u-blox, a global provider of positioning and wireless communication technologies and services, has announced the launch of its new PointPerfect location service.

PointPerfect delivers an advanced GNSS augmentation data service designed from the ground up to be ultra-accurate, ultra-reliable, and immediately available. The service enables the fast-growing demand for high precision GNSS solutions including autonomous vehicles such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), service robots, machinery automation, micro mobility, and other advanced navigation applications. Emerging automotive applications include automated driving (AD) and advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), lane-accurate navigation, and telematics.

Delivered via mobile internet or L-band satellite signals, PointPerfect broadcasts on a continental scale with homogeneous coverage in Europe and the contiguous USA, including up to 12 nautical miles (roughly 22 kilometers) off coastlines to any number of end-devices, delivering sub-10-centimeter positioning accuracy and convergence of just seconds. Furthermore, adopting the industry-driven SPARTN messaging format combined with the lightweight and secure MQTT IoT delivery protocol results in a real-time, bandwidth-optimized, cost-efficient solution ideally suited for mass-market applications.
