The Second Integration Week is taking place this week (15-19 October 2018) in France, hosted at the UTC – Université de Technologie de Compiègne‘s facilities. The integration tests encompass new releases of the algorithms and middleware software, as well as the use of a new camera model, the one used in the final platform. Beyond the functional tests, the engineers are completing the performance results obtained so far on a test vehicle, a full-electric Renault Zoe (see photo 1). Our team from FICOSA, GMV, Renault and UTC (see photo 2) is working hard to test the whole system!
During the First Integration Week in July 2018, FICOSA, GMV and Renault teams met with the UTC scientists at the UTC Innovation Center for a full suite of tests of the interfaces of the hardware and software prototypes of the ESCAPE GNSS Engine – EGE board mounted on our test vehicle (see photo 3).
These tests are extremely important to expose the EGE prototype to various operational conditions, including static and dynamic vehicle (see photo 4), open sky, sub-urban and urban scenarios.
