Inertial Breakthroughs Guide the Autonomous Vehicle

The complex and mission-critical needs of the autonomous vehicle market demand innovation at higher levels in several different sensors and in sensor integration. A new photonic chip technology offers promise in providing high-volume, low-cost manufacture of high-end, tactical-grade performance fiber-optic gyros (FOGs)for inertial navigation in GNSS-obstructed environments.

Enhanced GNSS Location over 5G Networks Trialed by ESA

Positioning with 5G next-generation cellular technology, based on higher bandwidths and frequencies, promises to open up new possibilities for localization services. As GNSS receivers share their position awareness across more powerful cellular networks, smart traffic management, asset tracking and personalized drone-based delivery will be just three examples of expanded capability. A European Space Agency (ESA)-sponsored test recently simulated this broadening PNT potential.

25 years of INTERGEO: an Evolutionary Success

When the very first visitors to INTERGEO passed through the turnstiles in Dortmund’s Westfalenhallen exhibition centre on the dot of 9 a.m. on August 23, 1995, even the most wildly optimistic observers could hardly have imagined the trajectory this fledgling event was embarking upon. Although the geodesists conference was a firm fixture in this specialist field, the trade fair—until then billed as the “accompanying exhibition”—with its 185 exhibitors was really quite modest, despite having grown considerably, compared to the event held in Mainz in 1994.

Drotek Releases Sirius RTK F9P GNSS Rover

The new Sirius RTK GNSS Rover F9P is meant to be mounted on the vehicle that’s moving. Whereas the base is supposed to be immobile (even though it can be mobile, which implies a loss of accuracy), the rover is the module receiving the corrections, providing the information to the autopilot with its position, heading, height…
