Modern industrial environments with automated production machinery often require special indoor positioning and localization techniques, due t. The presence of objects and o. The infrastructure that may obstruc. The line-of-sight propagation or interfere wit. The behaviour of electromagnetic waves. These challenges are difficult to overcome b. The widely employed GNSS positioning system designed for use in outdoor areas. One of existing indoor positioning systems ar. The pseudolites, which transmit positioning signals similar t. The ones used by GNSS systems. One o. The sources of errors for pseudolites i. The multipath propagation. Our paper compare. The performances of several multipath propagation detection techniques, using Binary Offset Carrier (BOC) navigation signal and determines that errors increases sharply whe. The receiver uses navigation signals that have multipath propagation. The techniques that we present improv. The positioning accuracy, which leads to more precise industrial processes.
