Third TREASURE school successfully took place in Turin, Italy, 4 – 8 November 2019, with the title: “State of the art EGNSS high accuracy positioning: what can Galileo bring to the table?”
We all know for some time now that Galileo will challenge the existing satellite navigation systems, especially regarding the expectation of higher performance standards. But which features can be actually exploited in real life applications that demand real time high accuracy positioning, such as in the field of precision farming for example?
With that in mind, the program of the school started from an extensive overview of the new features of Galileo that represent the real differentiators with respect to the other systems: the new High Accuracy Service (HAS) and the authenticated signals. But that is not all, the school will also offered an opportunity to students to get familiarized with modern implementation of user receivers, as well as with the booming field of integrated receivers, exploiting technologies such as INS, Vision, COM signals, in addition to GNSS.
The school was delivered through lessons taught by top researchers on the different topics, and also included hands-on and teamwork activities. In the framework of the TREASURE project, the school was locally organized by the Navigation, Signal Analysis and Simulation of Politecnico di Torino, with the support from the Politecnico Interdepartmental Center for Service Robotics – PIC4SeR, which is working on the application of automated drones for precision farming.
The final programme is now available here.
