The European Space Agency (ESA) has launched a new call for Kick-Start activities in 2017. Kick-start Activities are designated to enable companies to undertake compact Feasibility Studies that explore new service and application concepts which make use of space capabilities. The activities are funded at 75 %, with ESA providing up to € 60,000 per contract.
ANavS has received a contract on its proposal on “Multi-GNSS, Multi-Sensor RTK Positioning for Automated Road Transport”.
The transport logistic is the world’s leading trade fair for logistics, mobility, IT, and supply chain management, and acts as the business platform and driving force behind the global logistics and transport industry. The German Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, Alexander Dobrindt, visited the transport logistic and met the managing director of ANavS, Dr. Patrick Henkel.

The German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure has published a Call on “Automated and Connected Driving on Digital Test Areas in Germany”.
ANavS has received a grant for the development of a precise Multi-Sensor RTK positioning system for highly automated driving.
ANavS will present its precise RTK positioning system at the Navis Center in Hanoi, Vietnam, on June 19 – 23, 2017. The presentation is supported by the BELS project (Building Links between Europe and South-East Asia).
ANavS offers a breakthrough solution for position and attitude determination with centimeter-accuracy and minimum weight and size. The system includes a multi-GNSS receiver for receiving GPS, GLONASS and Galileo, an inertial measurement unit (IMU), a camera and a barometer. The tightly coupled sensor fusion allows a precise solution even in challenging conditions.
Applications: vehicular navigation (ADAS), UAVs, maritime navigation, geodesy, environmental monitoring, …
Visit ANavS at Hall 5B, Booth 315/414.
The conference “Kooperationsforum Fahrerassistenzsysteme” took place at the Stadthalle of Aschaffenburg on May 12. ANavS made a live demonstration of its real-time RTK positioning system, i.e. the position and attitude of a model train were determined with three ANavS multi-sensor modules with centimeter accuracy in front of the beautiful castle “Johannesburg”.
