The easy-to-use Rovers enable Centimeter Accuracy for IoT and Mobile Robot developers using the GEODNET GNSS reference network
PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HYFIX.AI, a leader in IoT Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) hardware and precise location technologies, is launching a new family of Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) Rovers on CrowdSupply. The Rovers are specifically designed for Internet of Things (IoT) and Mobile Robotics using the LC29H module from Quectel Wireless Solutions, a global IoT solution provider. Pre-ordering of the new Rovers will be available on CrowdSupply.com, a popular crowdfunding platform for open-source hardware projects.
The RTK Rover is offered in both a simple USB interface version and a more powerful Raspberry Pi4B Ethernet version with data logging features. The CrowdSupply pre-order pricing is $195 for the USB Rover and $395 for the Pi4B/Ethernet Rover. Both versions provide built-in trial account access with centimeter-accurate precision to the world’s largest decentralized GNSS reference network, GEODNET.
The RTK Rovers are modular and built from core reusable components as outlined in this introductory video and the parts list below:
MiniPCIe card with on-board dual-band, 135-channel, LC29H module
Quectel LC29H Embedded RTK+DR (Dead Reckoning) Engine with integrated 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit
Internal Expansion Board with Odometer/Event Input, USB interface, and Raspberry Pi4B Connector
Ethernet version utilizes a pre-configured Raspberry Pi4 with automated data logging of NMEA, RTCM, and IMU data for Post-Processing workflows
Beautifully Designed Robust Metal Housing
30-day Trial Usage of GEODNET Global GNSS Corrections Service for Centimeter Accurate RTK positioning
Small Magnetic-Mount, Dual-Band GNSS Antennae (Quectel YB0017AA, 5m Cable)
Both RTK Rover versions are supported by open-source software that supports GEODNET network connectivity using NTRIP, LC29H module configuration, and data logging.
Introduced at the Institute of Navigation 2021 GNSS Conference, the Global Earth Observation Decentralized Network (GEODNET) received a best presentation award and has rapidly grown since official launch in early 2022. With over 3000 reference stations online on every major continent, the GEODNET is the world’s largest decentralized, real-time Geo-Spatial Reference Network. The live reference station map is found at: https://console.geodnet.com/map.
The Quectel LC29H module is a surface-mount low-power 135-channel dual-band receiver with cutting edge price-performance. The LC29H hosts internal RTK and Dead Reckoning algorithms. Using GNSS correction from GEODNET or other correction networks, the LC29H dual-band GNSS module achieves position accuracy of 10cm or better in a variety of real-world conditions.
"We are excited to continue our close partnership with HYFIX.AI, reinforcing our unwavering dedication to IoT and mobile robot applications,” said Mark Winton, GNSS Product Manager at Quectel Wireless Solutions. “We will deliver unparalleled GNSS precision through our cutting-edge LC29H Module together with the decentralized GEODNET correction network."
“HYFIX.AI is pleased to continue support of Quectel’s dual-band LC29 GNSS modules and introduce two new easy-to-use RTK Rover kits for the GEODNET network,” said Mike Horton, Chief Executive Officer of HYFIX.AI.
