Fixed motion tracking systems can offer highly accurate data but several drawbacks are present, including a high upfront cost and require the user to stay within a very limited area. Of keen interest are shoe mounted systems which aim to offer a similar suite of information but are unconstrained in their operating environment. The potential of knowing the user's foot placement and orientation is an extremely valuable set of information. This data can be used in a wide range of applications such as healthcare monitoring, emergency responder localisation, and lower limb prosthetic stability and control. This thesis investigates the potential of using low cost (~£3...
