Product Information

Product Description

This standalone GPS-to-CAN module produces GNSS position and 3D inertial data (via a gyroscope & accelerometer) and outputs it via configurable CAN bus frames.

The module supports 'Untethered Dead Reckoning' - meaning that even if the GNSS signal is lost entirely, the module can deliver continuous positioning through IMU-based estimates (no external inputs required).

You can integrate the module with any CAN bus, e.g. vehicle networks or CAN hardware. As an example, you can use it as a plug & play add-on module for the CANedge.

Antenna Included

Features

Features of the CANmod.gps


  • PLUG & PLAY: Standalone - no PC required. Integrate with any CAN bus to add GNSS/IMU data. DBC included
  • COMPACT: Only 7 x 2 x 5 CM. 70G. Alu enclosure. 4 LEDs. 5-26 V DC via DB9. USB for config/firmware
  • USE GLOBALLY: 1 Hz GNSS position. Hot start via battery backup. GPS, Galileo, BeiDou, GLONASS
  • INERTIAL DATA: Built-in gyroscope (roll, pitch, yaw) and accelerometer (X, Y, Z). 100 Hz frequency
  • SENSOR FUSION: High precision position and attitude data via sensor fusion of the GNSS/IMU
  • CONFIGURABLE: Configure CAN IDs, bit rate, data frequency & geofences via JSON config and GUI
