u-blox 6 Dead Reckoning GPS chips

UBX-G6010-SA-DR GPS single chip with ADRAutomotive Dead Reckoning (ADR) is u-blox’ industry proven off-the-shelf Dead Reckoning solution for tier-one automotive customers. u-blox’ ADR solution combines GPS and sensor digital data using a tightly coupled Kalman filter. This improves position accuracy during periods of no or degraded GPS signal. ADR supports a variety of sensors (such as wheel ticks and gyroscope) and receives the sensor data via UBX messages from the application processor. Digital sensor data is available on the vehicle bus. This reduces hardware costs since no extra sensors are required for Dead Reckoning functionality. ADR is designed for simple integration and easy configuration of different sensor options (e.g. DR with or without gyroscope) and vehicle variants, and is completely self-calibrating.

u-blox ADR is available with UBX-G6010-SA-DR and UBX-G6010-ST-DR chips, or as an optional FW upgrade with the UBX-G6000/G0010 chipset. UBXG6010-SA-DR and UBX-G6010-ST-DR chips are pin compatible with standard UBX-G6010 chips.
