Abstract

Disclosed is an apparatus generating accurate data regarding the heading of a land vehicle as it travels over terrain having changing conditions. The apparatus includes a first sensor means, such as a differential odometer, generating data regarding the relative direction of the vehicle. Also included is a second sensor means, such as a flux gate compass, for generating data regarding the absolute direction of the vehicle relative to the earth. The relative directional data and the absolute directional data are combined in a means for generating accurate data regarding the heading of the vehicle. A means for reducing errors reflected in signals generated by the sensors is provided to insure the accuracy of the output.
