Title: DEVICE FOR LOCATING MOVING OBJECTS OR PEOPLE
Abstract:
This invention relates to a device for locating a moving object or person in a space partially equipped with inductive surfaces. The device comprises means of magnetic detection capable of detecting the presence of the object or the person on or near an inductive surface, measuring a heading angle with two simultaneous measurement points and generating time-stamped reference heading angle data for the object or the person; means of inertial detection capable of generating estimated acceleration and angular speed data for the object or the person; and calculation means, coupled with the magnetic and inertial detection means, capable of combining the time-stamped reference heading angle data with the estimated data to generate corrected position and orientation data, in space, for the object or the person.
