INERTIAL AND IMAGING SENSOR FUSION FOR AN AUTONOMOUS TOMORROW
In this talk we discuss Analog Device’s approach to enable safe, reliable autonomous transport by developing highly accurate, real-time sensor fusion for navigation. Our perception sensor suite uses RADAR, LIDAR, cameras, and IMUs to provide a trustworthy position of a vehicle in GPS-denied environment. We experimentally demonstrate strapdown inertial navigation for automobiles with position errors reaching GPS-like accuracies by using a tactical-grade IMU and visual/lidar/radar odometry. We analyze the propagation of sensor errors into positional error and compare theory with field test results.
