Master's programme (M.Sc.) in GPS Technology
2nd semester

1st semester, 3rd semester

THEME GPS Systems and Kinematic Applications
PERIOD September 1 - January 31
  • To enable the student to analyse advanced kinematic GPS applications
  • To provide the student with a comprehension of advanced signal-processing topics relevant to antenna systems and receiver structures
  • To provide the student with knowledge in system/network level design and optimization
  • To provide the student with a knowledge of scientific methods in GPS applications
CONTENT A kinematic GPS application is chosen. The problem is investigated in depth and a solution strategy is chosen and implemented. The project must demonstrate ability to handle complex problems in a scientific manner. The project should lean itself towards at least one of three key areas:
  • Real-time processing of GPS observations
  • Data links
  • System level investigations, and optimizations
PROJECT EXAMPLES The following list covers examples of 2nd semester projects. Click here to see abstracts from previous 2nd semester projects.
  • GPS and radar
  • Implementation of RTK software
  • Fleet management
  • Precision farming
  • Land-vehicle navigation
  • GPS for geographic databases
COURSES Discrete-Time Kalman Filtering (SE)
