Movella, a leading provider of sensors and software, has launched a partnership with Fixposition, a manufacturer of precise positioning sensors. The partnership aims to develop and commercialize GNSS inertial navigation sensors and implement visual inertial odometry through new products.

In December 2022, Movella and Fixposition launched the first product from the partnership, the Xsens Vision Navigator. This product integrates position inputs from three high-accuracy sources including dual-antenna RTK GNSS receivers, an IMU incorporating a three-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer and a visual inertial odometry system.

The Xsens Vision Navigator can optionally accept inputs from an external wheel speed sensor. The positioning sensor achieves centimeter-level accuracy when operating in GNSS mode with an RTK fix. When GNSS signals are not available, the product alone achieves an accuracy of 2% of travel distance, or 0.75% when supplemented by wheel speed.

Xsens Vision Navigator is suitable for outdoor positioning applications such as material handling equipment, commercial and specialist vehicles, last-mile delivery, inspection equipment and UAVs, agricultural equipment, mining equipment and utility robots.

Xsens Vision Navigator is available now from Movella or authorized distributors of Xsens products.
