Point One Navigation Releases the Atlas Real-Time Inertial Navigation System

Designed for developers and manufacturers of autonomous vehicles, robots, mapping and photogrammetry applications, Atlas is the world’s most advanced RTK network, positioning hardware and engine, all in one package.

Point One Navigation, a leader in cutting-edge location technology, proudly introduces the Atlas Inertial Navigation System (INS). Atlas represents a leap forward in real-time precision location technology, offering unprecedented accuracy and affordability to autonomous vehicles, mapping, and other applications.


Legacy INS solutions require extensive post-processing to achieve the high levels of precision required for highly accurate mapping and observability applications. Until now, these post-processing workflows were out of reach for many, coming at a high price point and on top of being both time- and labor-intensive. Post-processing software alone can cost upwards of $20,000 and hours of compute and engineering time to operate. Atlas provides ground-truth level accuracy in real time, simplifying engineering workflows, dramatically reducing costs, and enhancing operational efficiency.

The Atlas is designed for deployment in large fleets. Through a tight integration of highly accurate, low cost GNSS receiver and IMU with the Polaris RTK corrections network and Sensor Fusion algorithms, Point One brought down hardware cost dramatically without sacrificing accuracy or precision. With an accessible starting price of $6,500, businesses will no longer have to pick and choose which vehicles are equipped with the high-accuracy INS. This affordability removes the barriers to entry and allows for companies to equip their entire autonomous fleet with ground-truth level precision location.

Atlas features a smart, easy to use user interface, on-device data storage, ethernet and Wi-Fi. Field engineers can easily configure and operate Atlas using smartphones, tablets, and in-car displays.

"We envision a future where businesses, researchers, and automotive companies can harness the power of cm-level real-time accuracy without the complexities and cost associated with post-processing. Atlas is not just a product; it's a revolution that will redefine what's possible in the world of precision location," said Aaron Nathan, Point One's CEO and co-founder.
Atlas is set to drive innovation in various sectors, including automotive, autonomous vehicles, robotics, mapping, and photogrammetry. Its real-time capabilities and affordability will allow for fleet-level deployments of ground truth-level location.

FAULHABER MICROMO - Impressive accuracy through the latest chip technology

FAULHABER MICROMO - Impressive accuracy through the latest chip technology

With the launch of the IEP3, FAULHABER expands its product line with an incremental encoder which, thanks to the latest chip technology, achieves a very high resolution and accuracy. With a diameter of just 8 mm, the IEP3 is very lightweight and compact yet still offers a resolution of up to 10,000 lines per revolution - made possible by the latest chip technology with high interpolation. In the standard version, the resolution is freely programmable from 1 - 4,096 lines per revolution. Moreover, the chip technology that is used ensures a high positional accuracy of typically 0.3 °m as well as a high repeatability of typically 0.05 °m thanks to accuracy compensation.
