Presentation

Optimize development cycles with distributed Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) test efforts

Today's cars are packed with numerous sensors - GPS, accelerometer, gyros, cameras and more, all designed to sense environments. As the sophistication of sensor components, their control software and connectivity grows there is a need to distribute the test efforts across the players of the value chain. The distributed efforts will enable OEMs and Tier 1s to jointly shorten their PNT development cycle. In this presentation Ajay will discuss a plan to share and distribute validation efforts specific to PNT.
