In this paper, the authors examine the feasibility of designing a gyroscope-free inertial navigation system (INS) that uses only accelerometers for computing the linear and angular motions of a rigid body. The algorithm computes the linear displacement and rotation of the body relative to a fixed inertial reference frame. The paper describes the accelerometer output equation, the feasibility of gyroscope-free INS design, the effects of location and orientation errors, and the design of a gyroscope-free INS.
