  • Where precision meets reliability: Enabling autonomy through GNSS corrections Jun 24 2021 3:00 pm UTC 8 mins
    Sara Masterson - Hexagon A&P division
    Autonomous applications like self-driving cars, robo-trucking and delivery drones require highly accurate and reliable positioning systems. GNSS hardware, software and additional sensors like LiDAR, photogrammetry and inertial navigation systems help support precise positioning, but even these advanced technologies need an added layer of reliable accuracy.

    GNSS correction services through precise point positioning (PPP) or real-time kinematic (RTK) technologies extend the accuracy, reliability and overall quality of your system’s performance, making them vital for autonomous applications on land, at sea and in the air.

    Join Sara Masterson, Hexagon’s Autonomy & Positioning division’s positioning services director, for her webinar on how GNSS corrections enable autonomous technologies through precise and reliable positioning.
  • Why is “good enough” positioning not okay in ag autonomy? Recorded: May 27 2021 11 mins
    James Szabo - NovAtel, part of Hexagon
    Classic GNSS positioning systems are good while there is an operator in the tractor cab, but what happens when there is no longer a driver taking control during position interruptions?
    In this presentation Hexagon | NovAtel’s Agriculture Autonomy Product Manager James Szabo discusses the challenges of classic GNSS positioning and how we are overcoming them to support autonomous equipment in agriculture.

  • Frontiers of GNSS Accuracy Recorded: Apr 15 2021 13 mins
    Paul Alves - NovAtel, part of Hexagon
    Technological developments build upon what has come before. In this presentation, Hexagon’s Autonomy & Positioning division’s director of correction services Paul Alves explains why we have to stop thinking of Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) and Precise Point Positioning (PPP) corrections as two separate technologies. By seeing them as a continuous chain of developments, we’re able to continue innovating and achieve the best of both technologies: RTK From the Sky.

    Learn about the evolution of RTK, PPP and the frontiers of GNSS accuracy in this webinar on April 15. Register now to watch live or on-demand.
