In inertial human motion capture, a multitude of body segments are equipped with inertial measurement units, consisting of 3D accelerometers, 3D gyroscopes and 3D magnetometers. Relative position and orientation estimates can be obtained using the inertial data together with a biomechanical model. In this work we present an optimization-based solution to magnetometer-free inertial motion capture. It allows for natural inclusion of biomechanical constraints, for handling of nonlinearities and for using all data in obtaining an estimate. As a proof-of-concept we apply our algorithm to a lower body configuration, illustrating that the estimates are drift-free and match the joint angles from an optical reference system.
