Slide 2

Definition of a GPS An arrangement of satellites in geostationary circles used to decide geological area anyplace on the earth by method for versatile electronic gadgets .

Slide 3

Trilateration: How GPS Determines a Location GPS depends on satellite going: Calculating the separations between the beneficiary and the position of 3 or more satellites (4 or increasingly if rise is craved) and afterward applying some science. Accepting the positions of the satellites are known, the area of the recipient can be figured by deciding the separation from each of the satellites to the collector.

Slide 4

How GPS Determines a Location cont. GPS takes these 3 or more known references and measured separations and "triangulates" an extra position. In light of this rule, one needs to know the accompanying data with a specific end goal to process one\'s position: What is the exact area of 3 or more known focuses (GPS satellites)? What is the separation between the known focuses and the position of the GPS recipient?

Slide 5

Determining Current Locations of GPS Satellites GPS satellites are circling the earth at an elevation of around 11,000 miles. Ways of the satellites versus time can be anticipated with awesome exactness. Circles, and along these lines the areas of the satellites, are known ahead of time.

Slide 6

Determining Current Locations of GPS Satellites, cont. GPS recipients store circle data for the greater part of the GPS satellites in what is known as a chronicle. Radio waves go at the pace of light (around 186,000 miles for each second). In the event that the accurate time of sign transmission and careful time it was gotten are known, the sign travel time can be resolved.

Slide 7

3-Dimensional Location Four satellites are expected to give a 3-dimensional position. Three estimations can be utilized to find a point. Sadly, it is difficult to synchronize these 2 timekeepers. A fourth variable, time, must be resolved keeping in mind the end goal to compute an exact area.

Causes of GPS Errors Atmospheric conditions Ephemeris mistakes Clock float Measurement clamor

Slide 9

Multipath Error

Slide 10

Selective Availability The US Department of Defense can debase the Course Acquisition Code whenever. This will bring about regular citizen recipients to misinterpret positions by up to 100 meters. Differential remedy will conform position to submeter precision.

Slide 11

Measuring GPS Accuracy Dilution of exactness (DOP) is a pointer of the nature of the geometry of the satellite heavenly body.

Slide 12

Using Differential GPS to Increase Accuracy Differential amendment requires a second GPS recipient, a base station , gathering information at a stationary position on an unequivocally known point (regularly it is a reviewed benchmark).

Slide 13

GPS and Canopy GPS recipients require an observable pathway to the satellites with a specific end goal to get a sign illustrative of the genuine separation from the satellite to the collector.

Slide 14

Advantages of GPS Navigation GPS takes route to a larger amount by giving precise position and course data. Has suggestions for wellbeing, agribusiness, environment, route, resistance, and so forth
