  • Publication number: 20210215831
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a positioning apparatus and a positioning method that make it possible to achieve a position measurement with a high degree of accuracy at low operating costs by using a small, lightweight, inexpensive GPS antenna and an IMU. An incident angle at which a carrier enters a GPS antenna is detected in global coordinates, and a posture of the GPS antenna is detected by the IMU in the global coordinates. On the basis of the posture, the incident angle at which the carrier enters the GPS antenna and being represented by the global coordinates is converted into the incident angle in local coordinates using a rotation matrix depending on the posture. On the basis of the incident angle in the local coordinates, an azimuth angle and an elevation angle are specified to obtain a phase difference based on a corresponding PCV, and a PCV correction value is calculated from the phase difference.
