Other tools to speed up robotic development
For prototyping, the mosaicHAT open-source board can be used to easily link the mosaic GNSS module to Raspberry Pi or even Arduino. This compact GNSS board with all basic communication interfaces (USB, serial port, events, PPS, FTDI) has an openly available reference design and footprint. Mowi is an open-source reference design for Septentrio’s highly accurate GNSS mosaic module with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communication, which can be programmed for custom applications adding a big value to connected robotics. See our Community page for more information on mosaicHAT, mowi and other open-source projects for GNSS integration.
UAV s and drones are also robots and are in some cases based on ROS. However, many other aerial systems use ArduPilot or PX4 Autopilot for flight control. Septentrio receivers also integrate easily with these SW packages, providing reliable positioning for safe drone navigation or mapping. For PX4 Autopilot there is a dedicated driver for Septentrio mosaic GNSS module and AsteRx-m3 board, for both single or dual antenna heading configuration.
