For PNT Integration, Timing Is Everything

GPS + inertial + camera + LiDAR + baro-altimeter = a very precise measurement, right? Not when the respective sensor output timings lack proper synchronization. Only when each piece of data carries an accurate timetag can they together enable optimal performance in multi-sensor fusion systems.

Increased Rail Role Urged for Galileo and EGNOS; GNSS Important for Europe’s Green New Deal and Mobility Makeover

“Trains were born in Europe,” opens a recent report on European energy policy from the Jacques Delors Institute in Paris. So also, in some senses, were the Green movement and increased awareness of personal mobility options and potential. For the continent and the European Union community to maintain their world leadership in these two areas, the rail sector must play a greater role than it does presently, argues report author Matthias Ruete. He sees Galileo and EGNOS, the two European GNSS, as essential to this strategy.
