An introduction to inertial and visual sensing
Corke, Peter, Lobo, Jorge, & Dias, Jorge (2007) An introduction to inertial and visual sensing. The International Journal of Robotics Research, 26(6), pp. 519-535.
In this paper we present a tutorial introduction to two important senses for biological and robotic systems — inertial and visual perception. We discuss the fundamentals of these two sensing modalities from a biological and an engineering perspective. Digital camera chips and micro-machined accelerometers and gyroscopes are now commodities, and when combined with today's available computing can provide robust estimates of self-motion as well 3D scene structure, without external infrastructure. We discuss the complementarity of these sensors, describe some fundamental approaches to fusing their outputs and survey the field.
