Transcript of "Gps ppt"

  1. 1. WHAT IS GPS?• Satellite based navigation system.• Based on a constellation of about 24 satellites• Developed by the United States Department of Defense (DOD)
  2. 2. WHAT IS GPS? • Can provide accurate positioning 24 hours a day, anywhere in the world. • No subscription fees or setup charges to use GPS. • GPS satellites also called NAVSTAR, the official U.S. DOD name for GPS

  4. 4. HOW GPS DETERMINES A LOCATION
  5. 5. HOW GPS DETERMINES A LOCATIONThings which need to be determined:• Current Locations of GPS Satellites• The Distance Between Receiver’s Position and the GPS Satellites
  6. 6. CURRENT LOCATIONS OF GPS SATELLITES• GPS satellites are orbiting the earth at an altitude of 11,000 miles.• The orbits, and the locations of the satellites, are known in advance.• GPS receivers store this orbit information for all of the GPS satellites in an ALMANAC*. * THE ALMANAC IS A FILE WHICH CONTAINS POSITIONAL INFORMATION FOR ALL OF THE GPS SATELLITES
  7. 7. • All 24 satellites are divided into 6 parts.• There are 4 satellites in each part.• A definite orbit is defined for each part.• Each of these 3,000- to 4,000-pound solar- powered satellites.
  8. 8. DISTANCE BETWEEN RECEIVER’S POSITION & THE GPS SATELLITES• By measuring the amount of time taken by radio signal (the GPS signal) to travel from the satellite to the receiver.• Radio waves travel at the speed of light, i.e. about 186,000 miles per second.• The distance from the satellite to the receiver can be determined by the formula “distance = speed x time”.
  9. 9. GPS ERROR BUDGETDifferent errors can cause a deviation of +/- 50 -100 meters from the actual GPS receiver positionwhich are : ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS: • Speed of GPS signal is affected by ionosphere & troposphere. • Which cause a deviation of 0 to 30 m. from the actual position of receiver.
  10. 10. EPHEMERIS ERRORS:• The predicted changes in the orbit of a satellite.• Which cause a deviation of 0 to 5 m. from the actual position of receiver CLOCK DRIFT: • Due to different code generations in satellite and receiver simultaneously. • Which cause a deviation of 0 to 1.5 m. from the actual position of receiver
  11. 11. MULTIPATH:• Bouncing of GPS signal due to a reflecting surface before reaching to receiver antenna.• Which cause a deviation of 0 to 1 m. from the actual position of receiver
  12. 12. MEASURING GPS ACCURACYThe geometry of the constellation is evaluated byDilution Of Precision, or DOP .DOP
  13. 13. INCREASING ACCURACY OF GPS• Differential correction provides accuracy within 1-5 m.• Coarse Acquisition receiver provides accuracy within 1-5m.• Carrier Phase receivers provides accuracy within 10-30 cm.• Dual-Frequency receivers are capable of providing sub- centimeter GPS position accuracy.
