HYFIX.AI announces MobileCM GEODNET base station using Quectel’s LC29H dual-band GNSS module
The partnership will reduce cost and increase availability of cm-accurate solutions for global AIoT applications
San Francisco, 11 July 2022 – HYFIX.AI, a leader in IoT global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) and precise location technologies, announces the availability of a GEODNET base station using the dual-band GNSS module LC29H from Quectel Wireless Solutions, a global IoT solutions provider. The Mobile Centimeter (MobileCM) base station is a dual-band GNSS base station for real time kinematic (RTK) precise-positioning applications in autonomy, agriculture, construction/survey, drones and geoscience applications.
Introduced at the Institute of Navigation 2021 GNSS Conference, the Global Earth Observation Decentralized Network, GEODNET, received a best presentation award and has rapidly grown since official launch in early 2022. The MobileCM station automatically uploads real-time satellite data to GEODNET via a Wi-Fi-based Internet connection. The real-time GEODNET coverage map is found at https://console.geodnet.com/map. MobileCM base stations are self-hosted and receive GEODNET token rewards while powering both commercial AIoT as well as citizen science climate change applications.
Dual-band GNSS module LC29H
The Quectel LC29H module is a surface-mount low-power 135-channel dual-band receiver with cutting edge price-performance. The LC29H can host both RTK and dead reckoning algorithms such as the HYFIX.AI Embedded Centimeter (EmbedCM) stack. Using GNSS correction from a service such as GEODNET or other network, the LC29H dual-band GNSS module can achieve position accuracy of 10cm in a variety of real-world conditions.
The HYFIX.AI MobileCM base-station, which embeds the LC29H as well as the ATECC608B CryptoAuthentication engine, is simple to install and connect to the Internet. The included installation kit provides a survey grade triple-band GNSS antenna, primary antenna cable, and rooftop installation hardware. The base station is available for $495.
“Quectel is excited to continue its partnership with HYFIX.AI to deliver precise GNSS positioning accuracy of 10cm in the real world using our dual-band LC29 family of GNSS modules,” said Mark Murray, Vice President of Sales for GNSS and Automotive at Quectel Wireless Solutions.
“HYFIX.AI is pleased to continue support of Quectel’s dual-band LC29 GNSS modules and introduce a new turn-key GEODNET base station for global precise positioning” said Mike Horton, Chief Executive Officer of HYFIX.AI.
