Software-Defined Receivers are becoming an increasingly beneficial tool in different domains. The Software-Defined receiver was originally "invented" by the US military to have a unified architecture, which could support all their existing radio-links.
In Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), such as GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and Beidou a software receiver provides researchers with an invaluable tool which can be used to improve position accuracy by processing signals differently according to the reception environment.
We offer several projects related to software receiver design for satellite navigation. Possible topics would include:
- Signal demodulation of satellite signals
- Satellite simulation
- RF Front-end design
- Record and Playback systems
- Sensor fusion with IMU / Vision
Depending on the selected topic, the student must have knowledge of RF theory, digital signal processing and C++ programming.
