The PCAN-GPS FD is a programmable sensor module for position and orientation determination with CAN FD connection. It has a satellite receiver, a magnetic field sensor, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope. Incoming sensor data is processed by the NXP microcontroller LPC54618 and then transmitted via CAN or CAN FD.
The behavior of the PCAN-GPS FD can be programmed freely for specific applications. The firmware is created using the included development package with GNU compiler for C and C++ and is then transferred to the module via CAN. Various programming examples facilitate the implementation of own solutions.
