How Important is Vision for Autonomous Navigation?

Most autonomously navigating systems depend on GPS signals to determine their position and the direction in which they should travel next. GPS, however, is not always available to serve autonomous robot navigation systems. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, better known as IEEE, recommends a process called simultaneous localization and map building (SLAM) to […]

10 Creative Ways to Boost Your Robot’s GPS Signal

Maintaining clear lines of communication between your autonomous robots and GPS signals can be critical to the success of these projects. Finding ways to boost your robot’s GPS signal can allow it to function more effectively. Here are 10 of the most practical and creative ways to boost your GPS signal and reception for robotic […]

What is Dual GNSS and Why is It Important?

Have you ever wondered what’s underneath the hood of your autonomous robot or vehicle, or how it even works? Watch the video below as Walt explains how dual GNSS can help your device with accuracy.  RTK compassing is important because it can help to identify heading. This is important or valuable if you have […]

The Number One Reason to Add An Additional GPS to Your Rover

Your rover depends on global positioning to determine its location and to navigate familiar and unfamiliar terrain successfully. The primary reason to increase the number of receivers on your GPS rover is heading accuracy. Upgrading from a single system to multiple receivers is typically a cost-effective method of improving accuracy for geolocation. Increased heading accuracy […]

What is Multi-Band GNSS and Why Should You Care About It?

Multi-Band GNSS is not so new to the world of autonomy. Watch the video below as Walt Johnson explains why we as autonomy enthusiasts should care about it today.  Multi-band GNSS gives you the ability to observe the air in a signal that is retained from satellites where it contains multiple frequencies. This allows […]

Where is Autonomous Navigation Going in the Next 5 Years?

What if you could have your groceries or take-out delivered by a driverless car? Or what if a package you ordered was delivered by a drone? Watch the video below as Joshua predicts where autonomous navigation is going in the next 5 years.  Autonomous navigation will become more natural in the coming years. We […]

What’s the Difference Between GPS and GNSS?

To this day, the question that still circulates: what is the difference between GPS and GNSS? Watch the video below as Carson explains the difference!  We know GPS as the go-to for finding an address, a restaurant, any location, and even being able to share your location with others. But there is more to […]

The Limitations of Autonomous Navigation

Are you curious about what Inertial Sense is doing to address the limitations of autonomous navigation? The reality is that space is limited when it comes to autonomous navigation for mobile devices, based on how good our sensors are and how well we can make choices. Watch the video below as Joshua explains how Inertial […]

How to Lose Money When Buying an IMU Sensor

Purchasing an Inertial Measurement Unit, more commonly referred to as an IMU sensor, can be a tricky process. Because the price range and capabilities of these autonomous devices can vary so widely, it is easy to overspend on IMUs that may not be suited to your specific set of needs. At Inertial Sense, we offer […]
