PointPerfect is designed to deliver an advanced GNSS augmentation data service.

The service enables high precision GNSS solutions, including autonomous vehicles such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), service robots, machinery automation, micro mobility, and other advanced navigation applications. Emerging automotive applications include automated driving (AD) and advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), lane-accurate navigation, and telematics.

Delivered via mobile internet or L-band satellite signals, PointPerfect broadcasts on a continental scale with homogeneous coverage in Europe and the contiguous USA, including up to 12 nautical miles (roughly 22 kilometers) off coastlines to any number of end-devices, delivering sub-10-centimeter positioning accuracy and convergence of just seconds. Furthermore, adopting the SPARTN messaging format combined with the lightweight and secure MQTT IoT delivery protocol results in a real-time, bandwidth-optimized, cost-efficient solution suitable for mass-market applications.

PointPerfect cooperates with u-blox positioning and connectivity hardware, providing a solution from silicon to cloud. Because it is based on the open SPARTN GNSS correction data format, its use is not restricted to a single hardware provider.

PointPerfect is delivered via the Thingstream IoT service delivery platform, an enterprise-grade cloud platform proven to support billions of messages. Thingstream provides a self-serve environment where users can manage their device fleet. The service is backed by a full warranty, 99.9% uptime availability, and 24/7 reliability. In-house development of all the technological building blocks ensures expert technical support while eliminating any external dependencies that could otherwise lead to delays.
