Introduction
Introduction

  • Goal is to introduce the results of GPS-route accuracy tests

  • Discuss about the problems encountered while testing GPS-receivers


Contents
Contents

  • What effects GPS-signal accuracy

  • Tested GPS-receivers

  • Test setting

  • Encountered problems

  • Test results


Uncontrollable variables
Uncontrollable variables

  • Satellite coverage

  • Weather

  • Obstacles in route (roadworks, traffic lights, etc.)

  • Although uncontrollable, these can be taken into account when planning testing


Controllable variables
Controllable variables

  • Devices

  • Route

  • Device position

  • Location refresh rate (8s. intervals)

  • Travelling method & speed


Test setting
Test setting

  • 8 tested devices

    • 5 mobile phones using internal receiver

    • 2 external Bluetooth receivers

    • 1 wrist GPS

  • Clear weather



Possible problems
Possible problems

  • Synchronizing

  • Separating sequentially recorded routes from each others

  • Acquiring accurate reference route & map anomalies

  • Battery charge

  • Data transfer (contracts & costs)


Measuring error to reference
Measuring error to reference

  • Different ways to calculate distance between routes

  • The DP-algorithm used:

    • for each actual point count distance to each of the remaining reference points

      • pick smallest

      • sum to optimal distance so far

    • Divide optimal sum with number of actual points within route


Problems with algorithm
Problems with algorithm

  • Given results are better than what’s the actual error

  • This is due to comparing actual points to closest points in the reference route


Assumptions and results
Assumptions and results

  • N95 slider-state might effect accuracy

  • External receivers are expected to produce better results

  • Wrist GPS is expected to provide better accuracy than integrated mobile phone receivers

  • Every device produced accuracy of less than 10 meters


Ranking of tested devices
Ranking of tested devices

  • 6110 2.73m

  • N95-2, open 3.13m

  • N95-1 w/ external (Pretec) 3.61m

  • Garmin wrist-GPS (1s.) 3.69m

  • Garmin wrist-GPS (8s.) 3.75m

  • E72 3.76m

  • E66 5.10m

  • N95-2, closed 6.05m

  • N95-2 w/ external (Fortuna) 6.44m
