Communication infrastructure study for precise positioning services in regional Queensland
Wang, Charles, Feng, Yanming, Higgins, Matthew, & Looi, Mark (2009) Communication infrastructure study for precise positioning services in regional Queensland. In Proceedings of International Global Navigation Satellite Systems Society Symposium, IGNSS, Holiday Inn Hotel, Gold Coast, Queensland.
Providing precise positioning services in regional areas to support agriculture, mining, and construction sectors depends on the availability of ground continuously operating GNSS reference stations and communications linking these stations to central computers and users. With the support of CRC for Spatial Information, a more comprehensive review has been completed recently to examine various wired and wireless communication links available for precise positioning services, in particular in the Queensland regional areas. The study covers a wide range of communication technologies that are currently available, including fixed, mobile wireless, and Geo-stationary and or low earth orbiting satellites. These technologies are compared in terms of bandwidth, typical latency, reliability, coverage, and costs. Additionally, some tests were also conducted to determine the performances of different systems in the real environment. Finally, based on user application requirements, the paper discusses the suitability of different communication links.
