The Complexity Problem in Future Multisensor Navigation and Positioning Systems: A Modular Solution
Abstract
Navigation and positioning system users are demanding greater accuracy and reliability in ever more challenging environments. This is driving a wave of rapid innovation, with the result that multisensor integrated navigation systems will become much more complex. This introduces a number of problems, including how to find the necessary expertise to integrate a diverse range of technologies, how to combine technologies from different organisations that wish to protect their intellectual property, and how to incorporate new navigation technologies and methods without having to redesign the whole system. It also makes it desirable to share development effort over a range of different applications. To address this, the feasibility of a modular approach to the design and development of multisensor integrated navigation and positioning systems is analysed. Assessments of the requirements of different user communities and the adaptability of the different navigation and positioning technologies to different contexts and requirements are presented. Based on this, the adoption of an open interface standard for modular integration is recommended and the issues to be resolved in developing that standard are outlined.
