GNSS module is at the core of the GNSS receiver series

 

u-blox announced that its Untethered 3D Dead Reckoning (UDR) Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) module NEO-M8U is at the core of Navilock’s new GNSS receiver series. The new portfolio will enable retrofitting of Dead Reckoning (DR) 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 (UDR) technology improves position accuracy even where GNSS signals are weak or even not available, such as in urban canyons, tunnels, or parking garages. Receivers with a serial MD6 interface can work in an extended voltage range from 5-48 Volt DC.

Applications for Navilock’s new GNSS receiver series include service vehicles from the police, fire departments, emergency physicians, disaster rescue teams and technical aid organisations that require accurate positioning at all times.

Operational forces and their control centers must be constantly aware of their location to enable successful completion of any assignment. As a result, physical dangers and even life threats are clearly minimised.

“We have been collaborating for years with u-blox and highly respect the quality and reliability of its products,” says Karsten Reschke, Navilock Product Manager. “Particularly critical for our product range is the UDR technology that enables reliable and accurate location capability even without satellite navigation signals.”

"We are pleased to be associated with the Navilock brand and the quality and design reliability it represents," says Andrew Miles, u-blox Product Manager. "The ease of use and robust packaging of these products perfectly enable the value of UDR in its target applications."

Launched in 2016, the u-blox NEO-M8U was the world’s first Untethered 3D Dead Reckoning (UDR) module. UDR enables reliable positioning even in case of GNSS signal interruptions, jamming, reflected or weak signals, and is independent of any connection to the car, other than power.
