How do you measure the accuracy of a cm-accurate positioning system? The solution to this problem is relatively easy when you are talking about a few test points. However, it’s an entirely different story when considering fast moving objects in dynamic environments.

 

For this position, we are looking for a hand-on engineer to perform a wide variety of tests (indoor and outdoor) of the Pozyx positioning system, or parts of that system. The various test setups will comprise several electronic measurement systems, actuators or robots which need to be automated to perform reliable, repeatable and efficient tests. Tests include measuring the positioning accuracy, radio range, antenna pattern, device power consumption, wireless signal packet loss and more. For this you will work in the different Pozyx test labs such as the anechoic chamber and use the prototype lab to 3D-print objects or build fixtures for your tests. The results of the various tests will end up in the product datasheets or will be used by the algorithms team as input for new developments.
