Design of Advanced Antenna and Multi-Sensor Hybrid Receiver for Machine Control in Harsh Environment

Objective

"Machine Control is the largest segment of the global high precision (better than 1m RMS) GNSS market. Machine Control applications range from Precision Agriculture to Land and Offshore Construction, relying on GNSS due to its global availability and easiness to deploy and operate. Current GNSS-only technology, although successful suffers fundamental limitations that make it fit only for application in rather benign, open-sky environment. Overcoming these limitations is mandatory to extend the addressable market to application in harsher environment such as forestry, open-mining. ADVANSYS will address this challenge leveraging multi-antenna beamforming technology and multi-sensor fusion in the development of the prototype of an affordable and manufacturable high-sensitivity high-resilience Hybrid receiver concept comprising antenna, GNSS receiver and dead-reckoning sensors."
