- u-blox’s GNSS platforms provide enhancements to modern GNSS positioning services, as seen in the recently completed BeiDou navigation satellite system
- Services include satellite and ground-based augmentation services, precise single-point positioning, precise timing and global short message services for many industrial and consumer use cases
u-blox has announced that its current GNSS platforms, from u-blox M8 and beyond, support the recently completed BeiDou navigation satellite system modernisations, improving the availability of GNSS positioning services.
Tests have shown that the company’s GNSS positioning and wireless communication technologies can improve the positioning accuracy of GNSS receivers when multiple navigation satellite systems are tracked concurrently. In particular, when signals are partially obstructed, positioning accuracy can be significantly improved by incorporating the BeiDou system.
The BeiDou global navigation satellite system provides services including satellite and ground-based augmentation services, precise single-point positioning, precise timing and global short message services, laying a solid foundation for complete navigation and tracking applications.
Applications of GNSS technology continue to diversify, leveraging the all-weather, all-time, tracking, navigation, and timing services it offers. GNSS technology is penetrating deeper into traditional industrial verticals, such as agriculture, forestry, animal husbandry and fishery, power and energy, as well as in railway and air transportation, including their infrastructure construction and management.
Key use cases
At the same time, GNSS technology has become an indispensable for emerging application fields such as the Internet of Things and the Internet of Vehicles, as well as in innovative applications such as autonomous driving, automatic parking, and automatic logistics, and is now commonplace in many industrial and consumer use cases.
“u-blox has been closely following the modernization of the BeiDou navigation system and is ready to work with partners in various industries to promote the expansion of industry applications, expand emerging markets, and jointly create a green industry ecosystem,” says Hamilton Chen, China Country Manager at u-blox.
