Uncertainties in GPS Positioning: A Mathematical Discourse describes the calculations performed by a GPS receiver and the problems associated with ensuring that the derived location is a close match to the actual location. Inaccuracies in calculating a location can have serious repercussions, so this book is a timely source for information on this rapidly evolving technology. Covers how a GPS receiver works and how the earth is modeled so position data can be calculated Discusses the different signals and clock speeds of the satellites, the receivers, and sources of inaccuracy Examines how the errors are distributed in the data and provides examples

The only comprehensive guide to Kalman filtering and itsapplications to real-world GPS/INS problems Written by recognized authorities in the field, this book providesengineers, computer scientists, and others with a workingfamiliarity with the theory and contemporary applications of GlobalPositioning Systems (GPS), Inertial Navigational Systems, andKalman filters. Throughout, the focus is on solving real-worldproblems, with an emphasis on the effective use of state-of-the-artintegration techniques for those systems, especially theapplication of Kalman filtering. To that end, the authors explorethe various subtleties, common failures, and inherent limitationsof the theory as it applies to real-world situations, and providenumerous detailed application examples and practice problems,including GPS-aided INS, modeling of gyros and accelerometers, andWAAS and LAAS. Drawing upon their many years of experience with GPS, INS, and theKalman filter, the authors present numerous design andimplementation techniques not found in other professionalreferences, including original techniques for: * Representing the problem in a mathematical model * Analyzing the performance of the GPS sensor as a function ofmodel parameters * Implementing the mechanization equations in numerically stablealgorithms * Assessing computation requirements * Testing the validity of results * Monitoring GPS, INS, and Kalman filter performance inoperation In order to enhance comprehension of the subjects covered, theauthors have included software in MATLAB, demonstrating theworkings of the GPS, INS, and filter algorithms. In addition toshowing the Kalman filter in action, the software also demonstratesvarious practical aspects of finite word length arithmetic and theneed for alternative algorithms to preserve result accuracy. An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all theproblems in the book is available from the Wiley editorialdepartment.

Pervasive computing is a model of computing in which computation is everywhere and computer functions are - tegrated into everything. The ultimate aim is to make information, applications and services available anywhere and at anytime in the human environment in a ?uid manner appropriate to our current context. Once away from the desktop, we ?nd ourselves in a wide variety of contexts and hence situations. For computing to be relevant and useful in these emerging situations we must rely on a range of contextual cues. Context includes phys- logical, environmental, and computational data, whether sensed or inferred. In addition, context includes details of a user’s activities, goals, abilities, pref- ences, a?ordances, and surroundings. With location and context awareness we can expect computers to deliver information, services, and entertainment in a way that maximizes convenience and minimizes intrusion.

Industrial assets (such as railway lines, roads, pipelines) are usually huge, span long distances, and can be divided into clusters or segments that provide different levels of functionality subject to different loads, degradations and environmental conditions, and their efficient management is necessary. The aim of the book is to give comprehensive understanding about the use of autonomous vehicles (context of robotics) for the utilization of inspection and maintenance activities in industrial asset management in different accessibility and hazard levels. The usability of deploying inspection vehicles in an autonomous manner is explained with the emphasis on integrating the total process. Key Features Aims for solutions for maintenance and inspection problems provided by robotics, drones, unmanned air vehicles and unmanned ground vehicles Discusses integration of autonomous vehicles for inspection and maintenance of industrial assets Covers the industrial approach to inspection needs and presents what is needed from the infrastructure end Presents the requirements for robot designers to design an autonomous inspection and maintenance system Includes practical case studies from industries
