Path tracking with inertial sensors

With the help of inertial sensors, the current position of a moving object can be calculated by continuously acquiring movement data. The resulting pathways can be tracked, recorded and later analyzed. Uses of this technique are, for example, analyses of movement profiles of professional athletes or path analyses of consumers in department stores. This technique can be used both in buildings and outside.

Path tracking with inertial sensors and radio localization

With the combination of inertial sensors and radio localization, the current position of a moving object can be calculated by continuously acquiring movement data. Furthermore, there is additional referencing of the current position via radio localization. The resulting pathways can also be tracked, recorded and analyzed. Uses of this technique are, for example, vehicle localization or vehicle tracking. This technology can be used in buildings or outside, depending on the kind of radio technology used.

Identification

It is possible to distinguish persons from each other based on their individual movement patterns. For this purpose, individual motion vectors are recorded in advance for different motion types and, in the case of a query, a new pattern is compared with the stored patterns. If the movement pattern changes, for example after an injury, the system can re-learn the movement patterns. Since movement patterns are very individual, the system offers a high recognition rate. Nevertheless, it is recommended to couple the identification based on movement patterns with another security method.
