Inertial Navigation Systems Pros and Cons

From airplanes to drones and now autonomous vehicles, GNSS-aided inertial navigation systems (INS/GNSS) are enabling companies around the world to reach new heights in autonomy. An INS/GNSS is comprised of an inertial measurement unit (IMU), a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receiver and fusion software. These components work together to calculate position, orientation and velocity to deliver critical navigation information in GNSS-denied areas like urban canyons, bridges, tunnels, mountains, parking garages and dense forests.
