New Indoor Navigation Combines Video With Inertial Data

Just found this website that includes a methodology to produce very accurate indoor navigation. They combine a technique called Rolling Shutter with IMU sensor fusion.

Here's the paper covering her methodology:

Don't be intimidated by the quaternion math because Invensense solves them for us in the MPU 6050.

I haven't yet found the source code but will post it here when I do. Here's some source code from Hannes Ovren who is integrating Rolling Shutter with gyro data:
