Research activities

Dr. El-Sheimy’s research interests include multi-sensor systems, mobile mapping systems, estimation techniques, real-time kinematic positioning, and digital photogrammetry and their applications in transportation, mapping and Geospatial Information Systems (GIS). Through his work at the University of Calgary, he was able to achieve outstanding international status with his team in three specific areas:

1. The development of inertial techniques for positioning and navigation. Dr. El-Sheimy work in this field contributed pioneering algorithms, products, and results which were recognized worldwide; for example, he:

• Developed a strap-down inertial navigation mechanization algorithm in Earth Fixed Earth Centered (EFEC) Frame of reference.

• Developed a new calibration technique for inertial systems that does not require any lab calibration

• Developed a software for pipeline integrity monitoring using Pipeline Inspection Gauge (PIG)

2. Achieving international stature for his pioneering work on the integration techniques of inertial navigation systems with GPS for navigation and mobile multi-sensor systems. In this area, Dr. El-Sheimy research team:

• Invented and developed the concept of direct geo-referencing using INS/GPS data

• Developed VISAT, one of the first commercial Mobile Mapping System (MMS) in the world.

• Developed one of the first software in the world for integrating Inertial Navigation Systems data with data from GPS.

3. The third area which achieved international recognition is MEMS-based sensors algorithms for navigation systems. Dr. El-Sheimy’s pioneering work on this area led to:

• The development of the first techniques for smartphone-based navigation applications

• Developed the first Mat-lab toolbox for MEMS-base inertial navigation applications
