Low-noise MEMS inertial sensor and systems technology coupled with VELOX high-speed processing are integrated with a 72-channel GNSS receiver from Gladiator Technologies. The devices deliver position accuracy within 2 nautical miles per hour during GPS outages.By Inside GNSS
Bynav (Hunan Bynav Technology Co., Ltd.), a supplier of GNSS high-precision receivers in China’s vehicle testing market, has released two commercial products: the C1 GNSS real-time kinematic (RTK) OEM receiver and A1 industrial-grade IMU-enhanced GNSS OEM receiver, based on its proprietary GNSS baseband ASIC Alita and RFIC Ripley.By Inside GNSS
Autonomy has become the new goal of off-road machine control. Collaboration between NovAtel and AutonomouStuff, both part of Hexagon, has produced sensing and positioning kits to accelerate autonomous development for off-road applications.By Inside GNSS
Power-packed Autonomous Week, September 9–11, swings into action with an awesome Day One, Wednesday, September 9 session on the use of drones in Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR).By Inside GNSS
The family eagerly climbed into the sparkling latest-model SUV and drove off the lot for a test cruise around town. With pent-up demand after months of isolation, they were primed to purchase a new car with the latest safety, efficiency and driver-assistance features. This was it. The dealer anticipated a quick sale.
An extensive and significant body of technical information on inertial navigation, including detailed instruction, technical papers and use cases, has appeared online. This valuable resource is openly available to engineers, designers, integrators, and specifiers working on UAVs, aerial and ground survey and mapping, construction, surveillance and reconnaissance, satellite communications, military and much more.By Inside GNSS
Spirent Communications has released SimIQ, a new software that enables earlier and more efficient GNSS testing during product development. It accomplishes this by extending multi-frequency, multi-constellation simulation capabilities to cover software-only testing needs.By Inside GNSS
MEMS has moved into the high-end market, and the latest disruptor to take into account is silicon MEMS. That’s micro-electromechanical systems based in silicon chips, for short. Accelerometers with up to 100g range and 70µg bias in a very small form factor — 6 cubic centimeters — are exploding the horizons for inertial applications.By Inside GNSS
A revolutionary accelerometer makes possible new levels of stability and control in UAV navigation, at lower cost for the inertial measurement unit package. A free webinar on July 8 focuses on this class of high-performance accelerometers and the expanding autonomous applications they are opening up.By Inside GNSS
We cannot simply test-drive our way to safety. Instead, innovative methods of demonstrating safety and reliability must come into play immediately.
A free three-hour professional training over two days in June aims to show how.By Inside GNSS
A group of Stanford Ph.D. and Masters graduates, with work experience among them at SpaceX, Ford Motor Systems, Blue Origin, Booz Allen Hamilton and other firms, has launched a start-up to start up a low-Earth orbit successor to GPS and other GNSS. The existing services, they say, are not up to the challenges of autonomy. They founded Xona Space Systems to supplant the venerable satnav systems.By Inside GNSS
