Extracting Information from Inertial Measurements

In recent years technological advances have made sensors smaller and more affordable. Today, especially "simple" sensors, such as inertial measurement units (IMUs), can now be found almost everywhere and are very affordable. These sensors can be a great source of information, but it is often required to combine several of them to provide the type of answers sought. Sensor fusion provides a powerful framework to combine information from several sources. IMU based results from human motion capture and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) will be used to exemplify this.
