From the point of view of technical implementation and high accuracy attainability in finding the geographic north heading, a better option is a well-known method based on the direct finding of Earth angular velocity vector by means of an angular accelerometer rotating about the axis orthogonal to the sensitivity axis of that accelerometer.
Angular velocities were calculated as the numerical time integral of the angular accelerometer data.
Angular accelerometers have mostly been used for modal analyses [42], and little is available regarding their efficacy in an automotive or biomechanical context.
