Keynote speech: Information fusion technologies inside GNSS-related navigation system
As the development of Global Navigation Satellite System and ever-growing demands of autonomous systems, all-source integrated navigation solutions have become an attractive and challenging topic in both research and industry communities. The keynote speech presents the development of the fusion algorithms in GNSS-related navigation systems, initially it starts from the baseband signal processing algorithms inside a GNSS receiver, introducing the fundamental theory about the receiver technologies. Eventually, GNSS/INS integration algorithms, including loose, tight and ultra-tight strategies, are discussed and compared in details, especially focusing on the mathematical models and practical implementations. Finally, with the newly coming-up sensors, such as LiDAR, cameras and other similar ones, typical all-source integrated navigation systems are proposed and discussed in theory, in the meanwhile, related applications of these all-source navigation techniques are introduced and analyzed.
