Hexagon partners with ZF Group on autonomous driving systems

December 23, 2022  - By


On Dec. 20, Hexagon announced a partnership to integrate its software positioning engine and correction services with ZF Group’s ProConnect connectivity platform. This will enable vehicle communication in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving systems.

This integration is critical to providing the necessary functional safety, lane-level positioning accuracy and automotive safety integrity level (ASIL) rating that ZF’s automotive telematics platform requires. Hexagon’s TerraStar-X precise point positioning correction service will greatly improve the accuracy and reliability of ADAS and autonomous driving systems.

Hexagons’ dual frequency and multi-constellation GNSS receivers are tightly coupled with inertial capabilities that withstand vehicle dynamics in all driving conditions.

Both companies are focused on the next generation of mobility, including electric vehicles and autonomous systems, and this partnership helps advance safety and automation in the automotive and transportation industry. Hexagon and ZF plan to demonstrate their ADAS at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January 2023.
