The Inertial Sensors and Systems 2017 was held in Karlsruhe, Germany at 19 and 20 September 2017.
For the 11th time the international conference “Inertial Sensors and Systems” took place in Karlsruhe, Germany, organized by the “Institute of Systems Optimization (ITE)” together with the “German Institute of Navigation (DGON)”, cosponsored by the “Royal Institute of Navigation (RIN)” and by the “IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS)”.
The main aim of the conference was to provide a neutral forum for discussion and networking of competing companies, governmental decision makers as well as research institutions in the field of inertial sensors and multisensory navigation systems.The members of the program committee covered university as well as relevant German sensors and systems companies: Dr. T. Erler, Sagem Navigation; Dr. E. von Hinüber, IMAR; Dr. W. Geiger, Robert Bosch GmbH; T. Löffler, Diehl BGT Defence; Dr. S. Zimmermann, Northrop Grumman Litef; and Prof. J. Wagner, University of Stuttgart.
24 technical papers from 12 nations out of 48 paper submissions were presented, covering Accelerometers, MEMS Gyroscopes, Vibrating Gyroscopes, Fibre Optic Gyroscopes, Sensor Fusion, Simulation and Testing, and Inertial Systems Applications.
A total of approximately 200 visitors from 21 nations, underscores the international recognition of this conference.
This year is the last time, the conference has been organized by the ITE; next year the University of Braunschweig will take over the responsibility, maintaining the same format and the same focus on research and networking opportunities.
So finally I would like to express my deep gratitude to the program committee for selecting the high level papers, to the staff of the “Institute of Systems Optimization ITE” for their technical and logistic support, and especially to the conference manager Dr. A. Teltschik for the perfect organization of this successful conference series.
The next conference “Inertial Sensors and Systems” will be take place in Braunschweig, from 11 to 12 September 2018.
