The existing systems of personal navigation are reviewed, their shortcomings being revealed, in particular, the appearance of significant errors since no correcting SNS signal is available because the sensors on the user’s body cannot be fixed in the optimal way and their general trajectory of relocation in space is non-trivial. Some methods of increasing the accuracy with the use of alternative sources of moment parameters are proposed.
