Schlieren, Switzerland – January 8th 2024 — Fixposition, pioneers of Vision-RTK positioning technology, will showcase the Vision-RTK 2 at the upcoming World FIRA 2024, scheduled from February 6-8. A groundbreaking solution that propels the future of autonomy for agricultural robots and autonomous machinery. In an era where robotic technology plays a pivotal role, Fixposition's Vision-RTK 2 stands out as a cost-efficient and accurate real-time global positioning system, even in GNSS-degraded areas.
Agricultural robots and autonomous machinery encounter unique challenges:
- Dynamic environment conditions (outdoor – indoor positioning)
- Areas with degraded or limited GNSS connectivity.
Fixposition addresses these challenges by providing robust and precise positioning technology, ensuring the seamless operation of autonomous equipment across diverse landscapes.
Vision-RTK 2: The Future of Positioning Technology
Fixposition's flagship vision-RTK technology, the Vision-RTK 2, represents a fusion of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), inertial measurement units (IMU), and visual odometry. This innovative combination delivers unparalleled real-time global positioning, distinguishing it from traditional systems heavily reliant on IMU for dead reckoning. The Vision-RTK 2's multidisciplinary approach enhances reliability and operational scope, even in GNSS-compromised situations.
Peter Mardaleichvili, Fixposition's Head of Product Management, emphasizes the unique advantages of their system, stating, "Our integration of camera systems sets us apart, eliminating time-dependent drift common in other solutions, especially in GNSS-challenged environments. Our user-friendly approach accelerates market entry, showcasing our innovative edge."
Ease of Integration and Deployment
The Vision-RTK 2 is designed for quick adoption in robotic and autonomous systems, featuring a Starter Kit that includes the sensor, mounting system, Wi-Fi, and GNSS-RTK antennas. This ready-to-use package comes with comprehensive guidance and dedicated support, ensuring a swift setup time.
"Our web interface simplifies sensor configuration and performance monitoring," says Mardaleichvili. "This user-friendly aspect accelerates our clients' market entry, but the true testament of our system's capabilities is witnessing it in action."
