The Super-Beacon is the most versatile, easy-to-use, and recommended beacon for Marvelmind precise indoor positioning and navigation system, particularly when starting with the Marvelmind Indoor “GPS” system.
The system is used for autonomous robots, forklifts, drones, and people, as well as for industrial applications requiring precise positioning and localization indoors.
See detailed specifications for the Super-Beacon.
The beacon can also be used for precise distance measurement of up to 50m (1D) or up to 120m (1D) with Marvelmind Horn.
Super-Beacon is a dual-use beacon – it can both receive and transmit ultrasonic pulses.
It can work both as stationary and as mobile.
The Super-Beacon Beacon can be used in Non-Inverse Architecture (NIA), Multi-Frequency NIA (MF NIA), and Inverse Architecture (IA): Architecture comparison.
Ultrasound frequency selection:
The Super-Beacon supports a license-free 915MHz ISM band (for example, US, Japan, Korea) and a license-free SRD band 868MHz (for example, EU, Russia). Support of the 433MHz ISM band (EU) comes with a larger order.
All Super-Beacons have 6D IMU (3D gyro + 3D accelerometer) onboard.
Comparison with other beacons:
The Super-Beacon is improved and in an all-the-way superior version of the Beacon HW v4.9:
The Super-Beacons have superseded the Beacon HW v4.9, which have already been discontinued.
