Abstract: This presentation focuses on GPS-free indoor navigation using only strapdown low-cost magneto-inertial sensors and without relying on any prior-mapping of the magnetic field, nor on a dedicated infrastructure. The main idea is to take advantage of the magnetic field’s disturbances present indoor to generate not only a velocity estimate, but also attitude, and position of the moving body under study, enabling therefore the reconstruction of any performed trajectory. To do so, the spatial derivatives of the magnetic field are explored throughout a specific set of a magnetometer array. Different algorithms based on Extended Kalman Filtering (EKF) are implemented, to make use of the proposed model.

Bio: Christophe PRIEUR graduated in Mathematics from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan, France in 2000. He received the Ph.D degree in 2001 in Applied Mathematics from the Université Paris-Sud, France, and the « Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches » (HDR degree) in 2009 from the Université of Toulouse. From 2002 he was an associate researcher CNRS at the laboratory SATIE, Cachan, France, and at the LAAS, Toulouse, France (2004-2010). In 2010 he joined the Gipsa-lab, Grenoble, France where he is currently a senior researcher of the CNRS (since 2011). He was the Program Chair of the 9th IFAC Symposium on Nonlinear Control Systems (NOLCOS 2013), the 14th European Control Conference (ECC 2015) and the 61st IEEE Conference on Decision and Control (CDC 2022). He has been a member of the IEEE-CSS Conference Editorial Board and the EUCA Conference Editorial Board, and an associate editor of the IMA J. Mathematical Control and Information, the IEEE Trans. on Automatic Control, the European J. of Control, the IEEE Trans. on Control Systems Technology, and the Optimal Control Applications and Methods. He is currently an associate editor of the AIMS Evolution Equations and Control Theory, the SIAM Journal of Control and Optimization and the Mathematics of Control, Signals, and Systems. He is a senior editor of the IEEE Control Systems Letters, and an editor of the IMA Journal of Mathematical Control and Information. His current research interests include nonlinear control theory, hybrid systems, and control of partial differential equations, with applications including navigation and object tracking, fluid dynamics, and fusion control. He is an IMA Fellow, and an IEEE Fellow.

Nous comptons vivement sur votre participation.
