Challenges in GNSS /INS Integration

Dr. Andrey Soloviev, Qunav

GNSS and inertial technologies have a complicated mutual history.

Once competitors for navigation and positioning applications, they now appear ever more frequently in complementary roles — often within the same solution or system design.

Everywhere Navigation

Consumer demand for positioning information is currently being met by a plethora of wireless positioning technologies. The most popular consumer positioning technology, GNSS, is only one option along with several methods that use cellular networks to provide location, such as wireless local area networks (WLANs), wireless personal area networks (WPANs), radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, and ultrawideband (UWB) communications.

GNSS-Based Attitude Determination

FIGURE 1: Heading, bank and elevation angles of an actual platform carrying two perpendicular two meter-long baselines. The attitude solutions are shown for both the derived, or float, measurements (top), as well as the carrier phase-based, or fixed, measurements obtained after having correctly resolved the integer ambiguities (bottom). Precision differs between the methods by two orders of magnitude. Gray dots represent the two-dimensional projections on each of the three coordinate planes.

Working Papers explore the technical and scientific themes that underpin GNSS programs and applications. This regular column is coordinated by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Günter Hein, head of Europe’s Galileo Operations and Evolution.
