Abstract:

The objective of this proposal is to develop a low cost head tracking system to monitor the orientations of an individual's head. This head tracker can be incorporated with a 3-D audio system that will provide cues to operators for increasing situational awareness. This proposed system will be based on Archangel's Inertial Measurement Unit 'IM3'. The Head Alignment and Orientation (HALO) system will use QFLASP (Quaternion Fuzzy Logic Adaptive Signal Processing) to compute roll, pitch and yaw angles. This IMU based system will have the option to use a magnetic sensor and/or GPS to compute the head orientation accurately. The 'Smart Fuzzy Corrector' in QFLASP can reject the inconsistent GPS or magnetic data and use appropriate proprietary filtering algorithms to compute solutions based on quality of the data.
