ArduSimple announced the availability of a range of GNSS starter kits that enable anyone in Europe or the US to test or integrate high precision centimeter accuracy for a service or product proof of concept (PoC).
Building a PoC for increasingly common applications, such as autonomous vehicles, where high levels of positioning accuracy are required, is often a complex process. Finding compatible antennas that are tuned correctly, CPUs, modems that connect to GSM, sourcing a global SiM, finding a suitable RTK correction engine that works in multiple regions, and then mounting this all on a board is a lengthy and costly process.
Solving this issue, the ArduSimple GNSS starter kit has pulled together all the components and services needed to build a PoC and that work straight out of the box.
Working anywhere in Europe and the US with a 4G signal, the simpleSSR – Starter Kit includes:
- 1 simpleRTK2B-F9P V3 board
- 1 u-blox ANN-MB-00 Antenna for GNSS Dual Band with cable (IP67)
- 4G radio module with NTRIP client including RTK-SSR engine (XBee socket compatible)
- 2 4G antennas with integrated cable
- 1 SIM card with one-year subscription
- One-year subscription to u-blox PointPerfect SSR service
- Price: €799.00 / $849.00
Commenting on the starter kit launch, Marc Castillo, Senior Consultant at ArduSimple, said: “Bringing together high precision, accuracy, and connectivity in Europe and the US in one simple out-of-the-box solution will significantly speed up the process of PoC projects. We’ve reduced the complexity, enabling engineers to focus on the feasibility of their project.”
