Latest NAVsuite and RT-Range releases enhance usability and GNSS-denied navigation capability!

Company News April 11, 2024

OxTS Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) give our customers the ability to build systems and software that improve the way we live our lives. Whilst our hardware gives users the raw data they need to validate the performance of a new ADAS feature, or accurately georeference LiDAR data, our software plays a crucial role in extracting real value from the measurements.

It’s therefore our job to ensure that our customers have the tools they need to continue the great work they already do and the latest versions of NAVsuite and RT-Range Suite do just that.

What is RT-Range Suite and NAVsuite?

RT-Range Suite

RT-Range suite enables Engineers to configure ADAS test scenarios, that are compatible with industry safety standards such as Euro NCAP, IIHS and others.

Engineers can survey lanes to generate map files, configure detailed 2D profiles of Hunter and Target vehicles, as well as map up to 12 independent sensor points and their field of view on the Hunter vehicle.

NAVsuite is a complimentary set of software tools that users of OxTS INS devices can use to interact with their device. Each application includes a range of flexible features that can be used to ensure accurate data collection.

Engineers can use NAVsuite to configure their INS, monitor the data in real-time, post-process the data and visualise the information for post-mission analysis.

What's new in RT-Range?

RT-Range is used by many of the world’s most innovative and forward thinking automotive and autonomous vehicle manufacturers to help them analyse the performance of their vehicle under test (VUT).




Providing them with the measurements they need to make critical development decisions, RT-Range contains a number of features that ensures these decisions are made based on accurate and reliable vehicle behaviour information.

The latest version contains several updates including:


Vehicle origin point makes polygon measurements easier to obtain


You can now configure a vehicle origin point anywhere on your vehicle under test (VUT). This origin point is used instead of the INS for your polygon and sensor point measurements, making them far easier to obtain. You still need to configure a lever arm from your INS to your origin point, but now you can set your origin point at the place to give you the easiest (and most accurate) measurement.

Polygon configuration tool simplifies creating a polygon of your vehicle


The Polygon Configuration Tool is another method for measuring your vehicle polygon. It works very simply:

+ Once your INS is initialised and you have achieved RTK accuracy, stop the car.

+ Open RT-Range.

+ Remove a GNSS antenna, and walk it around the edge of your vehicle (ideally using a survey pole).

+ As you move around the car, select ‘commit from RT’ whenever you want to add a point to the polygon. The INS will then use the position of the antenna to survey the point.

+ Once you’ve completed a lap of the car, the tool will create the polygon automatically. Replace your antenna and off you go!

The whole process takes just a few minutes and is highly accurate, so you can spend less time hunting out saved polygons and more time testing.

Collision confirmation gives quick verification of impact


This is a new measurement available to you that tells you in simple yes/no terms whether two polygons have intersected. This makes it much simpler to work out if your VUT has crashed into something else (whether intentionally or otherwise!) and speeds up the processing of your data after testing.


As with all our software updates, head over to our support site to download the update and for instructions on how to install it. And that’s it – you’re good to go!

And, of course, if you’re not yet an RT-Range user but you’ve been so amazed at the potential of these new features for your own ADAS testing workflows, you can contact us to talk about your setup and how RT-Range can help.


What's new in NAVsuite 3.11?

NAVsuite line-up


NAVsuite contains all of the applications a user needs to use their INS effectively. A free-of-charge addition to every OxTS INS, NAVsuite gives you the tools you need to develop the next big thing.

The latest version of NAVsuite includes some key improvements to our GNSS-denied navigation capability including updates to our Indoor Positioning Solution (IPS) – Pozyx2GAD and GNSS-denied timing feature. Read on if you’d like to find out what they are.

+ Increased time synchronisation options – Released in NAVsuite 3.10, PTP & gPTP master/client functionality increased the time-synchronisation options on offer to OxTS GNSS/INS customers.

The new feature enables OxTS GNSS/INS users to choose the preferred source of time for their network meaning both added flexibility when it comes to architecting a new platform and the opportunity to take advantage of GNSS-denied timing and subsequently a new hotstart initialisation feature.

With the release of version 3.11 a user now has full control over when to begin GNSS-denied initialisation. This increased control ensures pre-misson drift is avoided.

+ New user configurable geofence feature – The new user configurable geofence capabilty gives OxTS Indoor Positioning System (IPS) users more control over their tests by empowering them with the ability to control the level of trust they assign to a specific aiding source during an indoor test.

This added usability ensures that the right position update is trusted at the right time, improving accuracy in a range of indoor to outdoor transition scenarios.

+ New NAVconfig language translations – To get the best out of an OxTS INS, its important to ensure the configuration is accurate and specific to your application. To make configuration easier, new language translations have been included. Further to those already included, the newly added translations are:

  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Polish
