Learn about the project Drones 2 GNSS. In a nutshell, the project uses an aerial platform (Drone) to acquire high precision mapping coordinates of the ground by using a novel set of integrated sensors and algorithms, with great applications in most fields of Geo-sciences and Engineering.
Nowadays, Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS/GPS) constitute the standard measurement procedure for many engineering applications, yet positioning accuracy in urban canyons and under tree canopies is degraded as the satellite signal is obstructed. This constitutes a major problem for engineers that have to find time consuming and expensive solutions to gain centimeters positioning accuracy. To confront this challenge, we implement the world’s first UAV that offers accurate coordinate estimation in urban and/or obstructed environments.
