GPS sensors for reliable and accurate drone operations
Nowadays GPS positioning is a crucial element for drone control. UAVs install GPS sensors with which accurately calculate drone position. It makes possible to execute predefined flight missions or make improvised landings and autonomous maneuvers such as “Go Home”, only by pressing a button on the joystick or activated by a pre-programmed action.
With help of GPS sensors, it is possible to estimate the exact location of the drone and perform predefined operations. Thanks to the use of these sensors a route can be configured for autonomous flight. Configuring this route is as simple as drawing waypoints and curves on the map. This technology is also used for commanding gimbal controls to point cameras to a fixed target. All this is particularly important for operations such as surveillance, construction supervisions, surveying, precision agriculture management, etc…
The use of high-performance GPS sensors is essential for safe and precise operations. It permits to increase flight accuracy and permits automatic operations in low GPS signal location. It also enables advanced positioning modes such as RTK, RCTM or RTK-Like algorithms,…
Veronte Autopilot now installs enhanced GPS sensors
At Embention we continue improving our control system, now with new improved GPS. New GPS sensors provide advanced performance as mentioned above. Increasing autopilot capabilities over the high performance available so far.
By using the control station electronics jointly with the GPS data on the onboard autopilot it is possible to enable accurate positioning algorithms by using RTCM technology.
GPS signals compatible
Veronte now includes extended coverage, providing an improved reception for all GPS bands and available signals: GPS/QZSS L1 C/A, GLONASS L10F, BeiDou B1 SBAS L1 C/A: WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, GAGAN Galileo E1B/C.
Fast cold start
In many operations the “time to fly” is essential. Now we reduce the start time getting a perfect triangulation with the positioning satellites faster than ever.
Veronte increases accuracy in the operation thanks to the improved GPS sensor. This allows performing precision operations at the time the security of the mission is increased. This increase in accuracy is not only reflected in the accuracy of the flight but it is also reflected in the precision of the extracted log data for the post processing.
