Septentrio

Raspberry PI Hat/Arduino MKR for mosaic GNSS

Company description

Septentrio is a leading supplier of highly accurate GPS/GNSS receivers for demanding applications, requiring accuracies in the decimeter or centimeter range, even under difficult conditions. We provide chip sets and reference designs, board-level OEM modules as well as system-level GPS/GNSS receivers including advanced positioning software to our customers in machine control and construction, land and marine survey, mobile mapping, drones, rail, automotive ADAS and much more.

Septentrio is headquartered in Leuven, Belgium and has offices in Los Angeles (US), Shanghai (CN), Yokohama (Tokio, JP) and Seoul (KR), and partners throughout the world. 

Job description

GPS/GNSS positioning is becoming a common element in IoT things. Mosaic is Septentrio’s GNSS product which thanks to its small size allows it to fit some of the small computer integrations. The internship will go over making a design and a high-level open source integration for mosaic on these platforms. The work will involve some HW high level design/understanding as well as SW understanding to make sure basic SW is available to allow Raspberry or Arduino integrations with mosaic.

Tasks

Ecosystem understanding:

The intern will get familiar with Raspberry and Arduino addons specially when integrating GPS systems (tool sets, HW, etc)
The intern will evaluate possible companies doing these systems and check existing designs

 Design

The intern will make a high-level design for Raspberry/Arduino (either or both) systems to allow an easy integration in an open source (HW/SW)
The intern will identify the SW elements needed to make the system to work in the easiest way

Implementation/Documentation

The intern will document fully the design and make it available online so that community can adopt the system integration as easily as possible

Searched Profile

Preferred:

Electrical/Electronics or Mechatronics Engineering or similar studies (or SW Engineering with HW affinity)
Basic hands-on HW design (basic PCB design, layout, etc.)
Basic Linux/Windows programming experience (understanding of SW libraries)
Independent working

Optional:

Experience with Raspberry or Arduino
GNSS experience
Experience in making PI Hats for Raspberry or MKR’s for Arduino
