Automotive Dead Reckoning (ADR) is u‑blox’ industry proven off‑the‑shelf Dead Reckoning solution for tier‑one automotive customers. u‑blox’ ADR solution combines GPS and sensor digital data using a tightly coupled Kalman filter. This improves position accuracy during periods of no or degraded GPS signal. The NEO‑6V provides ADR functionality over its software sensor interface. A variety of sensors (such as wheel ticks and gyroscope) are supported, with the sensor data received via UBX messages from the application processor. This allows for easy integration and a simple hardware interface, lowering costs. By using digital sensor data available on the vehicle bus, hardware costs are minimized since no extra sensors are required for Dead Reckoning functionality. ADR is designed for simple integration and easy configuration of different sensor options (e.g. with or without gyroscope) and vehicle variants, and is completely self‑calibrating. All NEO‑6 modules are manufactured in ISO/TS 16949 certified sites. Each module is tested and inspected during production. Qualification tests are performed as stipulated in the ISO16750 standard: “Road vehicles – Environmental conditions and testing for electrical and electronic equipment”.
