u-blox (SIX:UBXN), a global leader in positioning and wireless communication technology, has joined forces with Nordian, a US precision location technology company, to extend the coverage of the PointPerfect Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) correction service to Brazil. This collaboration brings an unmatched and affordable high-precision solution to the promising Brazilian market for GNSS applications.
The u-blox and Nordian partnership aims to facilitate precise positioning for various applications, with a focus on high-precision agriculture, service robots, machinery automation, micro-mobility, and emerging automotive applications such as lane-accurate navigation and telematics.
PointPerfect, known for delivering centimeter-level accuracy, achieves convergence in seconds with an impressive 99.9% uptime reliability. The service ensures uniform coverage on a continental scale. Notably, PointPerfect’s recently introduced Localized Distribution feature significantly reduces user data costs, using 90% less data than typical network Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) services. This combination of low-bandwidth data stream and flexible service plans offers enhanced value for businesses today and easy scalability for future needs.
Carlos Agusti, Sales Director at Nordian, emphasizes Nordian’s extensive experience in delivering advanced GNSS correction services across South America. “Our collaboration with u-blox further accelerates our commitment to pushing the limits of precise positioning technology in South America,” says Agusti. Nordian CEO Michael Schramm adds, “Integrating u-blox’s PointPerfect service with Nordian’s extensive GNSS reference network and regional expertise provides our customers a level of reliability, quality, and affordability unmatched by any other provider in the region.”
Ari Kuukka, Principal Product Owner, Product Center Services at u-blox, highlights the significance of entering the Brazilian market in collaboration with Nordian. He notes, “This marks a pivotal expansion into South America and represents another step in our strategy to globalize the PointPerfect service. PointPerfect is the ideal solution to address the need for high-precision GNSS technology in applications such as autonomous farming.”
