The 3rd GNSS raw measurements taskforce workshop will aim to share the task force members’ experience and progress around the use of raw measurements within android devices.
As of android 7.0, access to GNSS raw measurements has been made available, allowing developers to use the carrier and code measurements, as well as the decoded navigation messages from mass-market devices. This enables the creation of advanced GNSS positioning algorithms that lead to the development of more ambitious smartphone-based services, or access to data contained in the navigation message. Until not too long ago, these data were restricted to more professional GNSS receivers, now they are literally in the palm of our hands.
Several application areas stand to profit from this increased accuracy, such as augmented reality, location-based advertising, mobile health and asset management. The raw measurements allow also to optimise the multi-GNSS solutions, and to select the satellites/constellations based on their performances or differentiators.
