Trajectory definition has never been easier

Users of positioning devices want to have the best possible experience and often display location on a digital map. SimROUTE is an online tool that helps to optimize that experience by generating route-matched trajectory data from Google Maps®, when testing GNSS performance with a Spirent RF Simulator.

Features & Benefits

Accurate, controlled testing
Users of positioning devices want to have the best possible experience and often display location on a digital map. SimROUTE is an online tool that helps to optimize that experience by generating route-matched trajectory data from Google Maps®, when testing GNSS performance with a Spirent RF Simulator.
Fast, smart testing
SimROUTE can rapidly create road-matched trajectory data for any route definable within Google Maps, and uses real-time route visualization, streaming motion data from your RF simulator to Google Earth®.
Easy access to testing tools
SimROUTE and SimGEN2KML™ are available free of charge to Spirent customers with a valid Spirent Support Service contract. They are accessible whenever you need, simply by signing into the Spirent Customer Service Center.

Visualize Routes with SimGEN2KML

SimGEN2KML is a visualization utility that enables the real-time display of simulated motion in Google Earth®. Available to download from within SimROUTE, SimGEN2KML offers users a detailed view of the simulated location and surrounding features.

Key features of SimROUTE

Speed gauge

Enhanced setting of speed across route waypoints

Allows you to specify speed changes across whole route steps in one go, greatly improving the efficiency of customising routes

Icon

Smoother waypoint transitions

An essential improvement for testing systems with Dead Reckoning INS inputs, as it removes unnecessary high-rate jerk parameters present at some waypoint transitions

Pause icon

Pause motion along the route

Simulate stationary periods in a route—i.e., to replicate stop light, bus stops or other cases where the vehicle is stationary for a period of time

Points along a route

Drag-and-drop route changes

Quickly and easily change the route

Point on map

Journey distance and time summaries

A useful feature for comparing odometer measurements against real trajectory parameters

Car icon

Different motion options

Choose between ‘car’, ‘public transport’ and ‘pedestrian’ motion

Additional features

  • Generate a road-matched trajectory from and to any address that can be geo-coded by the Tele-Atlas/Google Maps database
  • Display the simulated device position in Google Earth in real-time, with SimROUTE's SimGEN2KML utility
  • Specify up to 20 waypoints to allow rerouting along specific roads
  • Display waypoints and route steps (sections of the route between two waypoints)
  • Modify the road speed for each route step, with smoothed transitions at waypoints
  • Generate and download a fully-interpolated Spirent User Motion File (UMT)
  • Generate and download a KML Google Earth trajectory visualisation file
