Intuitive GNSS receiver evaluation software gives GPS a boost
Global navigation satellite system (GNSS) evaluation software from u-blox, u-center 2, offers advanced features to explore u-blox positioning technologies.
The software runs on Microsoft Windows and is suitable for 10 generation u-blox GNSS technology. It has an intuitive interface to configure GNSS products, evaluate their performance, improve software quality and experience the performance boost achieved using GNSS-related services, said u-blox.
The successor to the u-blox u-center GNSS evaluation software is compatible with the latest u-blox M10 GNSS technology. u-center 2 includes additional features which simplify the configuration, evaluation, and software development of GNSS-based solutions.
It provides personalised workspaces with adaptive windows for a choice of views to observe the connected GNSS receiver’s static and dynamic behaviour. A built-in log player accepts log files from the previous version of the software. It also features message- and time-based navigation and lets users set the playback speed. Updates are automatic to ensure that the software always includes the latest features, added u-blox.
It also serves to simplify the evaluation of GNSS-related location services, including AssistNow, through which GNSS receivers gain access to GNSS aiding data, enhancing startup performance and saving power, claimed the company.
Bernd Heidtmann, product manager, product strategy for Standard Precision GNSS at u-blox, commented: “With its fresh and minimalist user interface, the upcoming quick product configuration designed for key use cases, and optimised data logging, u-center 2 will raise the benchmark for GNSS evaluation tools in terms of performance and user experience.”
u-center 2 is free for download.
