Leveraging the u-blox ZED-F9P, Taoglas Edge Locate™ helps industry leaders future-proof their IoT deployments.
Thalwil, Switzerland – November 7, 2019 – u-blox (SIX:UBXN), a global provider of leading positioning and wireless communication technologies, today announced that Taoglas, (https://www.taoglas.com/) a leading provider of next-generation IoT solutions, has developed a centimeter-level GNSS positioning solution. Comprising a high precision L1/L2/E5 GNSS receiver, the u-blox ZED-F9P, (https://www.u-blox.com/en/pro
Taoglas Edge Locate addresses the growing demand for highly accurate centimeter-level positioning performance, which, until recently, was reserved for high value use cases such as guidance systems for precision agriculture and heavy machinery. This changed with the release of the use of additional satellite signals and the announcement ( https://www.u-blox.com/en/pres
Featuring the u-blox ZED-F9P high precision GNSS module with concurrent reception of GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou on multiple frequency bands, the Taoglas Edge Locate module can also use real-time kinematic (RTK) algorithms to help achieve even faster convergence times and reliable performance, even in highly dynamic applications. The integrated smart antenna is specifically designed and optimized for multi-band GNSS applications.

In a press release published by Taoglas, the company’s Co-CEO, Ronan Quinlan, highlighted one way that high precision positioning will benefit IoT applications. “Take an example from the burgeoning micro-mobility industry. When granting licenses from a trial, the city authorities would like to monitor the riders of e-scooters, ensuring riders are staying off footpaths, or parking in designated areas. The problem is that today’s legacy GPS solutions don’t often know which side of the road a scooter is on. Whereas with our solution, fleet operators can pinpoint within just a few centimeters where a device is located.”
