The Starter Set Super-NIA-3D is based on Super-Beacons.
All essential SW as well as Marvelmind Dashboard API are already included in the price. Just download the Marvelmind SW pack: https://marvelmind.com/download/ => https://marvelmind.com/pics/marvelmind_SW.zip.
Super-Beacons are a newer version of Beacons HW v4.9 and superior to them in nearly all aspects:
Super-Beacons support both IA and NIA. Notice, that the set is purely NIA, i.e. all ultrasonic transducers are on the same frequency 31kHz. See more about architectures. But you can purchase additional Super-Beacons on other ultrasonic frequencies (19kHz, 25kHz, 37kHz, 45kHz) and re-use earlier purchased 31kHz Super-Beacons and to build IA systems.
All beacons (stationary and mobile) are equipped with with 6D IMU (3D accelerometer + 3D gyroscope) and standard 50mm antennas. Effectively, you are getting 5 absolutely similar Super-Beacons
The HW of the system supports two bands:
We always recommend to check your country’s local regulations.
Marvelmind Indoor Navigation System is off-the-shelf indoor navigation system designed to provide precise (±2cm) location data to autonomous robots, vehicles (AGV), and copters. It can also be used to track other objects with a mobile beacon installed on them, for example, forklifts in warehouses or virtual reality (VR) helmets or helmets for construction workers or miners, etc.
The navigation system is based on stationary ultrasonic beacons united by radio interface in a license-free band (915/868 MHz ). The location of a mobile beacon is calculated based on the propagation delay of an ultrasonic signal (Time-Of-Flight or TOF) to a set of stationary ultrasonic beacons using trilateration. No manual calibration is required. No need to know exact locations of the beacons – the system builds the map of beacons automatically.
The set contains a mobile beacon with IMU that gives a possibility for ultrasonic + IMU (3D accelerometer + 3D gyro) fusion. That allows much faster update rate – up to 100Hz and above.
Key requirements proper system functionality:
Distance between beacons
Location update rate
