Point One Expands Footprint in Europe With Septentrio


Company to compete in competitive industrial autonomy, precision agriculture, logistics and delivery, robots and autonomous vehicles markets

San Francisco-based Point One Navigation, along with European partner Septentrio, have expanded their GNSS positioning solutions throughout Europe.  Point One Navigation is providing access to its Polaris RTK network and Sensor Fusion for compatible Septentrio receivers.

“We have also created development kits in our store that are configured to work with our software stack.  All of this, combined with our global network, means that users can get centimeter-level accuracy on GNSS,” said Aaron Nathan, Point One Navigation CEO and co-founder.  “Our expansion to Europe comes on top of a two solid years of market expansion, including two production automobiles, customers in robotics and drone partnerships.”

The companies are pursuing markets in Europe with tons of competition: industrial autonomy, precision agriculture, logistics and delivery, robots and autonomous vehicles.  “Key differentiators are coverage, reliability and developer friendliness.  We’re the only RTK network with global coverage that has a well-documented API,” Nathan said. “Specifically for autonomy applications, this allows the user to build applications on top of the precision location data.”

For its part, Septentrio said that Point One’s correction services have robustness, accuracy and availability in the Americas.  “Their recent expansion into the European Union is key for integrators wanting a transparent RTK service in both continents,” said Gustavo Lopez, Septentrio’s market access manager, in a statement.

Overall, Nathan said that the company has worked with Septentrio in the past, particularly in the autonomous vehicle space, and there is no end date to the relationship.
