Road navigation using multiple dissimilar environmental features

May 23, 2017By

New navigation paradigms combining GNSS and inertial with additional sensors can increase overall reliability and power robust road navigation. A feasibility study tests a barometer, a magnetometer and a camera looking at road signs, and concludes that such sensors examining environmental features can supply the necessary context for frequently traveled or shared routes. read more

Navilock’s new GNSS receivers use u-blox untethered dead reckoning

February 8, 2017By

The untethered 3D dead-reckoning GNSS module NEO-M8U by u-blox is at the core of Navilock’s new GNSS receiver series for service vehicles. The new portfolio will enable retrofitting of dead-reckoning and untethered dead-reckoning (UDR) technology in any vehicle. Combining multi-GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo) with an onboard 3D gyro/accelerometer, the untethered dead-reckoning technology improves position accuracy even where GNSS signals are weak or... read more

Telit autonomous nav module uses internal sensors, GNSS

November 7, 2016By

Telit has announced the commercial availability of the SL869-3DR, a GNSS module for global use that leverages information from internal gyros, accelerometers and a barometric pressure sensor to perform dead-reckoning navigation for application areas such as track and trace and in-vehicle systems. The module delivers accurate position data either directly from its multi-constellation receiver or from a fully autonomous dead-reckoning system, requiring no connections... read more
