The NEO-M8P from u-blox AG is a concurrent GNSS module that allows concurrent reception of GPS/QZSS, GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo signals. It has a high performance u-blox M8 positioning engine combined with u-blox’s Real Time Kinematic (RTK) technology which enable it to provide cm-level accuracy.
RTK (real time kinematic) technologies have been used for some time in low-volume niche markets, such as surveying and construction. Due to high costs and complexity, this enhanced positioning technology has been inaccessible for most other uses. Emerging high volume markets, such as unmanned vehicles, require high precision performance that is energy-efficient and low in costs. Other application areas include agriculture and robotic guidance systems, such as tractors or robotic lawnmowers.
The u-blox NEO-M8P answers these demands for a small-sized, highly cost-effective, and very precise RTK-based module solution.
