Tufts attends annual ION navigation conference
Faculty and students from the Department of Mechanical Engineering recently attended the ION GNSS+ conference in Portland, Oregon in September. Participants attended panels, lectures, and workshops highlighting research in navigation, positioning, and timing.
Doctoral candidate Liangchun Xu received a Student Paper Award at ION for his presentation, titled “A Compact, Lightweight Sensor to Measure Bearing Angle to a Radio Transmitter.” Faculty and students also participated in the Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon challenge, put on by the Institute of Navigation in conjunction with ION GNSS+. Associate Professor Jason Rife and Professor of the Practice Pratap Misra, along with other volunteers, constructed bicycles for donations to a local non-profit.
ION GNSS+ is the world's largest technical meeting and showcase of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology, products and services.
