Piksi® Multi is a low-cost, high-performance GNSS receiver with Real Time Kinematics (RTK) technology for centimeter-level positioning accuracy. Its small form factor, fast position solution update rate and robust feature set make Piksi Multi ideal for integration into autonomous vehicles and robotics. Multi-band and multi-constellation support enable Piksi Multi to offer fast RTK convergence times. Integrated inertial measurement unit (IMU) and magnetometer enable sensor fusion techniques.
