Traditionally, inertial navigation has been an expensive technology which limited its application to high-end military vehicles, precision-guided missiles or aircraft. Since the advent of MEMS technology and low-cost gyroscopes and accelerometers
Use of robots for domestic as well as commercial purposes is growing rapidly. As the cost of robots goes down and their versatility increases, a lot more of tasks and chores would be performed by robots. Precise and accurate navigational assistance is absolutely essential for robots to function properly and carry out their ordered tasks.
An invention of fossil fuel powered vehicles brought about a big shift in our lives. Faster and convenient transportation has improved productivity and has led to accelerated growth in every sector.
