Abstract : Navigation with an integrated INS/GPS approach requires to solve a set of nonlinear equations. In this case, nonlinear filtering techniques such as Particle Filtering methods are expected to perform better than the classical, but suboptimal, Extended Kalman Filter. Besides, the INS/GPS model has a conditionally linear Gaussian structure. A Rao-Blackwelliza\-tion procedure can then be applied to reduce the variance of the state estimates. This paper studies different algorithms combining Rao-Blackwellization and particle filtering for a specific INS/GPS scenario. Simulation results illustrate the performance of these algorithms. The variance of the estimates is also compared to the corresponding posterior Cramer-Rao bound.
