At the Institute of Communications and Navigation of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Neustrelitz, we are developing new technologies for the navigation of highly automated and autonomous ships for maritime and inland applications. We want to expand our team, which deals with the technological and scientific challenges of accurate and reliable positioning of inland vessels using Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and additional sensors. This work forms the basis for the development of driver assistance systems such as automatic entering of a waterway lock, which is one of the most complex challenges on the way to the development of autonomous inland vessels. The focus of your work will be the development of a real-time Precise Point Positioning (PPP) algorithm that meets the accuracy and availability requirements of inland navigation. In particular, the long convergence times of classical PPP methods have to be reduced in order to quickly obtain a highly accurate position again, e.g. after a bridge passage and the associated shadowing of the satellite signals. Multi-antenna and multi-sensor approaches are also envisaged for this purpose.
