Jonathan Taylor is an Associate Staff at MIT Lincoln Laboratory working on the DAF-MIT AI Accelerator's Magnetic Navigation project. His research interests are primarily centered on Machine learning in novel sensor environments.
The Earth’s crustal magnetic field is a powerful tool for navigation as an alternative to GPS. MagNav.jl is an open-source Julia package containing algorithms for both aeromagnetic compensation and navigation. Alongside baseline algorithms, such as Tolles-Lawson, this package enables multiple scientific machine learning approaches for compensation. This talk will cover some of these techniques and advanced use cases for MagNav.jl in navigation.
