Collection description

In this thesis work, the main technologies and technique for the indoor positioning system (IPS) are discussed and presented. In particular, an alternative hybrid IPS and heading measurements system is being proposed. The hybrid navigation system is based on ultra-wide-band (UWB) technology, and on a twofold ultrasonics (US) sensors for the heading measurements. In the most application cases the, inertial measurements unit (IMU) measurements is combined with the IPS. Combining the two different systems, the position and orientation of a target can be tracked. In presence of static magnetic fields disturbance in the localization area, the magnetometer can not be used in the traditional IMU guidance system as a reference for the heading correction and measurements. For this reason, a new approach is proposed for measuring heading based on US and UWB fusing system. The proposed system was prototyped and metrologically characterized, and then collocated in the AugmenSur project, an augmented reality application with the aim of providing real-time assistance to surgeon during the operating and training phases.
