Earlier this month, Septentrio announced that their compact GNSS* modules mosaic-X5 and heading module mosaic-H are being integrated into evaluation kits developed by ArduSimple.
With these new kits, ArduSimple brings to market triple-band Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) as a plug-and-play solution for development platforms such Arduino, STM Nucleo, Raspberry Pi, Ardupilot and Nvidia Jetson. ArduSimple enables applications of the future, including robotics, UAV and autonomous systems, to easily try out mosaic, a unique module offering the latest high-performance GNSS positioning technology.
In addition to triple-band GNSS, mosaic module offers unmatched resilience to radio interference. This is especially important in robotic devices where electronic components, such as cameras and servos, are located close to the GPS/GNSS receiver, often interfering with weak GPS signals and causing positioning degradation. High-accuracy positioning is delivered at a uniquely high update-rate by mosaic-X5 in single antenna mode. Meanwhile, the board that mounts mosaic-H offers all-in functionality with dual-antenna mode for accurate GNSS heading.
The SimpleRTK3B board, which allows evaluation of the mosaic GNSS module, is now available for purchase via the ArduSimple web shop. For more information about mosaic or other Septentrio products visit septentrio.com or contact Septentrio.
"The mosaic module complements ArduSimple RTK product portfolio with a higher-end solution for the most demanding applications. Triple-band GNSS brings extra reliability to the RTK solution and removes the headache of transitioning from L2 to L5 band. This combined with its feature-rich software, will allow our customers to accelerate even more their time-to-market," said Marc Castillo, Senior Consultant at ArduSimple.
“By partnering with ArduSimple we are bringing mosaic to emerging markets where its outstanding performance makes a difference. Mosaic makes accurate positioning so much easier to integrate and use, while giving a competitive edge to new products,” said Gustavo Lopez, Market Access Manager at Septentrio. “ArduSimple is a great partner because they are known in the industry for offering user friendly and affordable evaluation kits for RTK positioning, complemented by software tools, making integration and rapid prototyping easy.”
