ANavS – Advanced Navigation Solutions
ANavS is a leading company in the development of ultra-precise positioning and attitude solutions. We achieve an accuracy of 0.25°/m for the heading and of a few centimeters for the position through our patented GNSS (GPS, Glonass, Galileo, etc.) carrier phase positioning (RTK) with integer ambiguity resolution.
Our sensor fusion with a tight coupling of GNSS and inertial measurements allows us to provide a seamless position and attitude information with 100 Hz in areas with and without GNSS signal reception (e.g. below trees, bridges, tunnels). We also include corrections from a virtual reference station to achieve a centimeter-level accuracy globally at any place at any time.
Our sensor modules are easy to use and completely wire-free as a GNSS receiver, a GNSS patch antenna, an inertial sensor, a barometer, a bluetooth transceiver, and a bluetooth antenna are all combined on a single board. The size corresponds to a credit card.
The subsequent figure shows the positioning of ANavS in the market: We are providing position and attitude solutions that are much more accurate than mass-market GNSS receivers and almost as accurate as geodetic receivers. However, ANavS solutions are much cheaper than geodetic ones.
We are providing both software and hardware. Our solutions are used in automobile, maritime and machine steering applications (e.g. antenna pointing), but can be used also in any other application with the need of a precise and reliable position and/ or attitude information.
