Navigation and Position Integrity for Inland Marine Transport Vessels

Leaders:  Dr.-Ing. Tobias Kersten, Dipl.-Ing. Franziska Kube, Dipl.-Ing. Le Ren
Year:  2017
Lifespan:  WiSe 2017 - SoSe 2018
Is Finished:  yes

Topics

  • GNSS-Signal quality on marine inland vessels
  • Navigation of marine inland vessels and signal challenges due to bridge
  • approaches like, e.g., virtual receiver (VirtRX) and kinematic baseline (KinBL) in
  • combination with additional sensors (IMU) for inland marine vessel navigation (IVN)

Questions

  • analyzing GNSS-Signal interruption / distortion by bridges (receiver quantities andqualities)
  • data combination and evaluation of GNSS and INS (Inertial Navigation Systems) for static/kinematic approaches
  • elaborate GNSS-Signal quality for marine applications (surface reflections, resistance versus ship geometry, etc.

Applications

  • commercial software like, e.g. Leica LGO 8.3/8.4 and Novatel’s GrafNav
  • coding own applications in Matlab (IfE-GNSS TBX V6.1) or other languages
  • reference trajectories and verification by (tightly) coupled GNSS/INS and other solutions (PPP, DGNSS, GPPS from SAPOS, ...)
  • references frames (ETRF, ITRF, local body system, etc.)
