Fixposition’s Vision-RTK positioning sensor has won the Best Innovation Award at the Consumer Technology & Innovation Show (CTIS)’s Best of CTIS Innovation Awards. 

Fixposition CTIS Award for Vision-RTK

The Best of CTIS Innovation Awards honor ground-breaking products, services, and technologies that define the future of consumer technology. The finalists are selected by ZOL, China’s leading information technology portal, based on their in-depth industry observation throughout the year. A total of 16 award categories highlight stand out products in terms of design, technology, feature innovation, and application prospect.

Fixposition’s Vision-RTK is a compact and lightweight positioning sensor, about the size of a matchbox. The proprietary sensor fusion engine combines computer vision, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) data to achieve real-time centimeter-accurate positioning in any environment. 

The company’s sensor fusion engine keeps working where traditional positioning systems fail, such as urban canyons, underpasses, and under tree canopies. The technology facilitates a variety of applications, such as off-highway autonomous activities, control of autonomous machines and robots, and many other applications that require precise positioning. 

Vision-RTK significantly increases the reliability and availability of precise positioning to help users boost their performance, focus on their core business, cut their time to market, and simplify their development.

Since November 2020 Fixposition has secured 5 top delivery robot OEMs in their opportunity pipeline. The Vision-RTK has already been adopted by worldwide leading drone and autonomous vehicle companies such as Neolix, PIX Moving and Agilex. The company is now expanding into a variety of market sectors from agriculture to logistics, where its product is already receiving recognition for its ability to solve localization issues in GNSS-challenging environments.
