Abstract

The project presented in this paper aims at defining the limits of microsystems through the realisation of a navigation system based on inertial microsensors. The work includes (i) design, fabrication, characterisation of accelerometers and angular rate sensors, (ii) development of techniques for simulation of sensor behaviour, and (iii) design of a sensor data processing system. 1 Introduction The advent of microsensors widens the market for navigation systems, limited up to now to costly applications. For example, in automotive applications, microsensors can be used as a complement to GPS navigation (Global Positioning System), espe
