GNSS for Vehicle Controlby David M. Bevly
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Bevly (mechanical engineering, Auburn U.) and Cobb, who makes global positioning system (GPS) receivers and pseudolites (pseudo satellites--ground stations sending satellite-like signals), explore how GPS and other global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) are increasingly being used to control ground vehicles from automatically steered farm tractors to automated mining equipment as well as unmanned military ground vehicles. After surveying GNSS and other navigation sensors, they discuss vision aided navigation systems, vehicle modeling, navigation systems, vehicle dynamic estimation using GPS, GNSS control of ground vehicles, and pseudolites for vehicle navigation.

As global navigation satellit systems (GNSS) such as GPS have grown more pervasive, the use pf GNSS to automatically control ground vehicles has drawn increasing interest. This cutting edge resource offers a thorough understanding of this emerging application area of GNSS. Written by highly-regarded authorities in the field, this unique reference covers a wide range of key topics, including ground vehicles models, psuedolites, highway vehicle control, unmanned ground vehicles, farm tractors, and construction equipment. The book is supported with over 150 illustrations and more then 180equations.
