Simultaneous localization and mapping for pedestrians using low-cost ultra-wideband system and gyroscope

Christian Gentner, Markus Ulmschneider
2017 2017 International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation (IPIN)  
Ultra-wideband (UWB) is a promising positioning system that has undergone massive research development in recent years. Most UWB systems assume prior knowledge on the positions of the UWB anchors.  ...  Without knowing the anchor positions, an accurate position estimate of a user is difficult.  ...  We use DecaWave's DW1000 UWB transceiver which enables cost effective real-time positioning with high accuracy in the order of 10 cm in indoor and outdoor scenarios.  ...
