Positioning platform uses four GNSS systems for higher reliability: Page 2 of 2

Positioning platform provides highly reliable data for UAVs and cars
Today’s cars and trucks, but even more so agricultural machines and drones depend on reliable and exact position data. However, unfavorable conditions such as those in tunnels, urban canyons and adverse geographical conditions, most GNSS-based positioning systems render unreliable, because they lose the lose the connection to the position satellites. Swiss company u-blox has developed a technology platform that promises to be much more reliable.

Users of the u-blox M9 will therefore benefit from it being part of the wider u-blox product family, which means that developers will be able to design a single PCB and then migrate to a different positioning technology, such as dead reckoning augmenting GNSS technology, with very little change to the board design.

The introduction of the u-blox M9 is accompanied by the release of the Explorer Kit M9 (XPLR-M9) development board. The plug-and-play device is supplied with u-start software, which includes a number of preset scenarios to enable users to explore the performance of the new device.

The u-blox M9 technology platform complies with the ISO/TS 16949, ISO 16750, AEC-Q100 standards. Engineering samples of the NEO-M9N, the first module based on the M9 platform, the UBX-M9140 high performance chip, and the Explorer Kit are available now.
