Swift Navigation’s Precision GNSS Module (PGM) Evaluation Platform—featuring Swift’s mPCIe format PGM receiver installed in an IoT compute platform—provides a turn-key demonstration of Swift’s precision positioning solution. Swift’s PGM delivers real-time precision navigation utilizing STMicroelectronics TeseoV chipset in a Quectel LG69T-AP module and is designed specifically for Swift’s Starling positioning engine running on a host application processor.
When used with Swift’s Skylark cloud-based precise positioning service, the PGM Evaluation Platform delivers even stronger performance and accuracy levels. PGM is ideal for customers building industrial, last mile and Internet of Things (IoT) platforms that require the ability to quickly install on a target platform and test performance in the field.
Swift’s PGM Evaluation Platform ships with all necessary components to quickly evaluate performance on a test platform; including a multi-band antenna, power cables and access to a free 30-day Skylark trial.
The PGM Evaluation Platform is easily configurable, supports industry standard protocols and can be operated using Swift’s suite of utilities for fast evaluation.
The path to volume production could not be simpler. For applications with a suitable mini peripheral component interconnect express (mPCIe) slot available, customers can utilize Swift’s PGM receiver. For high-volume platforms without a PCIe slot, customers can design the Quectel LG69T-AP module directly into their printed circuit board (PCB).
Encased in a ruggedized, fanless housing unit and with options for bolt-down mounting, the PGM Evaluation Platform is designed to withstand the rigors of field testing.
Featuring integrated antenna bias, the PGM Evaluation Platform supports an active GNSS antenna for best performance. The module supports current sensing, and short circuit protection in antenna bias, to enable high-reliability vehicle installs and ongoing diagnostics information.
PGM supports end-to-end State Space Representation (SSR) format corrections when connected to Swift’s wide-area corrections service, Skylark. SSR format corrections reduce bandwidth usage compared to traditional Observation Space Representation (OSR) while supporting highest performance.
PGM provides dead reckoning capabilities with a leading-edge integrated ASM330 Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) to provide continual high-precision positioning together with the ability to receive vehicle sensor input such as velocity. The state of the art integrated algorithms in Starling fuse between the IMU data, GNSS measurements, wheel ticks and vehicle dynamics model to provide lane accurate positioning where GNSS alone would fail.
