In this paper a new tool developed to evaluate the performances of different Global Navigation Satellite Systems, Satellite Based Augmentation Systems and Ground Based Augmentation Systems for mobile robotics applications is presented. This tool wants to investigate the potentialities of this kind of localization systems within the MOW-BY-SAT project, a new FP7 project funded by the European Commission ( The tool allows on-line acquisition and plotting of data coming from the adopted devices and off-line analysis, with the possibility of evaluating the localization algorithms performance; several test campaigns have been conducted to collect the data and performances have been evaluated in different environments (open space, urban environment) and under different conditions (canyoning, foliage and building masking).
