Smartphone centimetre-level GNSS positioning research highlighted in international and national media


Research on centimetre-level GNSS positioning on smartphones (see Fig. 1), conducted by Dr. Robert Odolinski (School of Surveying) and Prof Peter J. G. Teunissen (Curtin University, Australia), has been highlighted in international and national media. These media outlets include outlets from New Zealand, Australia, India, USA, Romania and Kenya. An overview of some of these media outlets can be found at:

Robert was also interviewed in the national New Zealand RadioLIVE show (scroll down to "World-leading GPS research in New Zealand" to listen), and the research was also highlighted in the GPS World September 2018 issue, in GPS World Top News of 2018 and highlighted here as well, which is the world-leading magazine of its kind.

This research was originally published in the international Journal of Geodesy.

Figure 1. Precise centimetre-level positioning on a smartphone during 24 hours in Dunedin, New Zealand. Blue dots show repeatability of one epoch data in comparison to precise benchmark coordinates. The repeatability is more or less the size of a one dollar New Zealand coin (diameter of 2.3 cm) in all three dimensions
