||GPS Fundamentals and Algorithms
||February 1 - June 30
- To enable the students to perform an analysis and advanced use of basic GPS equipment (hardware and/or software), both with respect to design and functionality
- To give the student a comprehension of the available GPS observations and algorithms for processing them to obtain estimates of position and velocity
- To provide the student with a comprehension of coordinate frames and systems
- To enable the student to perform simulation of components in GPS
||The project is to be based on a specific GPS application.
GPS is analyzed with respect to the chosen application and a block diagram
is established. One sub-problem is selected for thorough investigation. Essential parts
of GPS are modeled via establishment of a simulation model. A simulation
model is created for those parts of GPS that are relevant to the chosen
problem. Different solution strategies are investigated and compared. The chosen
solution is to be implemented and tested, either by computer simulation,
digital signal processor implementation or dedicated hardware.
