NEO-M8P series - high precision M8 GNSS modules
NEO-M8P high precision GNSS modules combine the high performance u-blox M8 positioning engine with u-blox’s Real Time Kinematic (RTK) technology. The NEO-M8P provides cm-level GNSS performance designed to meet the needs of unmanned vehicles and other machine control applications requiring high precision guidance.
u-blox's RTK technology introduces the concept of a "rover" (NEO-M8P-0) and a "base" (NEO-M8P-2) on the M8 platform for outstanding cm-level accuracy in clear sky environments. The base station module sends corrections via the RTCM protocol to the rover module via a communication link, enabling the rover to output its position relative to the base station down to centimetre-level precision. This makes NEO-M8P ideal for applications that require vehicles to move faster and more accurately, operate more efficiently and automatically return to base station platforms. Such applications include UAV, unmanned vehicles (e.g. robotic lawn mowers), and Precision Agriculture guidance.

NEO‑M8P includes moving base, allowing both base and rover to move while computing a centimeter-level accurate position between them. Moving base is ideal for UAV applications where the UAV is programmed to follow its owner or to land on a moving platform. It is also well suited to attitude sensing applications where both base and rover modules are mounted on the same moving platform and the relative position is used to derive attitude information for the vehicle or tool.
