This month, the final prototype of the MAGICA antenna was integrated in the SEAT vehicle to be prepared for the field tests, simulating a real installation of the MAGICA antenna within a commercial vehicle structure.
In order to get as much information as possible from the testing campaign, two receivers will be used to collect data simultaneously from two different antennas. One of them is the MAGICA antenna integrated in the vehicle and the other one a reference antenna already integrated in the car. This information will be useful to verify the performance of the system.
To cover several of all the possible situations, the tests will be carried out following different routes corresponding to different scenarios, from rural areas to representative urban areas with lower or higher density of edification as well as the static condition. These scenarios allow testing of different levels of GNSS signals availability.
For instance, in high density urban areas the building locations make the reception of the GNSS signals from the satellites more difficult.
Will the MAGICA multi-constellation and high-accuracy antenna accomplish the high-standards needed for these high-precision applications?
