This article demonstrates that speed measurement with accuracy approaching 0.01 knot is possible by using GPS Doppler data. The method is illustrated with measurements made by GT-11 GPS unit made by Locosys. Introduction Typical approach to using GPS for speed measurement today is to consider a series of “trackpoints” that record position estimates (latitude and longitude) determined by the GPS at regular time intervals. Each GPS trackpoint is determined with some error that is variable and… CONTINUE READING
