Point One unveils Atlas real-time inertial navigation system

Point One Navigation proudly introduces the Atlas Inertial Navigation System (INS). Atlas has been 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. Moreover, this was achieved without sacrificing accuracy or precision. With an accessible starting price of $6,500. Businesses will no longer need to pick and choose which vehicles will have the high-accuracy INS. Furthermore, 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. Furthermore, field engineers can easily configure and operate Atlas using smartphones, tablets, and in-car displays. 

Atlas represents a leap forward in real-time precision location technology. It offers unprecedented accuracy and affordability to autonomous vehicles, mapping, and other applications.

Legacy INS solutions require extensive post-processing. This is necessary 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 due to their high price point. Additionally, they were both time- and labor-intensive. Post-processing software alone can cost upwards of $20,000 and hours of compute and engineering time to operate. Moreover, Atlas provides ground-truth level accuracy in real time, simplifying engineering workflows, dramatically reducing costs, and enhancing operational efficiency.

“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 isn’t just a product; it’s a revolution that will redefine possibilities 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. Moreover, its real-time capabilities and affordability will allow for fleet-level deployments of ground truth-level location.
