Leuven-based Septentrio has announced a new collaboration with Analog Devices (ADI). The duo is looking to combine the Belgians’ multi-frequency, multi-constellation global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receivers with the American company’s high-quality inertial measurement unit (IMU). The resulting high-performance GNSS/INS systems should deliver centimeter-accurate positioning together with 3D orientation (heading, pitch and roll), which is ideal for applications such as automotive ADAS and industrial automation.

According to Septentrio, this collaboration allows it to provide faster and more efficient GNSS/INS integration solutions for high-volume customers, with the first products expected to be available by spring 2020. “ADI’s high-end industrial IMU systems are a reference in the industry and we’re very pleased to be working together with them,” says Danilo Sabbatini, a product manager at Septentrio. “Combining their IMU experience with our GNSS expertise enables the creation of high-performance, easy-to-integrate systems that allow our customers to tackle demanding applications. As a result, customers can expect a faster go-to-market due to the interoperability between the GNSS and INS components.”
