Verkotan Patent – Testing Method and Arrangement For GPS Positioning Measurements
✔ 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.
✔ Main application areas are sport watches, wearable health products, animal tracking and any device needing accurate positioning.
