High Precision IoT Device for Mobile 5G network localization


5G (ENCQOR) Technology Development Challenge for SMEs

High Precision IoT Device for Mobile 5G network localization

Challenge Launch Date:

August 17th, 2020

Challenge Deadline: 

September 18, 2020

Challenge Statement:

High Precision IoT Device for Mobile 5G network localization.

Project Partner:

Ericsson Canada Inc.


Expect the project execution to start Oct 1 and completed by Feb 28

Available Funding:

60 000$ CAD

Applicant Type:

SME with less 500 employees registered in Quebec with IoT Device Hardware and Software expertise


At SME location in Quebec with 5G testing -as needed- in one of ENCQOR 5G Hubs in MTL or QC..

Project Details:

High Precision Localization (<1m accuracy) is an important capability to be integrated into IoT devices. It will unlock many industrial use cases by providing detailed location information of how people and things move.

This challenge looks for IoT device companies to devise new/improve existing IoT device products to incorporate high precision localization capability into those devices.

Use cases can cover low mobility with no external power source as well as high mobility with external power source scenarios.

Project Goals/Outcomes:

  • IoT Devices hardware and software that can work with a high precision network solution
  • Small volume IoT test devices

Applicant Capabilities:

  • IoT device design and manufacturing companies that can provide full-stack device side solution and product.
  • Has experience with 3GPP based network localization protocol, A-GNSS, and High Precision GNSS.

Additional Information:

  • Additional project phases may be added pending outcome
  • It is highly recommended that interested SMEs participate to one of the free 5G trainings offered by ENCQOR as available (https://quebec.encqor.ca/formations/)

How to participate:

  • Each SME interested to participate to this challenge must have an iPaaS access (free) in order to understand the 5G technological stacks they will work with for the challenge. SMEs with no iPaaS access need to apply here and select ‘Ericsson call for projects (High Precision IoT Device)’ in the first drop down menu
  • Selected SMEs will be invited for a live demo/presentation with the project owners
