Perceived Environment Aided GNSS Single Point Positioning: An Example Using LiDAR Scanner

GNSS positioning is strongly challenged in urban canyon areas. The signal reflection induces multipath and non-light-of-sight (NLOS). These signal blockages and reflections are caused by the obstacles of signal transmission between the satellites and receiver.
