TCA to test GPS systems for accuracy

Transport Certification Australia (TCA) has announced that it has received accreditation from the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) to test GPS systems for accuracy in speed measurement.

“No other organisation in Australia has been accredited by NATA in this specific area of expertise,” said TCA CEO, Chris Koniditsiotis. “In fact, after realising there wasn’t already an established accredited process to calibrate GPS systems for speed measurement, TCA engaged NATA and passed a rigorous testing regime that resulted in the development of this new expertise subclass.

“TCA is now NATA accredited to test GPS based systems for speed accuracy between 40km/h to 150 km/h. Once a device has been tested it may then be used with confidence to perform tasks such as testing speed measurement systems.

“NATA accreditation is highly regarded both nationally and internationally, and provides a means of determining, recognising and promoting the competence of facilities to perform specific types of testing and calibration.”
