Trimble introduces GNSS receiver module for autonomy
By Catrin Jones08 June 2022
Trimble has introduced the BD9250, a dual-frequency OEM GNSS receiver module that supports Trimble RTX correction services. The receiver is said to be designed to deliver high-accuracy positioning for a range of high volume, autonomous-ready applications used in the construction and robotics industry.
The BD9250 is a compact receiver with an industry-standard form factor and pinout, allowing for easy system integration and configuration. Equipped with Trimble’s advanced ProPoint positioning engine, the BD9250 is said to deliver robust and accurate positioning.
Trimble says that the BD9250 receiver is compatible with Trimble RTX correction services or RTK and supports all major GNSS constellations, including GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS and NavIC.
The receivers include the capability to enable system integrators to choose either the L2 or L5 frequency to optimise signal performance and maximise the number of measurements available to the GNSS engine.
Finlay Wood, general manager (off-road) at Trimble Autonomy, says, “The BD9250 provides centimetre-level RTX accuracy without the need of a base station. This OEM GNSS board is ideal for high-volume autonomy applications that require precise positioning, without sacrificing accuracy, availability or integrity—enabling integrators to bring systems to market faster.”
