Fixposition has released the Vision-RTK 2, a low-power, compact centimeter-level positioning sensor designed for autonomous delivery and logistics vehicles, agriculture, mowing and landscaping machines, and any other application where precise, uninterrupted positioning must be available.

“As vehicles and machines become increasingly autonomous, they must safely and precisely negotiate complex routes, even where global positioning satellite visibility is degraded or blocked,” said Dr. Zhenzhong Su, CEO and Co-founder of Fixposition. “With Vision-RTK 2, these applications are becoming possible. Our deep sensor fusion technology combines satellite GNSS technology with advanced computer vision and machine learning. It delivers a best-in-class solution at the right price-point for applications where centimeter to decimeter-level accuracy is not only crucial but must be available under all conditions.”

“We are using a global optimization-based sensor fusion technique that is much more robust and powerful than traditional Kalman filters,” said Lukas Meier, CTO and Co-founder of Fixposition. “Our computer vision-based dead reckoning technology has clear advantages over purely IMU based products.”
