Ka-Raceing

We at Ka-RaceIng annually build three racecars: one with a combustion engine, one with electric motors and a driverless vehicle, which is also based on an electric drivetrain. The ability to accurately locate our cars using a satellite based navigation system is important to us for two main reasons:


• First, our electric car relies on a complex control model that regulates its four motors in such a way, that the vehicle can achieve maximum performance in terms of acceleration, handling and agility in every situation. To be able to do so, it requires precise knowledge of its velocity and slip angle. Information about both can be extracted from the GNSS data.


• The second reason is, that GNSS allows us to correlate specific events during testing and driver training to a position on the race-track. For example, this is extremely helpful for linking errors to their cause, but most important it allows us to analyze the driving style of our drivers. This way, we can provide the drivers with detailed feedback and suggestions for improving their performance. Personalized training like that greatly helps us to improve our results in races.
The Locosys LS23032 GNSS-Mouse serves our purposes perfectly. It comes in a small, yet waterproof package, which makes it convenient to use in lightweight outdoor applications.
Furthermore, it can receive data from various satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS), enabling our cars to drive anywhere in the world with excellent satellite coverage. Additionally, the LS23032 works out of the box without any configuration necessary, but at the same time provides the option to customize its functionality to suit almost any application.

The images on the left-hand side show the KIT17c, which is our car with combustion engine.
On the right-hand side, the electric KIT17e (top) and the driverless KIT17d (bottom) are depicted. All three cars are fitted with an LS23032 on the headrest.

    LS2303x

    LS2303x series products are complete GPS receivers (also known as GPS mouse) based on the proven technology found in LOCOSYS 66 channel GPS SMD type receivers MC-1513 that use MediaTek chip solution. The GPS mouse will acquire up to 66 satellites at a time while providing fast Time-To-First-Fix, one-second navigation update and low power consumption. It can provide you with superior sensitivity and performance even in urban canyon and dense foliage environment. Its far-reaching capability meets the sensitivity requirements of car navigation as well as other location-based applications. These products support hybrid ephemeris prediction to achieve faster cold start. One is self-generated ephemeris prediction that is no need of both network assistance and host CPU’s intervention. This is valid for up to 3 days and updates automatically from time to time when GPS module is powered on and satellites are available. The other is server-generated ephemeris prediction that gets from an internet server. This is valid for up to 14 days. Both ephemeris predictions are stored in the on-board flash memory and perform a cold start time less than 15 seconds.
