ABSTRACT
Shoe-mounted inertial sensors offer a convenient way to track pedestrians in situations where other localization systems fail. This tutorial outlines a simple yet effective approach for implementing a reasonably accurate tracker. This Web extra presents the Matlab implementation and a few sample recordings for implementing the pedestrian inertial tracking system using an error-state Kalman filter for zero-velocity updates (ZUPTs) and orientation estimation.
