based navigation, and
map matching are explained alongside a host of other technologies suitable for air, land, sea,
underwater, indoor, and space navigation and positioning. As well as providing in-depth coverage
of INS/GNSS and multisensor integration, the book describes fault detection and integrity monitoring,
discusses design and testing, and incorporates the latest thinking on context-dependent and
The accompanying DVD includes MATLAB® INS/GNSS simulation software, extensive appendices,
worked examples, and problems.
Providing expert guidance for engineers, researchers, educators, and students in navigation and
positioning, this book helps readers:
- Design, develop, and debug INS/GNSS, and multisensor integrated navigation systems;
- Select the right combination of technology and sensors to meet the requirements of particular
navigation or positioning applications;
- Make more informed engineering and application decisions by better understanding the characteristics,
performance, and errors of different positioning technologies.
