Product Description

Description of the host organization

Ubik Geospatial Solutions S.L.

Castellón de la Plana, Spain

http://www.ubikgs.com

Duration in months and preferred period: 

6 months starting from January to June 2021 (dates can be flexible)

Commitment (working time): 

20 hours per week

Description of the work programme / tasks during the internship: 

Develop an app for Android using conventional on-board GPS for positioning in a base map capable of receiving GNSS corrections from augmentation public services such as EGNOS (https://www.gsa.europa.eu/egnos/what-egnos), ERVA (http://www.icv.gva.es/es/web/icv-erva)  or commercial services as SAPCORDA SAPA (https://www.sapcorda.com/sapa-services/). In case of severe delays in receiving GNSS corrections, machine learning models will be explored to predict the corrections and apply them in real-time.

The positioning accuracy of different augmentation services will be compared and assessed for GPS and Galileo running in Android smartphones and, optionally, in iOS devices. Alternatively, the algorithms can be even assessed in a real autonomous robotic system equipped with a microcomputer and a high sensitivity GNSS antenna.
