In Terrain Relative Navigation (TRN), a vehicle's position is estimated by comparing terrain measurements (e.g. sonar or altimeter) with a terrain map.

The vehicle is most likely to be over areas of terrain whose profiles (in the map) most closely correlate with the profiles measured by the vehicle. Terrain-Relative Navigation for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles D.E. Di Massa W.K.

After introducing readers to the state of the art, it describes a joint endeavor involving attitude and position estimation, and details the development of a nonlinear attitude observer that employs inertial and magnetic field data and is suitable for.

Terrain Based Navigation, Terrain Relative Navigation or Terrain Aided Navigation are all interchangeable terms used to describe a family of position fixing systems based on the profile of the terrain.

Underwater Terrain Based Navigation (TBN), to which research efforts have been recently focused, is a potentially powerful solution for long Cited by: A survey on Terrain Based Navigation for AUVs.

In the field of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), it has the potential to bound the drift inherent to dead reckoning navigation, based on. The motivation for these implementation efforts was to develop a short range, inexpensive, but relatively high precision navigation system for each institution's autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).Author: Brian Bingham.

Recent development of underwater Terrain Relative Navigation (TRN) provides an enabling capability for low-cost navigation on underwater vehicles. High performance TRN systems have been demonstrated using both high-accuracy inertial navigation systems (INS) and high-quality sonars such as multibeam echo sounders.

Moving to systems with lower-cost sensor equipment would enable a broader range. Terrain Relative Navigation (TRN) has the potential to enable drift-free, low-cost navigation for a wide range of underwater vehicles.

Current underwater TRN systems have demonstrated meter-level navigation accuracy by utilizing high-accuracy inertial navigation systems in combination with both low and high quality sonar sensors and bathymetry maps.

Juriga. Terrain Relative Navigation (TRN) provides an en-abling technology for drift-free, low-cost navigation on many existing underwater vehicles. While high-performance TRN systems have been demonstrated us-ing high-quality sensors and terrain maps, these systems can be very costly and the high-resolution bathymetry maps used are of limited.

Outliers in terrain data are an obstacle to achieving accurate and robust solutions of Underwater Terrain Relative Navigation (UTRN). If not handled properly, navigation may be degraded or even divergent.

To address the problem, this paper proposes a terrain-matching algorithm based on.

Terrain relative navigation is typically achieved using an altimeter that constantly samples the height of the terrain directly below the platform moving along a velocity track.

The one-dimensional topography information thus obtained is compared to a topographical database, that allows a current bearing and location of the platform to be obtained.
