Hydra System Logo

Hydra System is multi component solution, designed specifically for precise localisation of agricultural machines with work efficiency in mind.

Hydra System is composed of navigation module for agricultural machine (Hydra Box), specialised software (Hydra Nav) and optional base station module (Hydra Base).


Hydra System

Precision

Our modules (Hydra Box) provide precise localization using real time kinematic corrections. Corrections can be provided by base station module (Hydra Base) or by some third party provider. In open field 2-3 cm precision can be achieved.

Global range

By using base station (Hydra Base) module precision can be achieved in areas where there is no third party source of corrections.

Navigation

Precise location is combined with specialized software for easy to use navigation and guidance functions.

Expandable

Rover modules can be expanded with additional functionality for additional automation.

Rich connectivity options

Our base station and rover modules (Hydra Base and Hydra Box) provide wide variety of connectivity options.


WiFi that can be used to connect to Internet or to connect to mobile device like phone or tablet.


Bluetooth is alternative method for connecting mobile device.


Wired connections: Ethernet for base station and CANBUS for rover module.


Mobile network, so device can send and receive corrections almost everywhere.

Hydra Box

Rover module can be installed on almost any agricultural machine. It is computing precise location by using global navigation satellite system and corrections provided by base station module or by some third party corrections source. Corrections are provided by 3G module.

Phone or tablet with proper software (Hydra Nav) is than connected to rover module (using Bluetooth or WiFi). After that precise location data can be used.

There is also DGPS varian available.
Hydra Box is also part of few sets.

Specification:

Parameter Value
Connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G, CAN (optional RS232, RS485 or Ethernet)
GNSS: GPS, QZSS, GLONASS
Power supply: 8-57VDC
Mount options: 1/4-20 UNC thread

Precision

In order to increase precision our system uses real time kinematic corrections.

This is differential GNSS technique that provides high positioning precision (up to 2-3cm) near base station (up to 10-20km).

Base station picture
Hydra Box

Base station, in most cases mounted on some permanent fixture, serves as source for real time kinematics corrections.

This can be used instead of buying corrections from third party, when those are either unavailable due to localization or too expensive.

Solid, protected from environment

Both rover and base station modules (Hydra Box and Hydra Base) are designed to withstand harsh environment conditions.


Extended temperature range (from -40 to 85 degrees).


Water and dust resistant, up to IP66.


Vibration resistant, for agriculture and industrial vehicle operations.

Hydra nav software
Hydra Nav

Software for navigation designed to be used on smart-phones and tablets and cooperating with precision localisation module (Hydra Box).

Can help optimise agricultural works, generates reports from tasks execution. Can navigate machines on various types of routes and all parameters are configurable.
