The name of the invention is «Testing Method and Arrangement for GPS Positioning Measurements». Further below you can read a short description of the invention provided by one of our specialists.
“The invention discloses a test method and arrangement for testing GNNS signals in a test chamber. The test chamber walls have transmitting antennas that transmit simulated satellite signals. Dynamic satellite movements are simulated to create a true satellite signal. All visible satellites are considered to create simulated GPS signals across the whole virtual sky. The device under the test is attached to a moving and rotating body phantom located in the center of the chamber. Radio channel properties are modeled according to real-life environments and programmed into a real-time channel emulator and then transmitted to the antennas in the chamber.
The main application areas are sports watches, wearable health products, animal tracking, and any device needing accurate positioning.”
The reference number of the invention is FI 127693 B.
It was a challenging effort and a very important step done by Verkotan specialists, as patent provides a valuable new asset and test service capability and other opportunities for the company’s operation. The patent application is pending also in the USA. Thus, we hope that you will share this joy and pride with us!
