The need for satellite-independent navigation is growing

With the support of Saab, doctoral student Jouko Kinnari is researching how positioning would be possible without satellite positioning systems.
Drone-aided network communications

Demands for positioning reliability increase as the use of new applications, such as autonomous transport robots, becomes more widespread. However, there are still challenges in satellite positioning technology: for example, tall buildings and vegetation block the signal from the satellite to the position receiver and receiver interference is possible.

Kinnari is exploring how unmanned aerial vehicles can locate themselves using camera and inertial measurement systems, making them independent of satellite positioning systems.

Kinnari discusses his research with Professor Ville Kyrki in a video:
