New High-End GNSS Simulator Unveiled by Rohde & Schwarz at ION GNSS+ 2017

Today, an increasing number of GNSS receivers are able to process signals from diverse navigation systems such as GPS, GLONASS, Galileo or BeiDou in several frequency bands — and in some cases with several antennas in parallel — in order to improve positioning accuracy. Accuracy can be further improved with differential GNSS (DGNSS) techniques.

Applanix Launches Updated POS LVX for High-Accuracy Positioning and Orientation for Autonomous Ground Vehicles

Applanix, a Trimble Company, last week introduced an updated version of its POS LVX system, which provides high-accuracy positioning and orientation for the operation of autonomous ground vehicles. The POS LVX can be integrated with cameras, Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), RAdio Detection and Ranging (RADAR), and other sensors to provide accurate Positioning and Orientation System Estimation (POSE) for localization, perception, and the production of high-precision maps critical for autonomous vehicles.

Honey Shares his Lifetime of Navigation with Boats, Cars and Sports During Keynote Speech

As a child Stan Honey taught himself navigation and he admits he was “always good at math” and “just found navigation interesting.”

When he shared his many tales with the crowd in the Oregon Ballroom Tuesday night at the ION GNSS+ during the Plenary Session, the Yale- and Stanford-trained engineer entertained the audience with a wealth of information on early navigation systems, current navigation technologies, and how he and his colleagues developed many of the systems used to enhance the way millions of fans watch sports on television.
