Bynav Technology announced an upcoming release of the X2 automotive-grade GNSS/INS positioning unit this year which aims to provide mass-production positioning solution for automotive manufacturers and autonomous driving integrators.
Measuring 79x63mm, X2 is a credit-card-sized rugged housing with Automotive Ethernet Interface, supporting GPTP (precision time protocol), as well as L-band signal reception, PPP/PPP-RTK mode and the seamless switch of RTK/PPP mode in areas with poor N-RTK service coverage and overseas users, capable to provide high-precision positioning results through satellite-based enhanced signals even in the environment where there is no mobile signal, no base station needed.
Based on the deeply coupled GNSS/INS technology architecture, X2 can output the absolute centimeter-level position above 200Hz to be used in urban canyons, tunnels, foliage canopy, severe weather like heavy fog, rain, snow, and dust, as well as harsh environments like traffic jams, neon lights, worn lane lines and open road sections with no feature points. It can also integrate with odometers to further improve the accuracy and stability of the GNSS/INS position.
The X2 automotive-grade positioning unit will be available in the second half of 2021.
