Averna Adds Telogis GeoBase GPS Routing Functionality to NAVASIM Simulator

Averna has announced that its Universal Receiver Tester (URT) NAVigation Advanced SIMulator (NAVASIM) now includes the GeoBase toolkit from Telogis.

Averna has announced that its Universal Receiver Tester (URT) NAVigation Advanced SIMulator (NAVASIM) now includes the GeoBase toolkit from Telogis.

NAVASIM enables GPS-device OEMs to create complex driving scenarios using a point-and-click interface and a dynamic vehicle model with built-in Tele Atlas digital maps. With the addition of the Telogis GeoBase toolkit, NAVASIM is now able to generate 100 waypoints per second from Tele Atlas map data, according to Averna. This data feeds NAVASIM’s GPS constellation simulator, enabling testers to quickly create high-accuracy trajectories to better emulate all aspects of the driving experience.

Using Telogis GeoBase, Averna’s enhanced NAVASIM provides smartphone, personal navigation device (PND), and in-vehicle navigation system manufacturers and designers with routing functionality that integrates advanced data, including RDS-TMC (traffic messaging). This provides a route matrix the GPS receiver designers can use to solve complex routing problems, including spatial optimization and the integration of custom rules.

“GeoBase provides Averna’s URT/NAVASIM solution with the next-generation of GPS navigation capabilities,” said Newth Morris, president of Telogis GeoBase. “Our technology enables Averna’s OEM customers to create complex and realistic trajectories, simulate the GPS signals received and track the path plotted by GeoBase.”

“The integration of Telogis GeoBase into NAVASIM will benefit GPS-device makers in many ways,” stated Dominique Fortin, director of RF Products at Averna. “By allowing them to test GPS and RDS-TMC signals simultaneously in their labs, it will help save significant time and resources normally used for costly test drives. And by accelerating testing, OEMs will be able to get their navigation devices to market faster, which will boost their competitiveness.”
