EU funding project “Development of Special Navigation Modules on the Base of Highly Integrated Chipsets”

To offer customers modern solutions and appropriate design techniques according to the actual market needs, NTLAB continuously invests into R&D activities. That’s why in 2018 NTLAB has started to implement EU funded project “Development of Special Navigation Modules on the Base of Highly Integrated Chipsets”

Goal of the project – to provide competive devices for a consumer market which starts to require professinal-level solutions at affordable cost. Emerging markets such as ADAS require higly precize positioning as well as ability to work under any circumstances, including intentional interference to GPS signals from multiple noise sources. To solve the task, it requires to conduct a scientific research, during which products prototypes developed, tested on special equipment under conditions of intentional and unintentional interference, and the preparation for the serial production of the products. This project aims to develop high-precision RTK (real-time kinematics) and anti-jamming (AJ) modules. Currently, existing modules in the market are not suitable for the civilian industry due to their high cost and/or poor technical specifications. NTLAB creates products that are accessible to the mass market while featuring highly precise location determination. During the project, microchips used in module production were improved. The newly developed microchips are characterized by high efficiency, allowing reduction of the final product’s cost and an enhancement of location determination functions.

Goal of the products – to enhance efficiency of navigation devices, increasing the affordability and availability of high precision navigation systems for mass-markets.

Both of these products, which have a unique set of characteristics, are new and will contribute to the solving of navigational problems in different spheres of everyday life in different industries, such as construction, mining, environmental & structural monitoring, machine control & automation, autonomous driving systems, precision agriculture, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), robotics and intelligent machines, land surveying, 3D cartography, air photography. The role of these industries is rapidly growing, this leads to the growth of navigation systems and its components in industry.

NTLAB implemented the project, utilizing given time and resources, maximizing the objectives and results of the application.

The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
