The aim of the GSA’s Raw Measurements Task Force is to bridge the knowledge gap between raw measurement users. The GNSS Raw Measurements Task Force Workshops are a key element in this effort, providing a forum for stakeholders to share experience and knowledge around raw measurements use.

A full agenda

On the first day, 27 of May, following a welcome address from the GSA’s Head of Market Development Fiammetta Diani, the opening session of the workshop will include a keynote presentation from Google`s Frank Van Diggelen and an overview of opportunities for Android developers from Justyna Redelkiewicz Musial, who is in charge of LBS and IoT market development at the GSA. Xurxo Otero from the European Space Agency will also be on hand to talk about testing of dual-frequency chipsets.

“Using GNSS raw measurements in Android devices brings many benefits to users in terms of accuracy, and provides access to more advanced processing techniques. The workshop is an excellent opportunity to share knowledge around raw measurement use and ensure that the widest possible community of users enjoy these benefits,” Diani said.

The second session during the first day of the workshop will deal with Galileo differentiators when working with GNSS raw measurements. As an example, there will be a presentation from Carlo Sarto from Qascom focusing in detail on OS-NMA in smartphones. On 28 of May, starting again at 15:00 CET in the afternoon, the agenda will be fully dedicated to presentations from Task Force members, targeting their innovative work using raw measurements.
