Automotive Dead Reckoning supports high rate real time positioning

u-blox, a specialist in wireless and positioning modules and chips, has announced the release of its fourth generation firmware for 3D Automotive Dead Reckoning (ADR) GNSS modules and chips.

Already ideal for first mount or aftermarket road vehicle applications, such as in-car navigation, infotainment systems, telematics units and fleet management, the upgraded GNSS receiver now offers real-time continuous navigation output with an update rate of 20 Hz, enabling low latency for applications such as interactive head-up displays.

As the new firmware includes Galileo, in addition to GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS and SBAS, it also supports Galileo-based eCall, the European emergency call system, which will be required in new vehicles starting in 2018.

The DR performance has been enhanced, improving navigation performance especially in highly urban environments where satellite signals are heavily blocked by and reflected from buildings. The high performance of the u‑blox M8 concurrent positioning engine combined with the latest u-blox 3D ADR technology results in 100% coverage and continuous 3D positioning.

The new firmware will be delivered on u-blox NEO-M8L modules and is available for UBX-M8030-Kx-DR dead reckoning chips including the new automotive grade variant supporting operation up to 105ºC.
