Informiamo che il prof. Fabio Dovis terrà un seminario dal titolo: Fundamentals of satellite navigation and positioning

  • May 3, 14:30-18:30 - Sala Riunioni DIMA
  • May 4, 9:30-13:30 - Sala Riunioni DPIA – ex DIEG


The use of position This course provides an overview of the positioning and navigation based on Global Navigation Satellite Systems, such as the American Global Positioning System, the European Galileo, the Chinese BEIDOU and the Russian GLONASS.  It introduces current systems and presents future systems that are currently under development. The course discusses the concepts behind global positioning, how the signal is used to determine location by a receiver and examples end-user applications. The course discusses the sources of GNSS errors, as well as the modern techniques available for service enhancement. 

  • Day 1 - Positioning and navigation principles - Global Navigation Satellite Systems and signals - Error sources and mitigation
  • Day 2 - The role of the GNSS receiver: signal processing and architectures - Integration of GNSS and other positioning techniques: inertial systems and mobile networks

Fabio Dovis

Fabio Dovis is associate professor at the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications of Politecnico di Torino. He significantly contributed to the creation of a research group named Navigation Signal Analysis and Simulation – NavSAS -, specializing the telecommunication skills in the satellite navigation field. The group is currently a joint group of Politecnico di Torino and Istituto Superiore Mario Boella and it is currently composed of 30 people (professors, researchers, Ph.D students). 

Research activities 

The research interests cover many fields of signal processing and communications, and are currently mainly focused on the satellite navigation and positioning systems.
