Combining multi-GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo) with an onboard 3D gyro/accelerometer, the UDR technology improves position accuracy even where GNSS signals are weak or even not available, such as in urban canyons, tunnels, or parking garages. Receivers with a serial MD6 interface can work in an extended voltage range from 5 to 48 V DC.

Applications for Navilock’s GNSS receiver series include service vehicles from the police, fire departments, emergency physicians, disaster rescue teams and technical aid organizations that require accurate positioning at all times. Operational forces and their control centers must be constantly aware of their location to enable successful completion of any assignment. As a result, physical dangers and even life threats are clearly minimized.

“We have been collaborating for years with u-blox,” says Karsten Reschke, Navilock Product Manager. “Particularly critical for our product range is the UDR technology that enables reliable and accurate location capability even without satellite navigation signals.”

UDR enables reliable positioning even in case of GNSS signal interruptions, jamming, reflected or weak signals, and is independent of any connection to the car, other than power.

The eight new Navilock GNSS receivers will be available in Q1 2017.
