Why Point One Wins
Point One is built on advanced algorithms for sensor fusion and the most modern infrastructure available, resulting in centimeter-level location data that is more accurate in more places.
Sensor fusion robustness provides accurate positioning even in challenging environments, and Polaris network coverage and reliability ensures a precision solution is available in more places, always.
Point One development kits get you started using FusionEngine and Polaris immediately, and are built to easily interface with your system using our code libraries and example programs.
We offer our hardware configurations as reference designs, and partnerships with module manufactures who can deliver at production scale.
Our network and services are built on modern, secure, and smoothly scalable infrastructure.
Frequently asked questions
Point One builds high precision GNSS solutions. Standard GNSS accuracy ranges from 1m to 10m and can be worse based on the operating environment. Point One’s high precision GNSS delivers accuracy from 10cm to 1cm, and does so even in challenging environments such as urban canyons and occluded sky-views.
Standard GNSS systems observe position uncertainty from sources such as atmospheric signal delay, satellite orbit variation, clock drift, and signal multi-path. Precision GNSS systems use additional sources of information, in our case from our Polaris corrections network, reducing uncertainty down to just a few centimeters.
Purchase a Standard Dev Kit, purchase an Advanced Development Kit, or create a Point One account to access Polaris corrections and services.
Many, including series production automobiles, consumer electronics products, and autonomous vehicle prototypes.
Real Time Kinematics; a fixed base station communicates with a roving GNSS system to remove sources of error common to the base and rover (satellite clock, satellite orbit, ionosphere delay, troposphere delay). Rover performance depends on survey accuracy of base location, quality of sky view at base location, and distance between base and rover.
Yes. The Polaris network performs as an NTRIP RTK network. Non-Point One systems can access the Polaris network using standard NTRIP protocol. Access credentials and documentation are available at app.pointonenav.com .
Both Polaris and NTRIP are methods for delivering network RTK corrections, and both are available through the Point One Polaris service. The NTRIP standard is a legacy delivery method, used by a wide range of GNSS devices. The Polaris protocol uses secure connection methods for both authentication and transport to add layers of reliability and security to RTK corrections data.
How It Works
We use signals from the GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, and BeiDou satellite constellations to determine globally consistent position. Our position engine and corrections networks both utilize multiple frequencies to improve accuracy and filter out noise and uncertainty.
Global accuracy is provided by our Polaris correction network, which increases satellite signal accuracy by over 100x, achieving accuracies of 5cm or better. Our correction network is built from proprietary hardware and software to provide maximum uptime, security and efficiency.
Our FusionEngine software resides in the host device and is adaptable to a wide array of compute platforms from low power microcontrollers to large centralized computers. FusionEngine is also available from our Certified Chipset partners in a ready-to-go package that minimizes design complexity and provides an efficient shortcut to mass production.
