The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is one of the world’s leading application-oriented research institutions for microelectronic and IT system solutions and services. Today, it is the largest institute of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and has branches in Erlangen, Nürnberg, Fürth, Ilmenau, Dresden, Bamberg, Deggendorf and Coburg.
One key activity of Fraunhofer IIS in Nürnberg with over 20 years of experience is the development of customized, high precision and secure GNSS receivers and GNSS antennas for specific applications that process signals from Galileo, GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and SBAS on multiple frequency bands.
Galileo Public Regulated Service (PRS) Workshop on Jamming and Spoofing
At a special test area, the German national Galileo PRS receiver »PROOF« was evaluated under different jamming and spoofing scenarios, also in comparison with conventional, non-PRS receivers. In all test cases, the »PROOF« receiver delivered a continuously secure positioning and timing information.
PRoPART: Automated merging maneuvers
When merging and overtaking in complex traffic situations, drivers must pay extreme attention. A lapse in concentration can sometimes lead to accidents – something that automated driving assistance systems work to prevent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, together with its project partners RISE, Scania, Waysure, Ceit-IK4, Baselabs and Commsignia, has made another successful step towards autonomous driving as part of an EU-funded project PRoPART. On a test track in Sweden, automotive industry experts were able to see how well the automated merging solution performed in an impressive live demonstration with a truck.
Mobile Galileo PRS Snapshot-Sensor
The Mobile Galileo PRS Snapshot sensor enables sensor data, location and time information to be determined with maximum security by using the specially protected and encrypted satellite navigation signal (GNSS) Galileo Public Regulated Service (PRS). Using the server-based Galileo PRS technology, the raw position data is recorded in miniaturised and energy-saving terminals and sent with the acquired sensor data to a specially protected PRS server infrastructure for evaluation. Depending on the application, the data can then be retrieved in the online portal.
