What does SatGen NMEA Simulation Software allow you to do?
You can use the software to stream synthesised NMEA data into your target device, replacing the serial output from a GPS engine.
This means you can create a driving or flying scenario anywhere in the world, at any height, and at any speed, and test your device with realistic data.
It is easy to create your own NMEA data simply by sketching out a route anywhere in the world in Google Earth, and then importing the Google Earth KML file into the SatGen software.
The software will then turn your rough sketch into a fully realistic journey, filling in any gaps and smoothing out any sharp corners. This data is saved to a file and can also be output on a serial port at an update rate specified by the user.
If you want to more precisely define your own speed, route and height profile, you can use the User Commands input to write simple scripts which are translated into very accurate NMEA data.
What do you get?
The demonstration software is a full copy of the SatGen software, but is restricted to run for only 120 seconds when creating GPS L1 only scenarios. This will allow you to trial the use of SatGen in your own test facility or laboratory.
Please note that the SatGen v3 Simulation Software requires a 64-bit Windows operating system and will not install on a 32-bit system.
