Ellipse Performance Assessment in Automotive Applications

June 8, 2022

Testing our INS/GNSS Accuracy in Different Environments

Our Ellipse-D 3rd Generation has been put to the test. We assessed the performance of our Ellipse-D miniature INS/GNSS in automotive applications and different GNSS environments, testing the sensor’s behavior in real-life representative conditions for an INS. Various tests were conducted over a period of 2 months in the following settings:

  • Good open sky conditions
  • Light urban area
  • Forest Canopy
  • Very challenging and dense urban environment

Two versions of our miniature sensor were tested: one with RTK corrections and odometer output, and one real-time standalone Ellipse without RTK corrections nor odometer outputs. The sbgDatalogger tool was used to record the Ellipse’s data in real time and for post-processing.
Both Ellipse were compared to a post-processed FOG-based ground truth: our Horizon IMU (included in our Navsight Solution).

The analysis was conducted using cumulative distribution function (CDF) and percentiles repartitions to provide better metrics than “industry standard” RMS (Root Mean Square) or normal distributions methods.

About the Ellipse Series

The Ellipse Series has been renewed with high-end functionalities and RTK. The 3rd generation of the Ellipse Series, including the Ellipse-D INS/GNSS, benefits from a 64-bit architecture allowing high-precision signal processing thanks to high-end algorithms.

All the INS/GNSS now embed a dual-frequency, quad constellations GNSS receiver for centimetric position, and higher orientation precision for unmatched accuracy with RTK as standard, without extra cost, and in the smallest package.

Main Features:

  • 0.05° Roll/Pitch (RTK)
  • 0.2° Heading (Dual Antenna RTK GNSS)
  • 1 cm RTK GNSS Position
  • Full-featured OEM package available (17g)
  • Immune to magnetic distortions
  • High-Quality IMU calibrated from -40°C to 85°C
  • Post-processing with Qinertia PPK Software
  • Full Development Kit
  • ROS Driver
