Miquel Garcia, a research engineer in the GNSS field and a ROKUBUN's founder, will present a challenge about "Map matching for urban location".
Map matching for urban location
The GNSS signal, albeit specifically designed to be used outdoors, suffers from high degradation of accuracy and availability in urban environments due to the presence of urban canyons (high buildings on the sides of the street). To solve for the loss of GNSS satellite visibility and increase of GNSS signal noise, additional sensors such as inertial measurement units (accelerometers, gyroscopes) or techniques (such as map-matching) can be used. The team will have access the following services: JASON (an on-cloud service to achieve high-accurate geolocation by uploading your GNSS campaign data) and MAPBOX (The Mapbox Map Matching API allows you to take recorded traces, such as the data from a GNSS unit or phone, and snap them to the OpenStreetMap road and path network).
Best project of Rokubun's Challenge
One (1) prize with a three (3) months access license to JASON: for each team member given by Rokubun. JASON is an on-cloud service to achieve high-accurate geolocation by uploading your GNSS campaign data.
Good luck to all the participants!
