GNSS positioning: Precise Point Positioning and Real Time Kinematic

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


Getting a self-driving car to the road is clearly a multi-disciplinary challenge. Technical aspects concern vehicle control, communication, vehicle vicinity remote sensing, and positioning. In this presentation the required positioning capabilities are outlined, in terms of accuracy and integrity, particularly for advanced driver assistance and fully automated vehicles. Next, GNSS satellite navigation solutions to meet these requirements are presented, as just an ordinary GPS position fix will meet neither the required accuracy, nor the integrity risk. Assisted driving can be enabled by Precise Point Positioning (PPP) delivering sub-meter accuracy, and fully automated vehicles require Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) GPS positioning. Finally, trends and developments in the field of GNSS satellite navigation, are reviewed, related to self-driving cars.
