When satellite navigation meets its limitations

Today’s GNSS Simulation Research seeks for new ideas and algorithms designed to solve the problems still present in satellite navigation. With Xidus GNSS Simulator, researchers can simulate the GNSS signals of the local environments and conditions of their research projects.

Satellite navigation is becoming more and more common. This results in more and more different GNSS applications. It is all the more important, therefore, that GNSS research should investigate these new areas in depth and clarify open questions.

    High and hazardous – the fields of GNSS Simulation Research

    A prime example is the application of positioning in the so-called “urban canyon”. When a user is surrounded by skyscrapers and other high buildings, GNSS simulation must resemble the challenges of a big city. In this instance the actual broadcasted signal is hidden and only reflected versions of it arrive at the user position.

    Other projects of GNSS simulation research can be imagined in the safety-of-life field. During fire rescue missions or other hazardous situations, satellite navigation can provide invaluable support.

    To perform this kind of research a reliable signal source is mandatory. The GNSS simulator should allow users to redo special scenarios and add erroneous influence at anytime. Scalable multi-path simulation is also an essential requirement.
