The objective of this research is to develop an automatic guidance system composed of relatively
low cost sensors. As a navigation sensor, we used a geomagnetic direction sensor (GDS) and a
gyroscope. To increase the accuracy of these sensors outputs and navigation performance, these
sensor output were integrated based on sensor fusion technique.
