Clearblade logo

The Septentrio GNSS adapter provides the ability for the ClearBlade platform to communicate with Septentrio GNSS receivers. The adapter subscribes to MQTT topics which are used to interact with the receiver. The adapter publishes any data retrieved from the receiver to MQTT topics so that the ClearBlade Platform can retrieve and process GNSS receiver related data or execute (write) commands to Septentrio GNSS receiver devices.

mosaicHat is an open source HAT (addon) for Raspberry PI Hardware. The HAT integrates the mosaic-x5 in a small and lean GNSS board with basic communication interfaces (USB, serial port, events, PPS, FTDI and power). It is fully documented, the reference design and the footprint are made available and can also be used to spinoff other mosaic based hardware projects.

Mowi is an open-source reference design for Septentrio’s highly accurate GNSS mosaic module with the ESP32 module providing Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communication in a single board, which is also programmable for custom applications. Numerous engineers today use the ESP32 and the multiple libraries available for Internet-of-Things (IoT) prototyping. The mowi board is an easy way for integrators to get started with Septentrio’s mosaic-X5 or mosaic-H GNSS module receivers benefitting from the module’s Ethernet capabilities for best connectivity. By using mowi alone or plugging mowi into a Raspberry Pi, Arduino or other compatible mobile computers, users have access to high-accuracy positioning which combined with wireless communication make it ideal for IoT, machine navigation, remote control or even monitoring applications.
