The authors consider the problem of carrier-phase differential GPS positioning for an Land Vehicle Navigation System (LVNS), tightly coupled with an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and a speedometer. The primary focus is to apply Bayesian network to an IMU-aided GPS positioning system based on carrier-phase differential GPS. They describe the implementation details of the positioning system that integrates GPS measurements (i.e., pseudo-range, carrier-phase and doppler), IMU measurements, and speedometer measurements. They derive the linearized state process equation and the measurement equation for GPS and speedometer. To account for constraints of land vehicle, they add two more pseudo measurements to ensure the perpendicular velocities close to zero.
