The collaboration will bring the u-blox PointPerfect service’s dm-level positioning accuracies to mass-market applications such as automotive and micromobility.

u-blox, a global provider of positioning and wireless communication technologies and services, and Position Partners, an Australasian provider of intelligent positioning solutions, have signed an MoU of cooperation to expand the availability of global navigation satellite system (GNSS) augmentation services in Australia and New Zealand. The partnership with Position Partners is another step on the path to offering customers global coverage of the u-blox PointPerfect GNSS augmentation service.

A mass-market-focused offering for Australia, New Zealand

Position Partners is a well-established provider of real-time kinematic (RTK) GNSS augmentation data across Australia and New Zealand. The company was seeking to complement its current AllDayRTK offering, which primarily targets construction, mining, and agriculture applications requiring high precision positioning technology, with a mass-market-focused offering that scales effortlessly and allows for more cost-effective distribution models.

Position Partners identified u-blox’s PPP-RTK PointPerfect GNSS augmentation service as the ideal solution for automotive, micromobiity, and industrial applications. A key factor in favor of PointPerfect was the service’s broadcast nature, allowing it to be delivered to any number of customers using a single GNSS augmentation data stream. Moreover, pay-as-you-go distribution models increase the service’s attractiveness, ensuring that customers only pay for the services they use.
