The ANavS® A-ROX module provides precise position, velocity and attitude information, by tightly coupling GNSS, IMU and odometer data, and applying PPP or RTK corrections to the GNSS code and phase measurements. 

The A-ROX version supports Galileo High Accuracy Service (HAS) service (both via SIS and IDD) and OSNMA for navigation data accuracy. 

 The A-ROX system comes with a ROS2 software architecture, which leads to access to all sensor raw data and solution outputs with ROS2 topics. This software architecture makes it very powerful for an easy integration in other toolchains and subsystems.  

A powerful Web-App completes the ecosystem of A-ROX. The new interface will make the system more accessible and user friendly. It will also open the door for its integration in fleet management systems, with the option to control all the devices in a centralised manner. A powerful postprocessing tool is hosted in the web-app.

Overview A-ROX

The A-ROX GNSS-INS tightly coupled positioning is the real-time ground truth measurement equipment for dynamic automotive, railway and maritime applications. It is used for ADAS and autonomous vehicle testing, endurance tests, fleet tests, survey and mapping from land, water and air, georeferencing of cameras, lidars and radar sensors, logging of parameters during vehicle tests and machine automation.

Three different versions of A-ROX are available:

  • A-ROX-PRO
  • A-ROX-RTK
  • A-ROX-PPP
  • ADAS
  • Autonomous vehicle testing
  • Endurance tests
  • Fleet tests
  • Survey & mapping from land, water and air
  • Georeferencing of cameras, lidars and radar sensors
  • Logging of parameters during vehicle tests (CAN)
  • Machine automation

The patented tightly coupled sensor fusion algorithms integrate survey-grade GNSS raw measurement data (multi-constellation, multi-frequency), RTK and PPP (HAS and terrestrial) correction data, inertial sensor data (FOG-grade MEMS IMU) and odometry data for a highly accurate position, velocity and attitude solution, even in challenging GNSS environments. A smart handover from RTK to PPP technology, based on the reception of correction data, provides a unique positioning performance. A powerful forward-backward post-processing engine is available to further enhance the accuracy of the position, velocity and attitude solution with all recorded sensor raw data.

The A-ROX system is built on a new modular hardware platform, delivering improved processing capabilities and upgraded interfaces. The system can be configured with single, dual or triple GNSS antenna (s). The processing unit is part of the A-ROX system. A powerful configuration and visualization software is implemented as a web app, easily accessible from different kinds of devices, including laptops and tablets. It is directly hosted on the system with no need for installation of software on your device. On top of the local app, a cloud-based fleet management feature is available for controlling all you’re aROX devices and accessing all sensor data from anywhere.

The A-ROX system comes with integrated 5G module, providing access to RTK and PPP correction data and enabling remote view and system configuration very user-friendly.

Further interfaces are:

  • Wi-Fi
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • USB-C
  • up to 4 CAN-FD channels

 

Trigger events, like wheel ticks, can be fed through the GPIOs into the sensor fusion framework.

There are several output formats available with a maximum rate of 200 Hz (1000 Hz optional):

  • ROS 2
  • NMEA
  • ACOM
  • CAN
