Abstract

Integrating the precise GPS carrier phases and INS sensor technologies is a methodology that has been applied indispensably in those application fields requiring accurate and reliable position, velocity, and attitude information. However, conventional integration approaches with a single GPS reference station may not fulfil the demanding performance requirements, especially in the position component, when the baseline length between the reference station and mobile user’s GPS receiver is greater than a few tens of kilometres. This is because their positioning performance is primarily dependent on the common mode of errors of GPS measurements. To address this constraint, a novel GPS/INS integration scheme using multiple GPS reference stations is proposed here that can improve its positioning accuracy by modelling the baseline-dependent errors. In this paper, the technical issues concerned with implementing the proposed scheme are described, including the GPS network correction modelling and integrated GPS/INS filtering. In addition, the results from the processing of the simulated measurements are presented to characterise the system performance. As a result, it has been established that the integration of GPS/INS with multiple reference stations would make it possible to ensure centimetre-level positioning accuracy, even if the baseline length reaches about 100 km.
