|Abstract:||This paper describes the means for providing enhanced navigation performance and integrity to automobiles within the “Connected Car” program being developed by Globalstar and its partners. The Connected Car program will use the Globalstar satellite constellation and terrestrial wireless networks to transmit and receive various types of data from automobiles. Among this data will be both wide-area (from satellites) and local-area (from terrestrial transmitters) GNSS satellite corrections and integrity information to help meet the demanding requirements for autonomous vehicle operation. In addition, ranging signals from Globalstar satellites will be used to speed up user navigation filter convergence and thus provide lower protection levels sooner than would otherwise be available.|
