Role in the project

Rohde & Schwarz has a large experience of cooperation with all the partners for testing the most telematics and antenna products equipped on vehicles.

Rohde & Schwarz will provide the proper RF test equipment and lab environment for the antenna plus GNSS high-precision receiver testing and validation for the different frequencies L1/E1, L5/E5, and E6 and GNSS signals.

Rohde & Schwarz will analyse the effect of the different antenna designs in the reference high precision receivers (RTK & PPP) and will evaluate the system performance (antenna + receiver) in a controlled conducted and OTA environment.

The developed tools by Rohde will improve quality, performance, and reliability.
