Development of a new satellite navigation receiver for mass market automotive applications.
The objective of the project was to develop a new dual frequency GALILEO/EGNOS/GPS satellite navigation receiver concept for automotive applications and to push the state-of the-art of GNSS receivers forward by elaboration of relevant core technologies.
The project would consider the FP6 achievements in the development of single frequency mass market receivers and expand and explore these on new features, such as the use of MBOC for the open signal, OS authentication and dual frequency reception of L1- and E5/L5 band for the use in automotive applications, such as driver assistance systems.
Applications for multi frequency receivers have been identified. Examples being: e-call service, ghost driver emergency stop, automatic driving, green driving, automatic lane keeping, lane departure warning, along track guidance, etc. Their requirements with respect to accuracy, integrity, continuity (etc.) have been defined. Markets for desired applications have been described, including advice regarding their market introduction.
Different core technologies have been studied. This knowledge has been used to build a development base and to achieve the necessary performance under application specific environments.
The GAMMA-A receiver is also able to receive the broadband L1C and E1bc and E5a/L5 GPS/Galileo and E5b Galileo signals.
