ACEINNA, a developer of inertial-based guidance and navigation systems for autonomous vehicles and devices, announced the commercial availability of OpenARC, a precise positioning hardware and software platform that offers system integration of GNSS corrections with high performance INS and RTK hardware. OpenARC is powered by Point One Navigation, a provider delivering precise positioning for the next generation of transportation.

The streamlined OpenARC positioning platform combines Point One’s Polaris GNSS correction service with ACEINNA’s OpenRTK330 hardware and software solution for developers of autonomous systems in trucking, precision agriculture, construction, mapping, surveying, and robotics. OpenARC provides high precision and confidence in positioning and localization applications, enabling centimeter-level accuracy for challenging tasks such as lane keeping, precision agricultural guidance, and UAV landing maneuvers.

Topcon: next level precision

OpenARC is integrated into the OpenRTK330LI navigation module to provide a secure, vertically integrated, and easy-to-use positioning platform. OpenARC is scalable, supporting single unit installations to high-volume deployments.

OpenARC is powered by Point One’s proprietary Polaris GNSS cloud correction service built from the ground up for the needs of modern automotive and robotics customers. Polaris delivers high station density in areas where operators need it the most, including urban centers and suburban surrounding areas, enabling cold convergence times of under 10 seconds.

Polaris provides continuous position monitoring, tracking all modern satellite constellations. Fully owned by Point One, the Polaris network uses base-station technology including advanced anti-jam, interference mitigation, security, and integrity monitoring. Its cloud-based correction architecture allows for GNSS corrections in Real Time Kinematic (RTK) or State Space Representation (SSR) configuration. Its open-source interfaces demonstrate compatibility with receivers and chipsets from leading providers. The service is also compatible with any NTRIP/RTCM3 compliant receiver.
