Abstract: Before deployment and commissioning of new positioning products/applications, manufacturers need to perform long and often expensive field trials in targeted operational environments in order to assess and certify future behaviour. The community trust on GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) is so high that more and more safety critical applications based on satellite navigation are under development. With the increase of criticality level of GNSS applications, a relevant means to predict the performances and reliability of future applications is needed. Thus in this paper we introduce a new architecture based on Machine Learning that combines classical observables for local hazard detection, with the outcome of advanced RAIM in order to determine whether a given point of a railway is suitable for a safe and reliable use of GNSS for train positioning.
