Septentrio has launched a new line of high-performance GNSS/INS receivers that provides high-accuracy positioning and 3D orientation, heading, pitch and roll for unmanned systems and robotics. The AsteRx-i3 range includes both OEM boards for rapid integration as well as ruggedized receivers enclosed in a waterproof IP68 housing
The AsteRx-i3 product line includes a total of 5 new GNSS/INS receivers. The Pro receivers offer high accuracy positioning with 3D orientation and dead-reckoning functionality for easy, rapid plug-and-play integrations. The versatile Pro+ receivers deliver integrated positioning and orientation along with raw measurements, and are ideal for applications with sensor fusion. One of the receivers offers an off-board IMU sensor, which can be mounted exactly at the alignment point-of-interest.
The AsteRx-i3 Pro+ receivers support either single or dual antenna modes. The single antenna mode is ideal for compact and light-weight configurations, while dual antenna mode reduces the need for movement during IMU initialization, allowing fully informed navigation from the beginning of the operation.
Danilo Sabbatini, Product Manager at Septentrio, commented: “Using our off-the-shelf GNSS/INS systems allows our customers to focus their efforts on core technology and to reduce their products’ time-to-market. With this new generation of products, we aim to satisfy specific needs of various customers. Instead of releasing a single general-purpose product, we bring several dedicated solutions for fastest and easiest integration into systems that require robotic navigation or sensor fusion.”
