Robotic Research will showcase its RR-N-140 navigation system at Booth #407 at AUVSI Xponential 2019, which takes place April 29-May 2 in Chicago.

The system provides accurate, absolute and relative 3D (six-degrees-of-freedom, or 6 DOF) localization information for ground vehicles of all sizes.

The device delivers exceptional localization performance in GPS‐denied or compromised areas. It is designed specifically for use on unmanned ground vehicles and is heavily customizable to incorporate a wide variety of sensor inputs into the navigation solution.

Robotic Research develops and deploys autonomous vehicle innovations for both commercial and government customers.

Features of the RR-N-140 include:

  • Accurate, real-time navigation/localization solution for wheeled or tracked ground vehicles
  • Adaptable for use on surface vessels
  • Exceptional localization performance in GPS-denied or compromised areas
  • Dual antenna GNSS for zero-speed heading detection and redundancy
  • Rugged IP67 Construction designed to meet shock and vibration environments typical of military vehicles
  • Up to 4X configurable vehicle speed / encoder inputs
  • Configurable GNSS and IMU options allow tailored solutions for all levels of performance
  • Customizable to directly interface with and process a variety of sensor inputs (e.g. LADAR, Stereo and Monocular Cameras, Ultra-Wideband Ranging Radios)
  • Easy integration with the Robotic Research Warfighter Localization family of systems (WarLoc)
  • Web interface for user-level diagnostics and configuration
  • Ethernet, CANbus, and RS-232 Serial Data Interfaces
  • Independent Ethernet ports for separation of navigation solution and sensor processing data
  • Robust Built-in-test (BIT) error reporting during runtime
  • Redundant IMU and GNSS options available for fault-tolerance
  • NTP Server and GPS PPS signals for time synchronization
  • Low SWAP
  • 7.2”L x 6.4” W x 2.9” H
  • 4.0 lbs
  • 22W at 9.5-36 VDC
