VBOX Indoor Positioning System (VIPS)




The VBOX Indoor Positioning System (VIPS) is a highly accurate way of measuring speed, position and attitude in areas where GNSS is not available. A network of independent beacons are placed around the edges of the test area, which communicate with a receiver (rover) mounted on the roof of a vehicle, using UWB.

The rover features an integrated VBOX IMU04 (Inertial Measurement Unit) for precise pitch, roll and yaw angular data. It also connects directly to a VBOX 3i, enabling additional parameters from the vehicle’s CAN bus to be logged.

When combined with a VBOX 3i, the system offers seamless integration between indoor environments (using VIPS) and outdoor environments (using GNSS). The system can be used for high dynamic applications and the rover will automatically connect to the nearest beacons in range.

More information about the VBOX Indoor Positioning System can be found on our website.
