Collaborative Environment Learning: The Key to Localization of Soldiers in Urban EnvironmentsMoafipoor, Shahram; Bock, Lydia; Fayman, Jeffrey A.; Mader, Gerry; Strong, Michael; Geodetics Inc. (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2009-10)Several navigation technologies exist, which can facilitate the generation of Time Space Positioning Information (TSPI) in urban environments. These include GPS, image-based localization, radio-based localization and dead reckoning. This paper first presents a basic overview of these techniques including advantages and limitations of each. We present an approach to localization in urban environments, based on environment learning and collaborative navigation using multiple homogeneous and non-homogeneous localization technologies, fused to form a multi-sensor system.
