Fixposition partners with Topcon to provide RTK correction services in North America, Europe
Fixposition will provide Topcon Position Systems correction services to Fixposition users in North America and Europe. This service comes after an agreement between Topcon and Fixposition. The network will complement the positioning capabilities of Fixposition's Vision-RTK 2 solution.
In areas where there are reliable GNSS signals, Vision-RTK 2 uses Topcon RTK correction to initialize at centimetre accuracy. In areas with disrupted GNSS signals, the Fixposition vision fusion takes over to maintain the accuracy of global position and pose estimation. The technology has already been adopted by many autonomy solution providers and OEMs of lawnmowers, ag-tech vehicles, and utility robots such as road sweepers. It helps them to extend precise operation into areas where it was not possible before.
"The agreement will provide Fixposition's end customer with a one-stop solution to have centimetre accuracy with one of the highest quality RTK base station networks," says Zhenzhong Su, CEO of Fixposition. "Customers are now able to buy the Vision-RTK 2 bundled with a one-year Topcon correction services subscription."
"We are excited to work with Fixposition to make stable and precise positioning accessible to the growing IoT and autonomy sectors," says Ian Stilgoe, vice president of emerging business at Topcon. "Our network services business gives us the flexibility to support truly innovative and unique offerings such as what Fixposition brings to market, and we are eager to contribute to their growing success."
