Low-cost high-res GNSS technology in combination with RTKLIB for microclimatic monitoring purposes

Track 4 Open Source Hardware

A standalone low-cost mobile prototype with accurate localization capabilities and communicating environmental measurements in real-time can definitely expand the current picture of urban data characterized by limited spatio-temporal resolution. Sensor data enrichment with kinematics, high-frequency and robust positioning data plays a crucial role in IoT devices for mobile microclimatic monitoring application. Indeed, spatially enriched real time kinematic sensors lead directly to fast, reliable and accurate information over-time. This, in turn, allows to create added-value services (smart cities, transportation, e-health, smart home, social, etc.) for life quality improvement of urban communities. The design, prototyping and experimental activities have got funded the DPS4ESLAB project.
