Utilization of Wavelet Packet Sensor De-noising for Accurate Positioning in Intelligent Road Services
Recently, smart cities functionality and management have captured notable consideration. Owing to the rapid development in the information and communication technologies (ICT), various applications and services are highly engaged in the cities' operation. Specifically, intelligent road services as traffic management, driver behavior assessment and crowdsensing based road condition monitoring contribute towards better operability. To sustain decent performance of these applications, accurate and continuous positioning is an essential concern. Generally, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers are vulnerable to partial or complete outages due to multipath or signal blockage. Consequently, inertial navigation systems integrated with GNSS receivers are affected by inertial sensors noises and biases. In this paper, we apply wavelet packet de-nosing to eliminate noises of the Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) grade inertial sensors. Afterwards, we integrate the de-noised reduced inertial sensor system (RISS) with GNSS receivers in real road experiment to assess the system performance. In addition, we show the significance ofthe proposed integration over the conventional one during multiple GNSS outages under various driving scenarios.
