u-blox Intros New GNSS Module with Embedded Dead Reckoning
This week at the electronica trade show in Munich, wireless and positioning semiconductor vendor u-blox has introduced NEO-M8L, a new positioning module that embeds a 3D gyroscope and a 3D accelerometer.

Using the vehicle's speed information and module's onboard sensors enables accurate positioning in three dimensions, even when satellite signals are completely lost and the end-device installation is not horizontal. An odometer function, based on the ADR technology, also provides continuous distance travelled.

The compact module, measures 12.2 x 16.0 x 2.5 mm.

The module is able to track all visible GNSS satellites including GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS and all SBAS (European's Galileo will be support in a future firmware version). Concurrent reception of two GNSS systems is supported.

The NEO-M8L module can output a position up to 20 times per second.
