Indoor positioning - now you can path-follow without GPS!

Md Indoor

Working in conjunction with OxTS, AB Dynamics has developed an indoor positioning system for use with its robots. It offers sufficient accuracy for use in path-following, meaning that a huge range of tests previously done outdoors can now be performed under cover.

The new system combines IMU data with a unique absolute positioning system to give centimetre accurate output even at speed or during dynamic tests.

The following video gives more details about this exciting new development and shows testing performed using a fully-functional prototype.
