GSA to host GNSS Raw Measurements Taskforce Workshop “GNSS Raw Measurements: From research to commercial use” on May 30

Following the publication of the White Paper Using GNSS Raw Measurements on Android Devices, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and the Raw Measurements Taskforce will share their experiences around the use of raw measurements at a dedicated workshop - GNSS Raw Measurements: From research to commercial use” - to be held at the GSA headquarters in Prague on May 30.

There are several advantages to using GNSS raw measurements in Taskforce experts will explain how to use GNSS raw measurements for scientific purposes, to optimise performance, or to improve robustnesssmartphones and IoT devices. Use of these measurements can lead to increased GNSS performance, as they open the door to more advanced GNSS processing techniques that, until recently, have been restricted to more professional GNSS receivers.

Android GNSS raw measurements in practice

Several application areas stand to profit from this increased accuracy, such as augmented reality, location-based advertising, mobile health and asset management. The raw measurements also make it possible to optimise multi-GNSS solutions and to select satellites or constellations based on their performances or differentiators.

At the Prague workshop, experts from the GSA and the Raw Measurements Taskforce, which includes GNSS experts, scientists and GNSS market players, will share their experience of raw measurements use.

Discussions at the event will cover:

  • Contributions from Taskforce members on four following topics:
    • High accuracy position provision,
    • Educational applications,
    • Testing and performance optimization,
    • Robustness increase;
  • Google`s vision on advanced location services;
  • Future outlook for High accuracy in mass market including Galileo contribution.
