In the air vehicle, we need to measure the position and orientation using sensor measurements such as the inertial navigation sensors and GPS. We can develop and test an integrated navigation system that will incorporate a GPS receiver to provide the geographical location, whenever there is clear visibility of a few GPS satellites. An IMU, which consists of a set of heading and motion sensors that will provide the direction, attitude, gyroscopic and acceleration data (Dead Reckoning sensors). The algorithm and software to perform navigation based on the DR sensors are achievable. Moreover, we can combine the output of the DR sensor with GPS to display in a user-friendly featured project involving GPS navigation, and vehicle localization with online travel (speed, velocity, acceleration. etc.) data feedback.
