Recent advancements in GNSS technologies and hardware, including improvements in the quality, robustness and quick convergence of real-time PPP algorithms and the advent of the IGS Real-Time-Service (RTS), provide exciting opportunities for present and future applications of GNSS. Over the past decades, there has been a growing demand for precise, real-time positioning and timing services in a variety of different fields including structural health monitoring, intelligent transport systems and services, autonomous vehicle navigation, maritime applications, railway infrastructure monitoring, geohazards warning systems, deep-sea and space explorations and many more.
This Special Issue of Remote Sensing aims to provide a platform for researchers to publish innovative work that pushes the boundaries of the utilization of real-time GNSS in a variety of applications. For instance, integration of precise GNSS positioning with BIM, digital twinning, artificial intelligence, Cloud and Edge Computing and other modern information technologies can be applied in intelligent infrastructure construction, intelligent operation and maintenance, safety risk control, geological disaster monitoring and so on. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- GNSS Precise Positioning Applications in Geodesy
- Precise Non-linear Motion Modelling of GNSS Reference Stations and Their Physical Mechanisms
- Aided Real-time GNSS Precise Positioning Services and Sensor Fusion in Challenging Environments
- Identification of GNSS Error Sources and Mitigation Mechanisms
- GNSS Augmentation Systems and Integrity Monitoring
- Real-time GNSS Precise Positioning Services with Smartphones
- Low-Cost High Performance Real-time GNSS Positioning for Geohazard Monitoring of Volcano, Earthquake, Subsidence and Landslide
- Integrated Applications of Real-time GNSS Precise Positioning Services, High-definition Mapping and 5G for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
- GNSS Precise Positioning Service for Integrated Applications of BIM and Digital Twin in Intelligent Construction, Operation and Maintenance of Large Infrastructure
- GNSS Precise Positioning Services for Emerging Scientific, Engineering, Environmental and Mass-market Applications
