This PiCAN FD board with ublox NEO-M8P GPS/GNSS receiver. The NEO-M8P module combines the high performance u-blox M8 positioning engine with u-blox’s Real Time Kinematic (RTK) technology. The NEO-M8P provides cm-level GNSS performance designed to meet the needs of unmanned vehicles and other machine control applications requiring high precision guidance.
u-blox’s RTK technology introduces the concept of a “rover” (NEO-M8P-0) and a “base” (NEO-M8P-2) on the M8 platform for stunning cm-level accuracy in clear sky environments. The base station module sends corrections via the RTCM proto- col to the rover module via a communication link enabling the rover to output its position relative to the base station down to centimeter-level precision.
The NEO-M8P is ideal for applications that require vehicles to move faster and more accurately, operate more efficiently, and automatically return to base station platforms. Such ap- plications include UAV, unmanned vehicles (e.g. robotic lawn mowers), and Precision Agriculture guidance.
Antenna connection is via a SMA connector.

Classic CAN and CAN FD is provided by the Microchip MCP2518FD IC. 

Easy to install SocketCAN driver. Programming can be done in C or Python.
