3D Modeling of Pipeline Sections Within a Building by Means of Inertial Navigation Methods
Completion date: 6.6.2023

The primary outcome of our project is that using accelerations measured by MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems) sensors for position estimation is not viable with the specific sensors and algorithms we examined. However, we found that the IMU's orientation can be tracked quite accurately. This orientation data can be integrated into a position estimation solution, given that an accurate measurement of the traveled distance is available.
