GPS/BeiDou/INS Performance in Two Hemispheres

A series of road trials in China and Australia uses a new integrated navigation system that fuses GPS, BeiDou and MEMS inertial sensors. An analysis of various distributions of satellites in the constellations reveals the influence of the two GNSS systems’ satellite geometry on real-time positioning.
