0

Life Racing will be showcasing the GPS-AG50 at Professional MotorSport World Expo, the world’s first true 50Hz low-latency GPS module with combined six-axis motion pack designed for the professional motorsport industry.

GPS-AG50 uses advanced correction from SBAS (WAAS / EGNOS) to achieve high levels of position accuracy to within 2.5m and stores satellite information when powered off by means of a rechargeable lithium battery, allowing hot starts in under 3s.

The motion sensor pack consists of a three-axis accelerometer up to ±16G and a three-axis gyroscope up to ±1,000deg/s, with individual software programmable filtering levels. All GPS and motion sensor information is available on CAN with update rates of up to 1,000Hz.

The unit is enclosed in a compact light weight IP67 CNC machined case measuring 20x50x50mm with a single ASX Autosport connector and external aerial allowing GPS-AG50 to be AV mounted in space-limited locations.

Life Racing can be found on Stand 2026 at the 2015 Professional MotorSport World Expo, November 11-13.
