Environmental monitoring in inland waters is an important issue for adequate planning and management of this kind of territories. This paper shows the implementation of the concepts and strategies for a boat to follow a pre-established route through waypoints oriented to these water bodies. An extended Kalman filter is used to estimate orientation and position using the readings of an inertial unit fused with a magnetometer and GPS. The strategy shows to be valid in calm conditions, which is sufficient for the mission. © 2018 IEEE.
