Positioning technology surrounds us daily, whether it is establishing a high accuracy control point for engineering surveys or looking for the most efficient route to work which bypasses the traffic. Within the Caribbean we have been slow to adopt higher accuracy positioning technology primarily due to the cost. Our team is able to source the necessary hardware to satisfy your cost constraints and guarantee your accuracy specifications.
What is GNSS?
Traditionally referred to as GPS, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) refers to a constellation of satellites providing signals from space that transmit positioning and timing data to GNSS receivers. The receivers then use this data to determine location.
By definition, GNSS provides global coverage. Examples of GNSS include the USA’s NAVSTAR Global Positioning System (GPS), Russia’s Global’naya Navigatsionnaya Sputnikovaya Sistema (GLONASS), China’s BeiDou Navigation Satellite System and Europe’s Galileo.
Accuracy: the difference between a receiver’s measured and real position, speed or time;
Integrity: a system’s capacity to provide a threshold of confidence and, in the event of an anomaly in the positioning data, an alarm;
Continuity: a system’s ability to function without interruption;
Availability: the percentage of time a signal fulfils the above accuracy, integrity and continuity criteria.
At Innovation Activators our team members have delivered customized high accuracy solutions which assisted in driving innovative products to market.
Our most notable collaboration consisted of working with ProTanks Trade B.V. located in Rotterdam,Netherlands to develop a tracking solution at the Rotterdam World Gateway. The tracking solution called Hadd-on is built as a smart add-on for Honeywell’s most popular A79 hard hat.
