GPS/Air pressure integrated position sensor ZMP® Position-Z 2

ZMP® Position-Z2


This product is a sensor module that integrates GPS and barometric pressure sensor and outputs measured data in CAN format.
In addition to US GPS, it corresponds to the Japanese quasi-zenith satellite "MICHIBIKI" and Russian "GLONUS".
The number of corresponding satellites has doubled and the positioning sensitivity in valleys of buildings etc., has improved due to the liberty located just above Japan.
Measurement data is output in CAN format, so it can be used in combination with vehicle information, combined with other measuring instruments and data loggers.
The acquired GPS data can be converted to KML file and can be displayed on Google map.
Furthermore, by connecting with our 9-axis Wireless Motion Sensor ZMP® IMU-Z2, it is possible to simultaneously acquire position information (GPS + Atmospheric pressure) and behaviour information (Acceleration / Gyro / Geomagnetic).

Products include a sensor module, viewer software for displaying measurement status in real time and
it includes a software development environment that can utilize sensor data from other systems.

【Main application】
· For position measurement of car, ship, construction equipment, agricultural equipment etc.
· Research on regenerative energy of electric vehicles
. Control of the aircraft using altitude and barometric pressure data
· Development of equipment requiring position information, control of moving objects
· By cooperating with the motion sensor ZMP® IMU-Z2, it is possible to simultaneously measure the position information and behavior of a moving object such as a car, a ship, a construction equipment, an agricultural equipment

【Major features】
·​ ​In addition to US GPS, it corresponds to Japanese quasi-zenith satellite "MICHIBIKI", Russian "GLONUS"
· Plot position information on Google Maps
· Integrated GPS and atmospheric pressure sensor. In addition to the latitude, longitude and altitude of GPS, it is possible to estimate altitude change with an atmospheric pressure sensor
· Wireless connection is possible by using in conjunction with ZMP® IMU - Z2 or Cartomo® UP PRO.
· Application development environment (SDK) is included
· Provide ZMP® Position-Z2 communication library as .NET component
· Easy to build applications with Visual Studio
· Easy logging with in-vehicle data logger due to CAN communication
· A mode that can freely change the CAN-ID of UTC time and latitude / longitude is prepared and can be easily incorporated into existing CAN systems.
