Automated GNSS performance tests on eCall modules

New Products |
From April 1, 2018 onward, all newly registered cars and light trucks in the European Union must be equipped with the eCall automatic emergency system. Before eCall or ERA-GLONASS modules can be integrated into cars, they need to be certified.

The GNSS receiver integrated into the eCall module typically evaluates signals from GPS, Galileo and satellite-based augmentation systems (SBAS) to determine the vehicle position. In an emergency, the module automatically places a call to the nearest emergency call center and transmits vehicle position data and other information via a cellular link. To make sure the accuracy of the reported position as well as a number of other performance parameters are within certain limits, the built-in GNSS receiver has to be tested against the criteria defined in the EU2017/79, Annex VI and UNECE 2016/07specifications.

A new option for the R&S SMBV100A vector signal generator together with test automation software delivers standard-compliant, fully automated performance tests for the GNSS receiver integrated in the eCall module.

The R&S SMBV100A in combination with the new R&S SMBV-K361 option and the R&S CMWrun sequencer software combine well to fully automate GNSS performance tests on eCall modules in line with the EU2017/79, Annex VIand UNECE 2016/07 specifications. All test cases specified in these documents can be configured, scheduled and conducted automatically with this solution.
