To provide a total solution of high precision positioning for autonomous cars and virtual reality (VR), u-blox, a Swiss company that creates wireless semiconductors and modules for consumer, automotive and industrial markets, has launched its latest high precision positioning technology platform, u-blox F9.

The new tech-platform features multiple advanced positioning systems, namely, Global Navigating Satellite System (GNSS), dead reckoning, and high precision algorithm that can work in conjunction with the correction data provided by GNSS to provide centimeter-level accuracy.

Daniel Ammann, executive vise president (R&D software) of u blox Holding AG noted that as rugged and expandable solutions for high precision positioning are increasingly needed in various applications, the said technology will serve as the next focus in the global market of high-precision positioning gadgets.

u-blox F9 can meet market demands through integration of hardware and software. Also notable is that the multi-band (L1/L2/L5) GNSS signal generated by u-blox F9 is capable of correcting positioning errors caused by ionospheric refraction, while offering Fast Time to First Fix (TTFF).

Note-worthily, the platform can receive signals transmitted from all GNSS systems including GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO and BeiDou.

To further secure centimeter-level accuracy, u-blox F9 offers an on-chip technical option of Real Time Kinematic (RTK) as the first in the consumer market.

Optimized for low power consumption, the u blox F9 platform sets a high standard for security with built in jamming and spoofing detection systems that protect the device from intentional and unintentional interference.

Also targeted at the automotive segment, u-blox F9 can be used for different purposes, including lane level navigation for head up displays and vehicular infotainment systems as well as for vehicle to everything (V2X) communication.

As for the field of industrial applications, u-blox F9 is an ideal solution for driverless transportation, drones, heavy trucks robot grass cutters and many others.
