Sensor Fusion by STMicroelectronics Enables 3D Navigation for Drivers

September 28, 2015By

STMicroelectronics is bringing next-generation satellite navigation to today’s drivers with the launch of enhanced, always-available, always-accurate 3D positioning on its TESEO III automotive-navigation integrated circuits (ICs). The new TESEO DRAW firmware for ST’s multi-constellation positioning chips enables navigation devices to provide continuous, accurate location and turn-by-turn instructions even when satellite signals are poor or unavailable, such as in tunnels, covered... read more

Tallysman TW5340 Smart Antenna Designed for Urban Canyons

November 6, 2014By

Tallysman’s new TW5340 smart antenna is designed to pair Tallysman‘s Accutenna technology antenna with STMicroelectronics’ Teseo II receiver. The combination makes the smart antenna accurate for use in all environments, including urban canyons, according to the company. The TW5340 is a multi-constellation GNSS Smart Antenna that provides simultaneous GPS/GLONASS/SBAS reception. It is designed for use in professional-grade applications such as precision timing, network synchronization, low current applications, and tracking/positioning applications. To... read more

Test Shows Galileo Increases Accuracy of Location-Based Services

May 27, 2014By

The European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Rx Networks Inc., a mobile location technology and services company, announced the results of tests conducted by the company measuring the performance of Galileo when used in various combinations with GPS and GLONASS. Tests were conducted in real-world environments, including urban canyons and indoors. These environments pose significant challenges to location accuracy due to multipath... read more

Spirent’s SimSAFE Fights Signal Vulnerability

March 1, 2014By

By Tracy Cozzens Spirent Communications now offers SimSAFE, a software solution that simulates legitimate GNSS constellations along with spoofed or hoax signals to evaluate receiver resilience and help develop counter measures. Hoax or spoofing attacks work by mimicking genuine GNSS signals, which mislead GNSS receivers.  The military and critical infrastructure — such as wireless networks, banking, and utilities — are especially... read more

STMicroelectronics’ Chips Ready for Galileo eCall Approval

February 13, 2014By

STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor company, has released its Teseo II single-chip satellite-tracking integrated circuit to the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Commission Joint Research Center (JRC) for testing for eCall approval. The testing campaign is coordinated by the European GNSS Agency as part of its effort to accelerate Galileo adoption. The Galileo tests will be conducted by the... read more

Report Looks at Indoor Location Positioning and Mobile Markets

January 8, 2013By

In December 2011, Grizzly Analytics released its first comprehensive report on indoor location positioning technology, predicting that indoor location services were ready to revolutionize the mobile market. The five months that followed have shown how true this was, with new initiatives announced on a regular basis and numerous demonstrations at industry conferences, Grizzly Analytics says. In a fully revised and... read more

Consumer GPS/GLONASS: Accuracy and Availability Trials of a One-Chip Receiver in Obstructed Environments

December 1, 2011By

A one-chip multiconstellation GNSS receiver, now in volume production, has been tested in severe urban environments to demonstrate the benefits of multiconstellation operation in a consumer receiver. Bringing combined GPS/GLONASS from a few tens of thousands of surveying receivers to many millions of consumer units, starting with satnav personal navigation devices in 2011, followed by OEM car systems and mobile phones, significant shifts the marketplace. The confidence of millions of units in use and on offer should encourage manufacturers of frequency-specific components, such as antennas and SAW filters, to enter volume mode in terms of size and price. read more
