Easier Access to GNSS Positioning Performance

Easier Accessibility to GNSS Positioning Performance

u-blox, has introduced a collection of items and function enhancements that streamline access to trusted centimeter-level positioning precisions for the industrial navigating and also robotics markets. The updated ZED-F9P high precision global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receiver component as well as the corresponding NEO-D9S and also NEO-D9C GNSS adjustment data receivers use consumers extraordinary adaptability in setting up scalable options for their specific use situation, consisting of robot lawnmowers, unmanned autonomous automobiles (UAV), and semi-automated or totally automated equipment.

New correction solution receivers provide wide geographical coverage throughout Europe, the continental US, and Japan

The software-upgraded u-blox ZED-F9P-04B high precision GNSS receiver is the first to support a safe and secure SPARTN GNSS correction information layout. It even more links flawlessly to two new GNSS modification solution receiver components that stream correction information from interaction satellites: The u-blox NEO-D9S will initially cover the European as well as US markets prior to rolling out to the other areas of the world. Meanwhile, the u-blox NEO-D9C will certainly cover Japan.

NEO-D9S receives correction information making use of the SSR SPARTN information format over the satellite L-band channel. It utilizes cryptography to firmly supply PPP-RTK GNSS adjustment information, such as that supplied by u-blox’& rsquo; s PointPerfect service.

NEO-D9C leverages the subscription-free Centimeter-Level Augmentation Service (CLAS) program over landmass Japan offered by the Japanese QZSS (Quasi-Zenith Satellite System) constellation on the L6 band network.

While u-blox GNSS receivers are made to deal with most modification services on the marketplace, coupling the ZED-F9P with the NEO-D9C or the NEO-D9S adjustment data receiver enables consumers to save information transmission price and operational efforts.

New security degree outcome for increased efficiency as well as top quality for robot applications

Furthermore, ZED-F9P-04B uses a brand-new attribute called defense degree, which increases the trust applications can put in its position output. By constantly outputting the upper bound of the optimum likely positioning error, described as the defense degree, the receiver allows self-governing applications, such as UAVs, make effective actual time course preparation, boosting the quality of their procedures.

When it comes to robotic lawnmowers, the enhanced precision and reliability of the position will, for instance, allow to do away with border cables, which today are buried under the grass to delimit the mowing area. In addition, it will enable lawnmowers to systematically cover a story based on a digital map, rather than the random mowing technique that is commonly used today.

Bringing high accuracy positioning to the mass market

“& ldquo; At u-blox, we & rsquo; ve long been concentrated on making high accuracy positioning modern technology extra accessible for mass market applications. The ZED-F9P-04B together with the NEO-D9S as well as NEO-D9C GNSS correction data receivers all contribute to this objective by streamlining the design-in of safe high accuracy positioning, decreasing its total price of possession, as well as unifying the marketplaces for GNSS improvement solutions,” & rdquo; says Alex Ngi, Product Manager Positioning at u‑‑ blox.

First examples of these products are available today, in specialist and automobile quality. The adjustment information receivers will certainly be readily available in auto quality for the auto markets.
