Sponsored by NovAtel, Inc., the hour and a half webinar featured panel members Andrey Soloviev, president of R&D consultancy Qunav, and Demoz Gebre-EgziabherDemoz, an associate professor of aerospace engineering and mechanics at the University of Minnesota.

Mark Petovello, an associate professor of geomatics engineering at the University of Calgary and contributing editor for Inside GNSS’s GNSS Solutions column, moderated the session. Sandy Kennedy, a senior engineer with NovAtel, provided additional technical expertise for the extended question and answer periods from the viewing audience that accompanied the presentations.

About 700 people registered for the free on-line event.  A list of additional GNSS/inertial integration–related resources is available on the Inside GNSS webinar page.

In a post-event survey of webinar viewers, 97 percent said that the presentation met, was above, or exceeded their expectations, and 85 percent indicated “above” or “exceeded expectations.”

During the live webinar, viewers were able to reply to a series of poll questions on the topic of GNSS/inertial challenges, including these results:
·      What do you see as the largest challenge with integrating inertial data with other sensors/systems? Defining models for the inertial sensor errors, 48%; availability (or unavailability) of other sensors/systems, 25%; handling inertial error failures, 15%; and other, 12%.
·      What are the top two aspects of GNSS/INS that limits the use of it in your applications? Cost, 63%; complexity of use, 39%; size/weight, 32%; position accuracy, 31%; attitude accuracy, 27%.

Inside GNSS will present several additional webinars in coming months, including one on the subject of GNSS and the coming solar max. A previous panel on “Hybrid Positioning and Technology for Mobile Users” is archived and available for viewing.
