  10. Fast Real Time Positioning using GNSS

    SBC: SUB CARRIER SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: 121FH2

    A well-established method of differential GNSS corrections, referred to as real time kinematic (RTK), is applied to raw signals which can be obtained for inexpensive automotive grade GNSS designs. This technical approach to position determination is historically found only in higher cost survey grade devices. Today’s automotive class designs can achieve positional accuracies of slightly over one ...
