Techniques to Improve the GPS Precision

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The accuracy of a standard market receiver GPS (Global Positioning System) is near 10-15 meters the 95% of the times. To reach a sub-metric level of accuracy some techniques must be used. This paper describes some of these procedures to improve the positioning accuracy by using a low-cost GPS in a differential relative positioning way. The proposed techniques are some variations of Kalman, fuzzy logic and information selection. The GPS operation principle is based on measuring ranges of distances between the receiver and the satellites.
