Location improvement by combining a D-GPS system with on-field vehicle sensors

Abstract : For spatially variable field operations GPS (Global Positioning System) location systems are widely used. The differential GPS does not show a constant accuracy during field work. Position errors occur which could have multiple origins : masks near field borders such as trees, multipaths, temporary loss of differential corrections, or change of satellites used in position determination. Methods of combining two sorts of information, D-GPS and relative positioning, have been developed and the results are discussed. Relative positioning or dead reckoning uses on-field vehicle sensors. Position is given by a doppler radar for forward velocity and a digital compass or a piezoelectric gyroscope for heading. In this work, we have looked for improvement of the location reliability of D-GPS systems but we have also tested solutions that give a better location accuracy.
