About the Authors
  • Mystified by locating and positioning technologies? Need to get the best from your location system? This guide is invaluable for understanding how the positions and movements of objects can be measured and used for real-world applications. From it, you'll learn how to optimise and manage system performance by working with parameters such as velocity, orientation, time, proximity and direction, and consider not only accuracy, but also reliability, integrity, response time and uncertainty. Packed with practical examples, this concise book gives you an overview of terrestrial radiolocation techniques, including comparative system architectures and real-world performance and limitations. It describes inertial navigation principles and techniques, including low-cost MEMS sensors for consumer products, and a range of applications, such as those benefiting from hybrid positioning techniques.

    • Helps you understand how to use an estimate of a position to add value as a context to the end user application
    • Uses real-world examples to illustrate how to interpret and understand the performance of locating and positioning systems
    • Presents methods for achieving universal locating and positioning capability through the fusion of different techniques and approaches
