3D dead reckoning receiver leverages sensor-fusion for 100% coverage

April 25, 2016 // By Julien Happich
SkyTraq Technology's S1722DR8 GNSS dead-reckoning receiver integrates a 3-axis gyroscope/accelerometer and a barometric pressure sensor with a GNSS receiver.

Using wheel/speed data from vehicle to perform sensor-fused solution, the 17x22mm module can be flexibly mounted in any orientation to achieves 100% coverage for vehicles applications requiring the high performance, reliable, uninterrupted positioning.

The auto-calibration feature of the S1722DR8 greatly simplifies installation, with a very short calibration time upon first use. The on-board barometric pressure sensor provides highly accuracy altitude information, useful for differentiating floor level of multi-story parking garage or stacked highways. It offers continuous navigation even in GPS signal denied environments such as tunnels or underground parking lot.
