Alberding GmbH, a developer and distributor of professional GNSS system solutions, has recently announced the Alberding A07 personal navigator, featuring NVS Technologies AG’s NV08C-CSM high-performance multi-GNSS constellation receiver. The Alberding A07 is a low-cost single frequency GNSS receiver designed for personal navigation and other sub-meter accuracy positioning applications in an urban environment.
The device integrates NVS Technologies’ NV08C-CSM multi-constellation (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, COMPASS and SBAS) L1 receiver with GPRS and Bluetooth communication modules, an RFID reader, and a processor. The Alberding A07 comes with an integrated GNSS antenna, but for monitoring and tracking applications, it is also available with an external antenna.
- Pedestrian navigation and tracking
- Navigation for the visually impaired
- RFID based indoor positioning
- GIS data collection
- Displacement monitoring and alarming
The Alberding DGNSS processing algorithm and Kalman filter take raw GNSS observation data to compute a highly accurate position solution in real time. Position information can then be transmitted via Bluetooth to custom specific applications running on devices such as smartphones. As an example, the Alberding A07 can assist blind or visually impaired people with orientation and navigation on the streets.
