Welcome to Piksi, the ultra precise GPS Receiver for Autonomous Vehicle Systems

By on September 11, 2013

This device, particularly designed for applications in autonomous vehicle systems, has been recently funded on kickstarter.

 An RTK (Real Time Kinematic) GPS system gives positions that are 100 times more accurate than commercial receivers (down to centimeters)

What is Piksi?

Piksi is an RTK GPS receiver with open source software that costs one tenth the price of any other available RTK system.

We designed Piksi with the belief that providing this level of positioning precision at a radically lower cost would open it up to a much wider range of applications. We are particularly excited about its use in autonomous vehicle systems. Civilian and hobbyist use of UAVs has increased dramatically over the last few years, yet highly accurate, low cost localization solutions are not available yet. We hope that Piksi will help to fill this gap and push the envelope of what is possible with these systems.
