GMV NSL feature in the Inside GNSS editor’s picks for Top Twelve GNSS and PNT Tech Stories of 2020

 

Nottingham, 14th January 2021

 

GMV NSL feature in the Inside GNSS editor’s picks for Top Twelve GNSS and PNT Tech Stories of 2020, view the article here! The featured article 'Accuracy for the Masses' explores a new methodology for targeting sub-meter GNSS accuracies in the consumer realm for applications such as augmented reality and visually impaired navigation. Recent Android RTK smartphone services in a real-time environment achieve accuracies below 50 cm. This article explores the application of PPP as a real-time positioning service to achieve these kinds of accuracies - can RTK be matched with PPP?

The GREENPATROL Project features in Coordinates Magazine

 

Nottingham, 12th January 2021

 

The GreenPatrol project features in this month's Coordinates magazine! See the link to the article here.

 

The Horizon 2020 (H2020) GreenPatrol project has developed an autonomous robotic solution that has the ability to navigate inside greenhouses while performing early pest detection and control tasks. The article describes the main developments of the project, including the precise positioning and navigation system developed and used within the light indoor environment of a greenhouse working alongside the perception system with visual sensing for online pest detection and control.

The World's First SBAS-enabled Smartphone Service

 

Nottingham, 16th November 2020

 

GMV NSL, RMIT University and FrontierSI are pleased to announce the demonstration of the first smartphone positioning service using data from SBAS DFMC (satellite-based augmentation system dual-frequency multi-constellation). In a collaborative project with Frontier SI and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), a world-first positioning service using SBAS DFMC data was developed and successfully demonstrated in real-time. Known as POSSUM, the service was developed within the Australia and New Zealand SBAS Test-bed, and utilised both raw GNSS data from the Android Raw GNSS API as well as precise correctional services of DFMC SBAS. The services that were demonstrated could be received by potentially millions of users in both countries, anywhere in which they are connected to mobile service networks. The project sought to showcase Aus-NZ SBAS within the consumer application market. With the availability of precise positioning on smartphones, it is anticipated that the industry will find new and varied applications to take advantage of increased location service performance. These include applications in the fields of travel, leisure/sports, gaming, engineering, and agriculture. The service was demonstrated in both Sydney and Melbourne. A picture representing one dynamic real-time test is presented here, showcasing the service in action, below this is an image of the POSSUM application running on a Smartphone.
