English abstract:
In the research project NAVIO (Pedestrian Navigation Systems in Combined Indoor/Outdoor Environments) we are working on the integration of different sensors that can be employed for pedestrian navigation and guidance. Thereby challenging tasks are the availability of the position information for continuous location determination in urban outdorr and indoor scenarios and to achieve a seamless transition between outdoor and indoor areas (and vice versa). The sensors can be classified in absolute (e.g. GPS, WLAN and cellular phone positioning) and relative sensors (e.g. dead reckoning sensors). An essential part for dead reckoning is the reliable and accurate determination of the direction of motion (or heading) of the pedestrian. In this paper field tests of a digital compass (i.e., the Honeywell HMR 3000) for heading measurements are presented.
