We are happy to announce the availability of u-blox ZED-F9P in Geppetto. You can now design a custom electronic board for your rovers, land-based vehicles project, Internet of Things (IoT) device, or anything that requires precise positioning.
It is also important to note that Aerial Vehicles usually have an unobstructed view of the sky so single frequency GNSS is usually acceptable. However, rovers and land-based vehicles have trees, bridges, building, over top of them so they frequently lose signal lock. The dual frequency of the ZED-F9P makes a huge difference in the speed of acquisition and precision.
GNSS Receiver Family
This new module adds to our GNSS Receiver offering which already includes support for the following module:
- u-blox NEO-7P
- u-blox NEO-M8T
- u-blox NEO-M8P-2
- u-blox NEO-M8P-0
Why use the ZED-F9P?
The ZED-F9P high precision module with multiband GNSS receiver provides multi-band RTK with fast convergence times, reliable performance and easy integration of RTK for fast time-to-market.
The u-blox ZED multi-band GNSS receiver with a SMA antenna connector enables the use of external, active antennas. This module provides precise navigation and automation of moving machinery in industrial and consumer grade products in a compact surface mounted form factor.
The ZED-F9P includes moving base support, allowing both base and rover to move while computing a centimeter-level accurate position between them.
Moving base is ideal for UAV applications where the UAV is programmed to follow its owner or to land on a moving platform. It is also well suited to attitude sensing applications where both base and rover modules are mounted on the same moving platform and the relative position is used to derive attitude information for the vehicle or tool.
