GNSS receiver with open software interface (GOOSE)

With »GOOSE« (GNSS Receiver with Open Software Interface), Fraunhofer IIS has a development platform for GNSS receivers that provides access to both standardised and specific raw data. This allows existing GNSS receivers to be optimised or new receivers to be built according to specific needs. »GOOSE« thus forms an end-to-end development chain for professional GNSS receiver software from the idea to product-ready integration in a wide range of applications such as railways, agriculture and forestry, shipping or the automotive industry.

Main features

  •  Improved development process for GNSS receiver firmware: one platform for the complete development chain
  • Digital record & replay of GNSS signals via USB 3.0 with laptop
    • Repeatable tests with recorded, special scenarios
    • Examination of the received signal with e.g. Matlab
    • Manipulation of the received signal with Matlab (adding jammers, spoofers; testing anti-jamming filters)
    • Feeding in a manipulated signal
  • Integration of application-specific software in the receiver
  • Access to all relevant raw data (white-box approach) - for an improved positioning solution
  • Enabling sensor data fusion, including ultratightly coupled or deeply coupled
  • Highly accurate positioning in real time with update rate up to 25 Hz Raw data output (code, carrier, navigation data)
  • Open software interface (Application Programming Interface API)
    • Evaluation of raw data with Python
    • Compute own position solution (multi-frequency, RTK, PPP, loose and tight coupling of sensors) on GOOSE
    • Closing the control loop with own filters (higher order filters, Kalman filters, adaptive filters, vector tracking, deep coupling) in real time
    • (Further) development of Open Service Navigation Message Authentication (OSNMA)
  • Support of a position/RTK solution (RTKLIB) as an application example
  • Provision of »GOOSE« for evaluation for half a year

Cooperation opportunities

  • Customised hardware architecture
  • Application-specific re-design and sensor adaptation
  • Customised algorithms and system software
  • Integration of power supply and charging electronics
  • Integration of a communication module
  • EMC adaptations and testing
  • Commissioning and testing of product prototypes
  • Product development
  • Housing production
