u blox : ‑blox&rsqo;s PointPerfect GNSS correction service brings centimeter-level positioning to the mass market

07/06/2021 | 03:04am EDT

The GNSS augmentation service provides real-time, verified, and scalable high precision positioning solutions to consumer, industrial, and automotive applications.

Thalwil, Switzerland - July 6, 2021 - u‑blox (SIX:UBXN), a leading global provider of positioning and wireless communication technologies and services, has announced the launch of its new PointPerfect location service. PointPerfect delivers an advanced GNSS augmentation data service designed from the ground up to be ultra-accurate, ultra-reliable, and immediately available. The service enables the fast-growing demand for high precision GNSS solutions including autonomous vehicles such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), service robots, machinery automation, micro mobility, and other advanced navigation applications. Emerging automotive applications include automated driving (AD) and advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), lane-accurate navigation, and telematics.

Delivered via mobile internet or L-band satellite signals, PointPerfect broadcasts on a continental scale with homogeneous coverage in Europe and the contiguous USA, including up to 12 nautical miles (roughly 22 kilometers) off coastlines to any number of end-devices, delivering sub-10-centimeter positioning accuracy and convergence of just seconds. Furthermore, adopting the industry-driven SPARTN messaging format combined with the lightweight and secure MQTT IoT delivery protocol results in a real-time, bandwidth-optimized, cost-efficient solution ideally suited for mass-market applications.

Seamless integration and easy to use

PointPerfect cooperates smoothly with u‑blox positioning and connectivity hardware, providing a one-stop-shop solution from silicon to cloud. Because it is based on the open SPARTN GNSS correction data format, its use is not restricted to a single hardware provider, allowing customers the flexibility to optimize solutions.

PointPerfect is delivered via the intuitive Thingstream IoT service delivery platform, an enterprise-grade cloud platform proven to support billions of messages. Thingstream provides a self-serve environment where users can manage their device fleet, optimizing cost and performance through flexible and predictable pricing plans. The service is backed by a full warranty, 99.9% uptime availability, and 24/7 reliability. In-house development of all the technological building blocks ensures expert technical support while eliminating any external dependencies that could otherwise lead to delays.

'PointPerfect seamlessly integrates our advanced high accuracy GNSS augmentation service with industry-leading positioning and connectivity hardware. Designed for increased flexibility, PointPerfect lowers barriers to adoption and supports scaled-up high precision positioning solutions, even in segments where such solutions would previously have been considered impractical. Moreover, innovative delivery options fully integrated into our easy-to-use Thingstream IoT service delivery platform eliminate complexities and allow users to engage more efficiently, reducing time-to-market,' says Franco de Lorenzo, Principal Product Manager Services, at u‑blox.
