Precise Positioning is Accelerating Vehicle Autonomy


  • POSITIONING SERVICES

    Real-time, centimeter-level positions, providing true positioning mobility without the constraints of a local base station or base station network.

    • Single, global network
    • Sub-Lane level accuracy
    • (ASIL-B) ISO 26262 certified and ASPICE compliant
    • Pre and post broadcast integrity monitoring of data streams to assure quality and authenticity
    • Precise-positioning technology of choice for car manufacturers and suppliers.
    • Critical component of General Motors' Super Cruise system - the first hands-free driving assistance system for the highway - enabling over 5 million incident-free miles of hands-free driving on America's roadways.


    RTX AUTO SOFTWARE LIBRARY

    • A software library for use in safety-critical automotive applications. The RTX Auto library can be integrated with any GNSS device and enables the decoding of the market-leading RTX correction stream.
  • INERTIAL / DEAD RECKONING


    When occasional obstructions are present, such as a bridge, tunnel or deep urban or rural canyon, Trimble augments RTX precise positioning with inertial technology to maintain continuous positioning and orientation while on the road.

    • Inertial technology calculates the current position of a moving vehicle by using a previously determined position, or fix, and then incorporating estimations of speed, heading direction, and course over elapsed time.

Driving What's Possible

Trimble provides proven GNSS technology to automotive industry partners to achieve high accuracy absolute positioning for safety-critical applications. Trimble RTX provides safe, consistent and reliable high-accuracy corrections for sub-lane level accuracy in autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicle systems.
