NovAtel Positioning Kits

We have worked very closely with the team at NovAtel to develop the best GNSS solutions for your autonomous vehicle research & development. All kits, with the exception of Kit 3, are supplied with the NovAtel PwrPak7 all-in-one SPAN enclosure with Dual-antenna capability. For the best accuracy possible the PwrPak7 can be paired with an RTK base station. The PwrPak7D receivers have been paired with varying IMU models depending on your accuracy requirements as well as two GNSS-502 dual frequency low-profile antennas with magnetic roof-mounts for easy installation.
