API

Application Programming Interface (API) for NovAtel GNSS Receivers

API is a set of predefined functions for developing custom software to execute from and interface with the GNSS receiver platform. The next generation API from NovAtel features a simple scripting language to easily create scripts to perform specialized operations that run onboard the receiver. The seamless customization of output formats and the ability to write custom algorithms without an additional processor gives users control of their data. The increased functionality of the API eliminates system hardware, simplifies system design, reduces development time and decreases time to market. The next generation API is only available on the OEM7® family of receivers.
