ABSTRACT

The introduction of Global Positioning System (GPS) technology has revolutionized the field of localization, navigation, and synchronizing receiving equipment in the automotive industry.

As autonomous driving applications become more prevalent, the requirements for onboard GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) receivers are increasing. Position accuracy, protection levels, high availability, robustness of operation, and integrity are the priorities shaping a new class of automotive components and systems. These systems must be able to operate reliably in a range of environments and conditions, including urban areas, tunnels, and regions with poor satellite visibility.

The aim of the keynote is to guide the audience through the evolutionary path of Satellite Navigation, from GPS to GNSS, introducing the concept of Sensor Fusion and Satellite Modernization for Precise Position target application and to explain the milestones and trends in this sector. The lecture will provide insights into the latest developments in GNSS technology and how it is being used in the automotive industry to improve safety, efficiency, and performance.
