Latest 3D dead-reckoning receiver offers 100% coverage
Subs & Systems
The S1722DR8, a new dead-reckoning receiver, integrating 3-axis gyroscope/accelerometer and barometric pressure sensor with GNSS receiver has been unveiled by SkyTraq Technology.
Using wheel / speed data from a vehicle to perform sensor-fused solution, the S1722DR8 achieves 100% coverage making it ideal for vehicles applications requiring the highest performance, reliability and uninterrupted positioning.
The S1722DR8 can be flexibly mounted in any orientation, no longer required to be placed horizontally as in conventional DR solutions using single-axis gyroscope. The auto-calibration feature of S1722DR8 greatly simplifies installation procedure; very short calibration time upon first use also much improves user experience. The on-board barometric pressure sensor provides highly accuracy altitude information, useful for differentiating floor level of multi-story parking garage or stacked highway.
The S1722DR8 is compact in size, measuring 17mm x 22mm. It offers continuous navigation even in GPS signal denied environments such as tunnels or underground parking lot. Augmented by gyroscope and accelerometer sensor data, it is also ideal for vehicle insurance accident reconstruction applications, says the company.
