Brian Niehfer

With their contribution "Smart Constellation Selection for Precise Vehicle Positioning in Urban Canyons using a Software-Defined Receiver Solution" Brian NiehoeferFlorian Schweikowski and Christian Wietfeld were awarded with the coveted Best Student Paper Award at the 20th IEEE Symposium on Communications and Vehicular Technology (SCVT).

The contribution, originated within the Collaborative Research Project 876 (Sonderforschungsbereich 876), sub-project B4,  deals with a resource-efficient accuracy improvement for Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS).  Implementation and performance of the so-called SCS was quantified using a developed software-defined GNSS receiver in more than 500 measurements with two geo-reference points on the campus of the technical university of Dortmund. Thereby the main objective is to achieve an improved positioning accuracy of objects in order to increase the performance and possible scenarios for relying applications. Examples would be a more detailed traffic prediction by detecting lane-specific events (e.g. daily road works, etc.) or more accurate swarm mobilities of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).
