Precise location information underpins much of what we do today from navigation to saving lives in emergencies. Dr Suelynn Choy shares insights into recent advances in satellite navigation technology.
Satellite navigation technology has revolutionised many aspects of the modern Australian economy.
It provides essential support for everything from precision agriculture, construction and mining, to our understanding of the processes of plate motions, all of which require one thing: precise (and accurate) position information.
This technology is also becoming increasingly common and vital to a wide range of innovative applications such as autonomous transport and artificial intelligence.
In this talk, Dr. Suelynn Choy will take you on a journey through the precision revolution of satellite navigation technology and share her work in pushing the performance boundaries.
“Precision is addictive”.
About the presenter
Dr Suelynn Choy's research expertise is in the areas of precise positioning using the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), GNSS atmospheric remote sensing, land surveying and geodesy.
Her research in GNSS precise positioning is contributing towards Australia's planned National Positioning Infrastructure Capability, established to provide highly accurate and reliable positioning information to users anywhere outdoor and at any time.
