Connected car technology promises to drastically reduce the number of accidents involving vehicles. Nevertheless, this technology requires the vehicle precise location to work. The adoption of Global Positioning System (GPS) as a navigation device imposes limitations to geolocation information under non-line-of-sight conditions. This work introduces the Time Series Dead Reckoning System (TedriS) as a solution for dead reckoning navigation when the GPS fails. TedriS uses Time Series Regression

The process to estimate the position is carried out in two phases: training and predicting. In the training phase, a novel technique applies TSRM and stores the relationship between the GPS and the rear wheel speed data; then in the predicting phase, this relationship is used. We analyze TedriS using traces collected at the campus of Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil, and with indoor experiments with a robot. Results show an accuracy compatible with dead-reckoning navigation state-of-art systems.
