How to speed up research?

LabSat 3 allows you to see how your GPS device would actually operate in the field without moving from your test bench or lecture hall.

Read on to find out how record and replay technology could assist your research and teaching, and how to choose the best system for your needs.

As part of Racelogic's on-going commitment to supporting educational establishments across the world we offer discounts of up to 25% on all our products.


What is GPS/GNSS record and replay?

GPS record and replay allows you to record GPS data from a live antenna and replay it later. This allows you to gather the raw data once, and then replay it into devices under test for research or teaching an unlimited number of times, showing the actual behaviour of the GPS device in the field. You could show how a system would operate in New York's Times Square whilst sitting in a research lab in Cambridge.

Recording external data

Many GPS applications also integrate with other technologies to improve quality in heavily built up areas. However, researching and testing combined GPS and external data is complex and time consuming.

Therefore, it's important to be able to record and replay external data. LabSat conversion modules are available for analogue, CAN, Dual CAN, RS232, and serial streams, to record external data perfectly synchronised with the GPS data.

Testing your systems in remote locations

Apart from replaying real world data, it is sometimes useful to test your application using artificially generated data.

Racelogic's SatGen software creates static or dynamic scenarios anywhere in the world. It allows you to create a data file which can be replayed on a LabSat and means you can simulate almost any kind of test anytime and anywhere.
