GNSS-based Location Determination System Architecture for railway performance assessment in presence of local effects (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Stallo, C., Neri, A., Salvatori, P., Coluccia, A., Capua, R., Olivieri, G., …Rispoli, F. (in press). GNSS-based Location Determination System Architecture for railway performance assessment in presence of local effects

GNSS plays a strategic role on the introduction of the Virtual Balise functionality and the train integrity. Thanks to GNSS, it could be possible to realize cost effective solutions to increase the safety in the regional lines, where the traffic dens... Read More

Monitoring rail infrastructure using multisensor navigation on a moving platform and autonomous robots (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Roberts, S. J., Bonenberg, L. K., Jing, H., Sowter, A., Meng, X., Moore, T., …Bhatia, P. (2017). Monitoring rail infrastructure using multisensor navigation on a moving platform and autonomous robots

RailSat aims to use Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) to monitor and maintain railway assets and its surrounding environment by railway asset owners and/or other relevant stakeholders. The rail sector is looking for continuous monitoring sol... Read More

Investigating multi-GNSS performance in the UK and China based on a zero-baseline measurement approach (2017)
Journal Article
Msaewe, H. A., Hancock, C. M., Psimoulis, P., Roberts, G. W., Bonenberg, L., & de Ligt, H. (2017). Investigating multi-GNSS performance in the UK and China based on a zero-baseline measurement approach. Measurement, 102, doi:10.1016/j.measurement.2017.02.004. ISSN 1536-6367

GPS is the positioning tool of choice for a wide variety of applications where accurate (cm level or less) positions are required. However GPS is susceptible to a variety of errors that degrade both the quality of the position solution and the availa... Read More

GNSS jamming resilience for close to shore navigation in the Northern Sea (2016)
Journal Article
Glomsvoll, O., & Bonenberg, L. (2017). GNSS jamming resilience for close to shore navigation in the Northern Sea. Journal of Navigation, 70(1), doi:10.1017/S0373463316000473. ISSN 0373-4633

avigational error accounts for half of the accidents and serious incidents in close to shore maritime transport in Norway predominantly due to the rapidly changing weather conditions and the dangerous nature of the narrow inshore waters found along t... Read More

Combination of GPS and RTS measurements for the monitoring of semi-static and dynamic motion of pedestrian bridge (2016)
Conference Proceeding
Psimoulis, P., Peppa, I., Bonenberg, L., Ince, S., & Meng, X. (2016). Combination of GPS and RTS measurements for the monitoring of semi-static and dynamic motion of pedestrian bridge

GPS and accelerometers have been broadly used the last decade for the monitoring of flexible structures and bridges, while Robotic Total Station (RTS) has been successfully assessed for the monitoring of slow and dynamic motions. Further experimental... Read More

Detection of UWB ranging measurement quality for collaborative indoor positioning (2016)
Journal Article
Jing, H., Bonenberg, L. K., Pinchin, J., Hill, C., & Moore, T. (in press). Detection of UWB ranging measurement quality for collaborative indoor positioning. Journal of Location Based Services, 9(4), doi:10.1080/17489725.2015.1120359. ISSN 1748-9725

Wireless communication signals have become popular alternatives for indoor positioning and navigation due to lack of navigation satellite signals in such environments. The signal characteristics determine the method used for positioning as well as th... Read More

Indoor multipath effect study on the Locata system (2010)
Journal Article
Bonenberg, L. K., Hancock, C. M., & Roberts, G. W. (2010). Indoor multipath effect study on the Locata system. Journal of Applied Geodesy, 4(3), doi:10.1515/jag.2010.012. ISSN 1862-9016

GNSS has become one of the most wide- spread measurement technologies, allowing cm-level positioning accuracy using RTK or Network RTK. Unfortunately, the system’s major drawbacks are the requirement for a clear view of the sky and accu- racy depende... Read More
