u-blox and MBC develop the world’s first fully integrated L1/L2 RTK solution for centimeter-level positioning applications

Share Share this

MBC’s MRP‑2000 positioning solution integrates the u‑blox ZED‑F9P high precision GNSS module.

Thalwil, Switzerland – December 11, 2018 – u‑blox (SIX:UBXN), a global provider of leading positioning and wireless communication technologies, has announced the results of its collaboration with Korean broadcast media company MBC. With assistance from u‑blox, MBC has launched an ultra‑compact L1/L2 real time kinematic (RTK) multi‑band device, the MBC MRP‑2000, featuring a u‑blox ZED‑F9P high precision GNSS module. The solution is the first to offer the Korean market a GNSS RTK receiver and wireless access to a GNSS correction service in a single box.

To achieve centimeter‑level position accuracy, high precision GNSS receivers combine multi‑band satellite signal reception and GNSS correction data. In addition to mitigating positioning errors incurred as the satellite signals cross the ionosphere, multi‑band reception significantly speeds up the time it takes the receiver to determine its location. The ZED‑F9P process GNSS correction data, received via a wireless data connection, using integrated RTK algorithms. For uninterrupted centimeter‑level accuracy, it requires constant data access over the air.

Weighing just 50 g, the compact and extremely low power MRP‑2000 provides centimeter‑level positioning accuracy for a wide range of portable and mobile applications such as autonomous vehicles, drones, and survey equipment. It comes with a subscription to MBC’s RTK correction service, delivered nationwide using digital media broadcasting (DMB) networks, with LTE fallback.

The u‑blox ZED‑F9P GNSS receiver featured in the MRP‑2000 keeps the cost, size, and power consumption of the solution low. With advanced multi‑band RTK algorithms integrated on the chip, MBC was able to enable centimeter‑level positioning with no additional hardware or third party RTK libraries, cutting the time it took to bring the solution to market.

“By integrating our ZED‑F9P, a mass market RTK receiver, with Korea’s low cost DMB connectivity channel to offer automotive and industrial applications access to a nationwide correction service, MBC was able to dramatically reduce the cost of ownership of centimeter‑level positioning technology,” says KS Son, Country Manager, u‑blox Korea.

“Collaborating with u‑blox helped us develop the MRP‑2000, the first fully integrated positioning solution that can use RTK data from the DMB network as the primary source of location correction information, only switching to the LTE network in areas of poor DMB reception,” says Seung‑Ho Lee, Director of Spatial Information Business, MBC. “This gives the user an extremely high connectivity coverage delivering centimeter- level performance across the entire South Korea peninsula,” he adds.

u-blox partners with Arvento to develop multi-purpose people and asset tracker

Share Share this

Treyki Mini relies on u‑blox positioning and wireless communication technologies.

Thalwil, Switzerland – December 4, 2018 – u‑blox (SIX:UBXN), a global provider of leading positioning and wireless communication technologies, has announced a successful partnership with Arvento Mobile Systems, a Turkey‑based top leading fleet telematics company, to develop a compact people and asset tracking device with a long battery life. The Arvento Treyki Mini has eight operating modes, including special settings for tracking kids (with Geofencing), senior citizens (with an integrated fall sensor), and for use in sports, racing, and asset management. It can also be used as an emergency beacon.

The tracker has an onboard positioning receiver, and reports its location using an internal GSM/GRPS modem. It can operate for up to 7 days from its 900mAh LiPo rechargeable battery before it needs to be recharged.

The Treyki Mini relies on the u‑blox ZOE‑M8Q concurrent multi‑GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) module to discover its location. This System in Package (SiP) offering is just 4.5 x 4.5 x 1.0mm, and provides high accuracy thanks to its ability to receive 72 channels simultaneously, from up to three different GNSS constellations. It also offers reliable positioning in challenging environments because it has a sensitivity of –167 dBm and is energy- efficient. Communications for the Treyki Mini are provided by the u‑blox SARA‑G340 dual‑band GSM/GPRS module, whose very low standby power of less than 0.90mA helps extend its battery life. This module also supports firmware‑over‑the‑air (FOTA) updates, enabling Arvento to continue to refine the Treyki Mini after production.

“The Treyki Mini is the result of a very close collaboration between Arvento and u‑blox to optimize its size and power consumption. We expect that the strong sense of partnership that evolved between our two companies during the development of the Treyki Mini will lead to further collaboration in the future, especially when it comes to telematics system solutions,” says Özer Hıncal, General Manager, Arvento.
