Trimble introduces precise positioning solution
Trimble announced the Trimble PX-1 RTX solution for accurate and robust positioning and heading for commercial drone delivery applications.
The Trimble PX-1 RTX allows drone integration companies to add precise positioning capabilities so operators can more efficiently plan and execute takeoff, navigation and landing tasks as drone delivery advances to take on more challenging operations.
The launch was held at AUVSI Xponential Conference in Denver, Colorado.
The Trimble PX-1 RTX leverages Trimble’s CenterPoint RTX corrections and small, high-performance GNSS-inertial hardware to provide real-time, centimeter-level positioning and highly accurate inertial derived true heading measurements.
This solution allows operators precise control of the drones during takeoff and landing in order to tackle more demanding operations in tight or partially obstructed spaces. It also minimizes operational risks from poor sensor performance or magnetic interference by ensuring greater positioning redundancy, especially important as commercial drone delivery operations venture into increasingly difficult urban and suburban environments.
