GNSS and inertial technologies, once competitors, now appear frequently within the same integrated system design: in commercial and military aircraft landing systems; ship navigation; car and truck stability, guidance and control; anywhere that uninterrupted continuous positioning technology is required.

Integration presents a number of unique challenges, which were discussed in a February 28 live webcast sponsored by Inside GNSS and NovAtel.

During the technical presentation, the 400 system integrators, manufacturers and other GNSS professionals listening in were polled on the topic, with these results:  

>>What do you see as the largest challenge with integrating inertial data with other sensors/systems?
Defining models for the inertial sensor errors, 48%; availability (or unavailability) of other sensors/systems, 25%; handling inertial error failures, 15%; and other, 12%.
>>What are the top two aspects of GNSS/INS that limits the use of it in your applications?
Cost, 63%; complexity of use, 39%; size/weight,32%; position accuracy, 31%; attitude accuracy, 27%.

In a post-event survey of webinar viewers, 85 percent indicated “above” or “exceeded expectations” and nearly all - 97 percent - said that the presentation either met, was above, or exceeded their expectations.
