In this study, gyroscope-free inertial measurement unit interface is developed to simulate new system configurations called YILDIZ using known calculation methods and implementation of MEMs accelerometers based on cubic arrangement. Additionally significant effect of different sensing directions and sensor allocations are taken into consideration. Throughout the project, simulation studies, realization of sample gyro-free MEMs-based INS systems, and collection of data through data acquisition systems are performed in given order. Using simulation of the system, parameter-dependent errors are aimed to be minimized on the system output. Then, near-ideal geometry and the sensor configurations can be reached and the system can be realized. Prototype outputs are processed and efficient algorithms are developed using Matlab-Simulink environment.
