u-blox and Nordian bring PointPerfect GNSS correction service to Brazil
u-blox and Nordian, a US precision location technology company providing advanced GNSS hardware solutions and services for the South American market, have announced the expanded coverage of the PointPerfect Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) correction service to Brazil.
The collaboration between u-blox and Nordian will facilitate precise positioning for a diverse range of applications, in particular high-precision agriculture, but also service robots, machinery automation, micro-mobility, and emerging automotive applications such as lane-accurate navigation and telematics.
PointPerfect delivers centimetre-level accuracy, achieving convergence in seconds with a 99.9% uptime reliability. The broadcast ensures uniform coverage on a continental scale. PointPerfect’s recently announced Localised Distribution feature, which uses 90% less data than typical network RTK (Real Time Kinematic) services, significantly reduces user data costs. The combination of a low-bandwidth data stream and flexible service plans provides better value for businesses today and easy scalability for future needs.
“Entering the Brazilian market together with Nordian marks a pivotal expansion into South America and represents another step in our strategy to globalise the PointPerfect service. PointPerfect is the ideal solution to address the need for high-precision GNSS technology in applications such as autonomous farming,” explains Ari Kuukka, Principal Product Owner, Product Centre Services at u-blox.
