Hence, it will be difficult to trace achievement and certainity in urban canyons especially, when it is in indoors or the receiver is within the metallic containers. This issues can be resolved using the following techniques:

1. Unified dead estimating

GNSS receivers can be improved with censor data, which helps to report distance and heading changes using the last known position. This kind of receivers when installed in automotive navigation systems, which facilitate smooth navigation within tunnels. In addition to this, accelerometer readings can also be augmented by careful consideration of vertical displacement. 2. Compound positioning procedure

In this procedure, you can add parallel system that speculate based on Wi-Fi cells or visible mobile cells whenever the visibility of GNSS satellite is blocked. You will be able to obtain information about a few kilometers distance and it is better than obtaining no positional information at all especially, in the case of useful shipments and vehicles.
