Innovation: Guidance for road and track

January 14, 2016By

Real-time single-frequency precise point positioning for cars and trains
In this month’s Innovation column, we bring together, perhaps for the first time, single-frequency and real-time PPP. Our authors describe a series of experiments they have conducted on roadways and a railway achieving sub-meter horizontal positioning at a 95 percent confidence interval. Such accuracies may already be sufficient for freeway lane and railway track guidance. But we might expect even better accuracies in the future. After all, PPP is getting better all the time. read more

PPP for hydrography

December 15, 2015By

A new high-accuracy technique using one dual-frequency GNSS receiver, precise point positioning (PPP) offers the possibility of cost-effectively obtaining coordinates. This study investigates the accuracy of kinematic PPP for hydrographic applications on rivers, and shows results comparable to double-difference solutions. read more
