Trimble has expanded its CenterPoint RTX Fast correction service in North America and Europe.

RTX Fast reduces the convergence time — the duration needed to reach full precision accuracy — by up to 98 percent faster than other satellite-delivered correction services, Trimble said.

The service allows customers to realize horizontal positioning accuracy of better than 4 centimeters (1.5 inches) in as fast as one minute. With RTX Fast, farmers, surveyors, geographic information system (GIS) professionals and construction contractors can work faster, improve productivity, minimize input costs and reduce worker fatigue, Trimble added.

New RTX Fast services have recently launched in Switzerland, Slovakia, Northern Italy, Eastern Poland and the Southern regions of Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

In addition, Trimble has a 60 percent larger footprint in the Central U.S., including new coverage in Kentucky and Tennessee.

As the requirement for real-time, absolute positioning grows, Trimble is expanding its RTX Fast coverage to meet the demand both geographically and for the markets it serves, including new emerging applications in vehicle autonomy and location-based services.

The demand for real-time absolute positioning in driving applications continues to rise as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems mature and accuracy requirements become more stringent. RTX Fast provides the network enhancement necessary to deliver fast, high-accuracy RTX corrections for real-time positioning while on the road.

“Trimble RTX technology has been adding value to our core markets since its introduction in 2011. And, now we are demonstrating its capability in new applications such as autonomous driving solutions,” said Patricia Boothe, vice president of Trimble’s Advanced Positioning Division. “We are committed to expanding the reach, use and accessibility of Trimble RTX technology, reinforcing its position as a leading solution for improving GNSS performance.”
