MEN Micro releases the PX1 PCI express mini card that uses a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receiver to handle data transmissions from both GPS and GLONASS systems. The board supports both active and passive antennas and improves satellite-based communication worldwide. A gyroscope sensor enables dead reckoning functionality, ensuring accurate position identification even when a satellite signal is interrupted, such as driving through a tunnel. This functionality and the GNSS receiver make the PX1 suitable for fleet management applications where commercial vehicles, including trains, buses, ships, and airplanes, travel across wide geographic ranges. Various satellite-based augmentation systems that improve the accuracy, reliability, and availability of the GNSS information also are supported by the PX1 for increased positioning accuracy.
