Simulation environment

Simulation environment

Due to the various sources of errors within the navigation process, a simulation environment based on Maple®, Matlab®, and Simulink® has been developed. This simulation environment provides tools for computer-aided design and analysis of navigation algorithms (see list of publications 2001).

 

Simulation of GPS errors

Simulation of GPS errors

The main goal is to automate the generation of navigation source code. The source code should be used within the simulation environment as well as for the target navigation system which is installed aboard the aircraft. The software tools include coordinate transformations, sensor error models, extended Kalman filter equations, raw sensor data generation, and automatic C-code generation.

 

The development environment contains:

 

Monte Carlo simulations

Monte Carlo simulations
Standard deviation of the position data

Standard deviation of the position data
  • system definition and error model derivation
  • symbolic software tools and interfaces
  • design of the simulation environment
  • error propagation analysis and Monte Carlo simulations
