Hardware in the Loop (HIL) Testing with a GNSS Simulator

The vector signal generator and GNSS simulator R&S®SMBV100A is remote-controllable in realtime and can therefore be implemented into a dynamic HIL environment. The HIL simulator can dictate position coordinates, kinetic parameters, and vehicle attitude information based upon which the R&S®SMBV100A updates the simulated receiver movement in realtime. This application note presents background information and details about operating the R&S®SMBV100A in HIL applications.
