New open-source wireless GPS/GNSS hardware for IoT and autonomous applications
Septentrio has announced an important addition to the open-source resources for their GPS/GNSS module receivers: mosaicTM wireless orsimply mowi. It combines the Septentrio mosaic-X5 or mosaic-H module receiver with a dual-mode Bluetooth and integrated Wi-Fi from the well-known ESP32- WRover programmable module by Espressif Systems. It is an addition to the already existing mosaicHAT board, designed on the Raspberry Pi platform.
The mowi project facilitates accurate and reliable GNSS positioning for robotic and autonomous devices, on a hardware level. Numerous engineers today use the ESP32 and the multiple libraries available for Internet-of-Things (IoT) prototyping. The mowi board is an easy way for integrators to get started with Septentrio’s mosaic-X5 or mosaic-H heading module receivers. The mowi board can be used on its own or plugged into a mobile computer such as Raspberry Pi or Arduino to deliver high-accuracy positioning with high update rates, ideal for machine navigation, monitoring or control. The internet connection via Wi-Fi or Bluetoothenables numerous industrial IoT applications, simplifying the connectivity to mobile data for the delivery of GNSS corrections needed for cm-level RTK positioning.
