Spirent, WMG and Chronos Technology Collaborating to Improve Intelligent Vehicle Location Systems

The need for smart devices to have a highly accurate self-awareness of their own location, and the location of other smart devices around them is becoming increasingly important. Many devices rely on a singular location technology (typically GPS), which is one type of the wider eco system of GNSS. These systems, while becoming more capable, still suffer at times from the deployment environment, typically in urban areas where buildings and other cityscape features interfere with the signal.

ESA Trainees Develop Smartphone Apps to View Galileo Satellites

The European Space Agency (ESA) recently ran an internal competition for its trainees to develop an app capable of making positioning fixes using only Galileo satellites. ESA challenged these young graduate and national trainees to develop smartphone apps to perform satellite navigation fixes solely with the use of Galileo satellites. Three teams developed apps in their spare time, presenting their results to a jury of experts from ESA, the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA) and Google.

Lighthouse Releases 4 Frequency Band Input Front-end Processor for GNSS

Lighthouse Technology and Consulting Co., completed the development of a series of front-end processors, “Hibiki”, for software receivers, processing up to four frequency GNSS signals simultaneously. Japanese Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) broadcast GNSS signals in 4 frequency bands — L1, L2, L5 and L6.

Similarly, GPS and Russian GLONASS broadcast in three bands, Europe’s Galileo and China’s BeiDou broadcast in four bands. However, many conventional front-ends process only two bands at the same time, and could not be used for highly specialized applications such as processing multiple signals with different frequencies at the same time.

GMV and Tecnobit to Tailor Skydel SDX GNSS Simulator for Europe

GMV, Tecnobit and Skydel announced last week that they are working to adapt Skydel’s Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) simulation solution to support the latest developments of the Galileo GNSS, synchronizing with the European efforts to bring a modern, highly-accurate and secure positioning system to the market. GMV, Tecnobit, and Skydel aim to provide corporations, universities, and research labs with a reliable, advanced simulation system that closely follows the latest Galileo capabilities.
