This paper presents a new system (SIREM) capable of computing the six degrees of freedom and the speed of a moving vehicle. It uses a rotating linear CCD camera on board the vehicle and light sources positioned with precision on the site. The main characteristics of the sensor are reviewed and the equations and method used to compute the position and attitude of the vehicle are presented.
