|Abstract:||Generally, GNSS receiver’s measurement noise is assumed to be Gaussian distribution. However, be subject to various noise sources, the measurements from low-cost devices do not follow the Gaussian white noise assumption used in Kalman filter which often show strong characteristics of colored noise especially in challenging environment. Many of the involved noises such satellite clock error and multipath are presented as time-correlated. To deal with this problem, an approach based on colored Kalman filter (CKF) is presented in this paper, which considers measurement time-correlation by a first order autoregressive model and rebuilds a new measurement model for the CKF. A short baseline RTK experiment is performed with a low-cost receiver in challenging environment. The experiment results show that the state variance matrix obtained by the CKF can perfectly reflect the realistic position error, while the estimate of the standard Kalman filter is found too optimistic to reveal the realistic value. In addition, the CKF can improve around 30% of the AR (Ambiguity Resolution) convergence time, and the reliability of AR has pretty high AR ratio in challenging environment.|
