Piksi Multi is a multi-band, multi-constellation RTK GNSS receiver board that provides centimeter-level accurate positioning at a low cost.
Being multi-band means fast convergence times measured in seconds, not minutes. Access to multiple satellite constellations improves availability, reliability and range between base and rover. With Piksi Multi, you’ll benefit from faster system start times and reacquisition, critical to robotic systems. It’s easy to get started with a comprehensive Piksi Multi Evaluation Kit.
Piksi Multi supports GPS L1/L2, GLONASS G1/G2, BeiDou B1/B2, Galileo E1/E5b for RTK measurements and positioning and SBAS for robust sub-meter positioning in non-RTK mode. Additional constellations create more robust positioning performance in a variety of challenging skyview environments.
RTK corrects for ionospheric and atmospheric errors that traditional GPS receivers encounter, enabling the multi-band, multi-constellation Piksi Multi to deliver localization that is 100 times more accurate than traditional GPS. The centimeter-level accuracy that Piksi Multi delivers is critical for the safety and performance of autonomous applications.
Runs Starling Positioning Engine
Piksi Multi utilizes Swift’s Starling software positioning engine. Starling is an advanced GNSS RTK positioning engine that enhances the measurements of GNSS receivers—including Piksi Multi—to provide true precision and integrity capabilities. Starling allows Piksi Multi to support multiple constellations.
Ease of Integration
Piksi Multi is easily integrated into a variety of applications and platforms. Piksi Multi features multiple high-density I/O connectors to help provide a smooth and simple integration experience. Get started with a Piksi Multi Evaluation Kit that contains everything needed for rapid RTK prototyping, testing and evaluation.
Swift Navigation is built on the notion that highly-precise RTK solutions should be offered at an affordable price. Piksi Multi embraces the foundation of unmatched affordability and is available at a much lower cost than comparable systems.
Small Form Factor
Smaller than a standard credit card, Piksi Multi’s small form factor that is compatible with common GNSS modules makes it ideal to integrate into a variety of GNSS applications including autonomous vehicles, robotics and unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
