If You Know Exactly Where You Are,

You Decide Exactly Where You Go!

We offer State-of-the-Art positioning systems for all mobile applications. Kindhelm’s IPESSA family products consist of the latest satellite positioning technology fused with industry leading inertial sensors. This fusion between RTK GNSS and IMU sensor modalities provides accurate 3D position and 3D orientation of the moving body. These are the fundamental information for any self-navigating system on land, in air and at sea.

Whether you need just precise positioning (GNSS), an attitude heading reference system (AHRS) or an inertial navigation system (INS) we have the solution for you. Our novel sensor fusion technology provides you the better positioning solution and performance beyond GNSS. Inertial navigation and dead reckoning technologies allow safe and accurate navigation through urban canyons and GNSS denied areas.

Kindhelm provides a wide range of positioning solutions from cost optimized models to high performance units to fit your needs. Our products follow high industrial standards to meet your requirements. We also support most of the common interfaces and protocols for easy integration on any navigation system. Therefore, IPESSA is an ideal solution for any OEM and system integrator.

Our long experience in various positioning and navigation technologies with unmanned vehicles together with expertise in system engineering, project management and global business ensures high quality products and smooth customer experiences.

Custom Made Solutions to Fit Your Vehicles and Vessels

Applications

Automatic steering and guidance systems are leading technologies in precision agriculture. They assist the driver to control their machine for optimal results. However, guidance can never be better than the positioning. Therefore, an accurate and reliable positioning module is needed in all precise guidance systems.

Agricultural robotics take the automation even further. Robots can complete repetitive tasks from start to the end without human interaction. Therefore, the precision and reliability requirements in robotic applications are even higher. Furthermore, the role of functional safety increases.

Accurate positioning can be used to localize timber in the forest. Additionally, it allows the optimization of the routes of the heavy machinery. In result, it helps to minimize operating costs and damage to the ground and trees.

RTK GNSS / INS

Sensor Fusion Beyond GNSS

Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) based absolute positioning systems (including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou) are the basis of all outdoor navigation systems. Real-Time Kinematics (RTK) is a method to augment the GNSS positioning accuracy down to centimeter precision.

Complementing the GNSS position with an inertial measurement unit (IMU) provides the accurate 3D orientation of the moving body in a global frame, making it a complete solution for all positioning and navigation applications. IMU measurements allow to compensate for the tilt angle of the device and to always provide the correct result in mobile and stationary use cases.

We offer a wide range of positioning solutions with various features to fit your needs. We offer various wireless connectivity solutions such as 4G-LTE cellular data, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Whatever the case, the core of our solution is always in fusion with RTK GNSS and IMU for best performance in all conditions.
