The introduction of the Global Positioning System technology has leaded to a revolution in the field of localization, navigation and in the synchronization of receiving equipments in automotive.
The challenges of positioning today are to exploit the interoperability of available satellite systems, GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, Navic, the management of inertial sensors and the development of modernization of satellite signals to improve the performance of positioning sensors and enable new precision goals.
Autonomous driving applications are raising in fact the requirements for onboard GNSS receivers to new highs. Position accuracy, protection levels, high availability, robustness of operation and integrity are the priorities shaping a new class of automotive components and architectures.
Aim of the seminar is to drive the audience in the evolutional path of satellite Navigation, from GPS to GNSS, till to Precise Positioning and to explain the milestones and the trends in this path.
Domenico Di Grazia has been with GNSS System Team at STMicroelectronics since 2007, where he is involved in DSP Software and Algorithm development for GNSS receivers. He has a Master degree in Telecommunication Engineering from University of Naples, Italy, in 2001. He holds several patents in the GNSS area and previously had experience in software development for Digital Radio receivers and in Digital Video Broadcasting field
