Shoe Sensors for Simplified PDR
Despite being around for almost two decades, foot-mounted inertial navigation only has gotten a limited spread. Contributing factors to this are lack of suitable hardware platforms and difficult system integration. As a solution to this, authors present an open-source wireless foot-mounted inertial navigation module with an intuitive and significantly simplified pedestrian dead reckoning interface. In summary, the module provides a modularization of the foot-mounted inertial navigation and makes the technology significantly easier to use.
