PointPerfect Puts High Precision Innovation on Display


GPS technology is for far more than hikers and first responders. From the construction site and family farm, to the e-scooters appearing in cities around the world, high precision GPS technology is playing a pivotal role in positive results.

Put into action, HPG technology is transformative across a number of verticals.

The e-scooter revolution came out of nowhere across the United States. E-mobility solutions providers worked with municipal authorities to ensure compliance of local laws and regulations, and as requirements vary from city to city, high precision GPS delivers centimeter-level accuracy, limiting operation of e-scooters to appropriate areas.

The surveying sector is displaying the impact of GNSS technology, serving as an easily integrated value-add innovation. Emerging economies are experiencing increased investment in construction and infrastructure, and HPG offers an onramp to accelerated expansion and support.

UAVs are gaining momentum, highlighting efficacy in daily progress reports for construction projects; offshore wind turbine, power lines and pipeline investigations, but that’s not all. Aerial surveillance, traffic management and crop growth monitoring are a few other use cases for this up and coming sector, powered by small, lightweight, high-quality, real-time high accuracy positioning.

Heavy Machinery benefits from HPG, as well. HPG delivers steering guidance to assist in automating excavators, cranes, graders and diggers, driving productivity and cutting costs.

HPG also protects the soil. By guiding tractors and sprayers, pass-to-pass accuracy is improved, environmental impact is minimized and farmers experience newfound efficiency. As such, farmers can leverage collected data and HPG to limit water pollution, reduce seed volume and better protect arable land with more responsible use of fertilizer, herbicides and pesticides.

Taking a deeper dive into the u-blox precise positioning solution PointPerfect illustrates industry leading innovation in the space. Traditional GNSS provides 10 meter accuracy, with PointPerferct making corrections via mobile internet and I-band satellites exponentially enhances accuracy to a matter of centimeters. The process takes seconds on a continental scale.

The u-blox service operates with the most sophisticated GNSS reference stations and integrity stations collecting, testing and modeling data received from all GNSS satellites around the globe – this includes calculating each satellite clock errors, orbits, signal biases and atmospheric delays caused by the ionosphere and the troposphere.

Bottom-line, the net result enables the most reliable, available and accurate GNSS correction data service to the end users with 99.9% uptime, 24/7 reliability and 3-6cm accuracy.
