Analyzing Android GNSS Raw Measurements Flags Detection Mechanisms for Collaborative Positioning in Urban Environment

Abstract : The release of Android GNSS raw measurements, in late 2016, unlocked the access of smartphones’ technologies for advanced positioning applications. Recently, smartphones’ GNSS capabilities were optimized with the release of multi-constellation and multi-frequency GNSS chipsets. In the last few years, several papers studied the use of Android raw data measurements for developing advanced positioning techniques such as Precise Point Positioning (PPP) or Real-Time Kinematic (RTK), and quantified those measurements compare to high-end commercial receivers. However, characterizing different smartphone models and chipset manufacturers in urban environment remains an unaddressed challenge. In this paper, a thorough data analysis will be conducted based on a data collection campaign that took place in Toulouse city center. Collaborative scenarios have been put in place while navigating in deep urban canyons. Two vehicles were used for this experiment protocol, equipped with high-end GNSS receivers for reference purposes, while seven smartphones were tested. Android algorithms reliability of both the multipath and cycle slip flags were investigated and evaluated as potential performance parameters. Our study suggests that their processing may differ from one brand to another, making their use as truthful quality indicators for collaborative positioning yet open to debate.
