VN-200 Surface Mount GPS/INS
GPS / INS Kalman Filter Algorithms
The VN-200 incorporates the latest advancements in Aerospace grade Kalman filter inertial navigation algorithms specifically tailored to solve problems typically faced by industrial users. Industrial control applications require high accuracy low latency position, velocity, and attitude measurements. GPS provides long-term position accuracy, but is incapable of providing low-latency high bandwidth measurements. Inertial sensors provide high bandwidth acceleration and angular rates, but cannot provide long-term position and orientation accuracy due to drift and integration errors. Utilizing an onboard Extended Kalman Filter the VN-200 is capable of combining in an optimal manner the high bandwidth inertial measurements with the high accuracy low bandwidth GPS measurements. The VN-200 provides industrial users with access to a continuous stream of low latency high accuracy position velocity and attitude measurements at a rate of up to 200Hz.
