GPS receiver with ADR

u-blox rolls out GPS based Automotive Dead Reckoning (ADR) solution is completely self-calibrating, and requires no pre-configuration. The Automotive Dead Reckoning (ADR), inputs from GPS satellites with vehicle sensors to determine position even where GPS signals are blocked or weak. It is compatible with virtually any car model or drive train type.

ADR has been implemented in in-dash navigation and eCall systems at Tier-1 automotive car electronics suppliers to top German auto makers. Dead reckoning capability is becoming a standard feature in all in-car navigation and telematics systems, a market which is predicted to grow at a rate of 20 per cent per year, from 2 crore (20 million) units sold in 2010 to 4.90 crore (49 million) units in 2015.

ADR requires no customisation and runs entirely on the GPS chip. The off-the-shelf solution requires minimum integration efforts, reducing risk, cost, and time-to-market.

In addition to vehicle navigation, ADR supports a growing number of safety, security and road-pricing applications such as emergency call, pay-as-you-drive insurance, road pricing, and stolen vehicle tracking. The solution ensures uninterrupted navigation and tracking using aiding data from wheel tick sensors and optional gyroscope acquired from the vehicle data bus.

The solution runs on u blox's automotive grade GPS receiver chips which are all AEC-Q100 compliant and manufactured according to the TS-16949 Quality Management Standard.
