Sensor Fusion uses extended kalman filter signal processing which normally gives better estimation of position, height, orientation data when sampling rate is increased for example to 25Hz or 50Hz or 100Hz. There are lots of research papers online which provide information on this.

Indeed.  Such solutions are generally proprietary and I would expect
this to be another process that gets information from the sensor
framework and feeds it upwards through geoclue (another process).  The
way the location stack is currently designed, making such a software
solution that performs well is going to be difficult.  Much of the
sensor fusion work is moving into dedicated processors (such as in
Apple's iPhone 5s), anyway.  Modernizing our location stack, however,
is something that is probably out of scope for a scheduling
