Integration of Software Receiver with
Enhanced Integrity Concept on PDA for Safety
Critical Handheld Applications (SOPHA)  

Development of a GNSS software receiver, running on a lightweight PC platform. 

Brief Description
The purpose of the project SOPHA is to integrate a unique GNSS software receiver on a modern lightweight PC platform (e.g, on a Personal Digital Assistant) with augmentation sensors to support the navigation solution with integrity and a feasibility study of a WLAN update concept. The project will demonstrate its capabilities for personal mobility applications in unfavourable environment such as urban canyons or mountainous regions.

The technical approach will be based on state-of-the-art and innovative emerging technologies from European SME companies which will be adapted, upgraded and modified to satisfy the user requirements for new Galileo technologies and future navigation needs for personal mobility.
