- In this paper, the system model for the compensation of the low-cost personal navigation system is derived and the error compensation method using GPS is also proposed. WNS(Walking Navigation System) is a kind of personal navigation system using the number of a walk, stride and azimuth. Because the accuracy of these variables determines the navigation performance, computational methods have been investigated. The step is detected using the walking patterns, stride is determined by neural network and azimuth is calculated with gyro output. The neural network filters off unnecessary motions. However, the error compensation method is needed, because the error of navigation information increases with time. In this paper, the accumulated error due to the step detection error, stride error and gyro bias is compensated by the integration with GPS. Loosely coupled Kalman filter is used for the integration of WNS and GPS. It is shown by simulation that the error is bounded even though GPS signal is blocked.
