Using Global Navigation Satellite Systems to Solve Complex Application Problems

Currently, the list of uses for global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) is very wide: personal navigation, M2M, navigation of moving objects, various high-precision tasks. New nonstandard GNSS applications are also emerging.Now, in many industries, there is a "digitalization of the economy", which in practice means the automation of many production and technological processes. It is necessary to apply complex solutions: the integration of GNSS positioning in related technologies. As a result, it becomes possible to obtain accurate data on the location and condition of production and technological objects.

Currently, a number of “traditional” applications of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) have emerged:

- services on mobile devices for a wide range of consumers – car navigators, navigators for walking man, fitness trackers, taxis, etc.;

- personal navigation (smartphones or specialized trackers);

- transport telematics (М2М) – Fleet management system, monitoring of vehicles (movement control, fuel control, monitoring of various telemetry);

- navigation support of various moving objects (land transport, air and water craft);

- tasks requiring high-precision positioning (geodesy, cartography, monitoring of structures, coordinate farming, etc.);

- emergency response systems in case of accidents;

- military tasks and others.

There are new applications of GNSS. This is due to the "digitization" of the economy, production and all areas of our life.

The GNSS positioning results are used in:

- automation of production, performance of works and provision of services;

- accounting of work performed and services rendered.

GNSS positioning penetrates into various information systems (personnel management, enterprise, accounting).

There are problems of seamless navigation and the use of combined positioning methods.

When solving problems of transport telematics, there are problems of monitoring new types of objects, as well as monitoring and control of an extended set of object parameters (which is especially important for special equipment).

This article discusses several new applications of GNSS technology:

- Employee monitoring system in the “Outdoor & Indoor” mode;

- Car monitoring system on the territory of the maintenance station;

- Monitoring system for performers at the airport;

- Monitoring of floating signs;

- Evaluation of driving styles.
