A foot-mounted pedestrian dead reckoning system is a self-contained technique for indoor localization. An inertial pedestrian navigation system includes wearable MEMS inertial sensors, such as an accelerometer, gyroscope, or digital compass, which enable the measurement of the step length and the heading direction. Therefore, the use of zero velocity updates is necessary to minimize the inertial drift accumulation of the sensors. The aim of this paper is to develop a foot-mounted pedestrian dead reckoning system based on an inertial measurement unit and a permanent magnet. Our approach enables the stance phase and the step duration detection based on the measure...
