The safety critical applications of GNSS in CAV mean that, more than ever, OEMs and suppliers need to verify every development at every stage. From full HiL integrations through to high resolution record and playback, Spirent’s lab test solutions are perfectly suited for evaluating the performance, quality and reliabilty of the latest technologies - giving our customers performance and peace of mind.
Here we demonstrate Spirent’s SimGEN suite integrating with IPG CarMaker, Oktal SE-NAV, and Microsoft AirSim to make the ultimate CAV testing solution.
Hybrid positioning and sensor fusion often require extensive testing to ensure the various data inputs are correlated accurately under real-world conditions. Increasingly, CAV developers are using HiL test setups to ensure systems interoperability. Spirent’s GSS7000 simulator, with industry leading positioning application software, is an ideal tool for supporting this. Find out more about Spirent's GSS7000 simulator.
GNSS positioning and navigation can be degraded in urban environments by multipath, and the error can increase considerably if not properly compensated. The use of 3D models is becoming the preferred solution as it enables greater flexibility and accuracy in both antenna position and signal propagation.
Because of the slow and expensive nature of field testing, there is a powerful argument for replacing a significant proportion of it with an RF Record & Playback solution. This can enable high-fidelity recording of real-world environments, bringing them into the lab for repeatable testing and allows you to:

To ensure test quality and efficiency, eCall and ERA-GLONASS component test regimes must be both highly controlled and flexible. This white paper describes how testing for eCall systems has been developed, and what test approaches should be adopted to ensure components work properly regardless of location.
The low power of GNSS signals on Earth and the widely disclosed GNSS signal format bring vulnerabilities of signal jamming, atmospherics (scintillation and space weather), and location or time spoofing.
An overview of testing GNSS for connected autonomous vehicles
Our blog series will look at four critical aspects of testing PNT capabilities in the lab.
Simulation with hardware in the loop makes testing easier, more efficient and more reliable.
Developers of connected autonomous vehicles must understand the effects of GNSS multipath and obscuration.
Developers of connected and autonomous vehicles must assess how well the vehicle’s antennas receive radio signals.
Developers of connected and autonomous vehicles are exploring the potential of RTK and PPP for precise positioning.
To test repeatably and reliably you’ll need a high accuracy simulator. Spirent’s GSS7000 is available with 3 different levels of software—SimGEN™ / SimREPLAYplus™ / SimTEST—and offers all current and future signals.
Sim3D is a unique system for simulating GNSS propagation in a true to life synthetic environment. Different realistic environments can be modelled— e.g., urban, deep urban, dense forest, or highways.
The Spirent GSS6450 is the world’s smallest high bit depth RF record and playback device, and can offer:
Developed with direct feedback from the Joint Research Centre, Spirent’s new automated eCall Test Suite is a turnkey solution for ensuring your in-vehicle system (IVS) is compliant with Annex VI of the eCall regulation.
Testing against different types of GNSS interference is a key consideration in the development of successful products, and Spirent have developed the GSS7725 to make that more accessible for more businesses.
Because intentional or unintentional Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) are impacting GNSS performance, knowing your RF environment is critical. Spirent GSS200D is a truly end-to-end solution that builds up a complete picture of interference activity at site of interest.
