The DealComp MOCCULA-RTK is a powerful stand-alone high accuracy RTK enhanced GNSS location device targeting primarily in-vehicle applications. The navigation subsystem leverages the latest technologies in sensor-based and sensor assisted GNSS location. Handover between navigation technologies is seamless and transparent. The Moccula is easy to install due to its compact size 129 x 104 x 40mm. In addition to accurate location information, it enables very fast communication, thanks to the built-in LTE CAT4-modem. You can now upgrade your existing solution with one installation. You get a very accurate location and fast data connection in one package.

The navigation engine uses integrated high-sensitivity RTK sensors supported by vehicle speed and vehicle direction data. To support legacy vehicles where CAN data access is not available, The MOCCULA-RTK can connect to 0-24VDC nominal wheel-tick and direction signals. When used in vehicles with CAN bus, the MOCCULA-RTK can extract speed and direction data from the OBD II or J1939 FMS CAN-port. The CAN system provides the highest accuracy with 10ms speed updating rate.

MOCCULA-RTK is based on a YOCTO Linux quad core ARM CORTEX A7 processor which is supported by a dedicated system management microcontroller. Local Flash storage is used for application software as well as buffering. An additional uSD card can be used for local data logging of vehicle parameters. External interfaces include Fast Ethernet,
RS-485 and Dual CAN bus ports. Four 0-24VDC range digital inputs can be used for general purpose I/O, dedicated inputs are available for emergency pushbutton and ignition key sensing. The emergency pushbutton input can connect to normally-closed chained emergency plungers for passengers and the driver. The MOCCULA-RTK can be customized to support different actions based on emergency pushbutton activation.

The MOCCULA-RTK is a fully fledged gateway router with the ability to extract vehicle health data from the vehicle CAN-bus. Modern bus systems are being incrementally upgraded to ITxPT across various stages of upgrade programs. The MOCCULA-RTK can act as an ITxPT compliant GNSS-to-IP subsystem providing location service to other data-users on the vehicle.

The design of the power supply has extensive input filtering exceeding the requirements of E-certification asd well as EN50155. The input contains an active protection circuit and multi-stage filter to ensure lowest emissions and best immunity. The input is reverse protected up to 100V and will withstand indefinite overvoltage up to 100VDC. The operating temperature range is -20 to 70C.

MOCCULA-RTK is an open platform, which is programmable and upgradeable to support different project requirements and back-end data API’s. Please contact DealComp for details on such support and services.
