Status: Ongoing

AUDITOR addresses the implementation of solutions that go beyond the state-of-the-art of professional GNSS receivers for precise positioning, while drastically reducing the price of high-accuracy GNSS receivers and making available to the general public the full potential of civil GNSS signals, by releasing the software receiver under an open source license. The solution is not only suitable for static GNSS reference stations, but also for applications such as Earth observation, rapid surveying, precision agriculture, and unmanned vehicles. But the true potential of such software receiver lies in the capabilities of a dense network of such devices. AUDITOR addresses the upgrade of existing GNSS augmentation networks by implementing and demonstrating new techniques in a proof-of-concept prototype network comprising the reference stations, network software and user receiver module applying the corresponding data corrections.
