Galileo receiver for mass market applications in the automotive area
The automotive sector requires ever higher availability, accuracy and reliability from the position solution. The demands of novel and innovative driver assistance systems can not be completely fulfilled, at an acceptable price, by current GNSS receivers. There is a need for a cost effective receiver so that driving assistance systems can be realised. In such applications a receiver has to deliver reliable and continuous position information even under difficult reception conditions. The project "Galileo Receiver for Mass Market Applications in the Automotive Area" (GAMMA-A) is the development of a cost-effective triple-frequency receiver for GPS and Galileo that meets the future demanding standards of the automobile industry in particular, reliable high precision positioning. A general introduction into the GAMMA-A project, describing the motivation and objectives, the user requirements as well as the market potential is given. Selected core technology studies, special ly, the baseband processing, multipath and interference mitigation strategies, and the real-time kinematic technology are discussed and results and outcomes are presented.
