Fixposition and U-blox's Partner to Expand Global Precise GNSS Positioning to GNSS Denied and Degraded Environments.
The Fixposition and u-blox partnership is opening more possibilities by combining the u-blox GNSS ZED-FP9 module and Fixposition’s Vision-RTK 2 solution to continue to operate successfully in challenging GNSS denied and degraded environments with high and reliable positioning.
Fixposition’s Vision-RTK 2 solution features the u-blox ZED-F9P high precision GNSS module and uses deep sensor fusion technology to provide high precise GNSS positioning performance even where satellite signals are degraded or unavailable.
Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) GNSS receivers integrate GNSS correction data to achieve centimeter-level positioning accuracies in open-sky environments. But like all satellite-based positioning solutions, the technology can struggle where GNSS signals are degraded or completely unavailable.
Today, many applications operating in challenging GNSS signal environments integrate data from inertial sensors – gyroscopes and accelerometers – to determine a GNSS receiver’s position when GNSS signal coverage deteriorates or is briefly interrupted.
The u-blox ZED-F9P is able to deal with challenging GNSS environments, but even sophisticated solutions combining GNSS and inertial sensing technology can drift when GNSS outages last more than one-minute when odometry information cannot be used.
Fixposition’s Vision-RTK 2 solution provides more possibilities, having developed a deep sensor fusion engine that combines the visually sensed data with position data generated using the GNSS receiver. This results in reliable and globally available position, orientation, and velocity data that extends the performance of the u-blox ZED-F9P high precision GNSS modules into environments that are beyond the traditional reach of GNSS signals.
“The u-blox ZED-F9P is one of the best solutions on the market in terms of performance, power consumption, size, and price,” said Zhenzhong Su, CEO and Co-Founder of Fixposition. “Our partnership with u-blox is bringing us one step closer to developing state-of-the-art products.”
“u-blox and Fixposition share the goal of expanding the scope of high precision positioning technology to grow the market and enable new use cases and business models,” said Mårten Strom, Director, Product Line Management, Industrial Navigation and Robotics, at u-blox. “Vision-RTK 2, their flagship solution, opens new opportunities for u-blox F9P GNSS receivers in a range of high-performance industrial markets. We invite customers to see for themselves how a vision system can add to their application’s performance.”
