Septentrio has teamed up with Point One Navigation, a provider of precise location as a service, for autonomous vehicle demonstrations during the 2019 International Consumer Electronics Show, which will take place Jan. 8-11 in Las Vegas. During the conference, invitees will be able to ride in a fully autonomous demonstration vehicle that incorporates technology from both companies, as well as meet directly with technical experts, reports GIM International.

During the demonstration, Point One Navigation will showcase its proof-of-concept autonomous vehicle equipped with the the FusionEngine vehicle localization software. According to the company, demonstrations will utilize corrections from Point One’s Polaris Cloud, a new correction network that enables high-precision GPS and computer vision-based localization, while allowing the customer to choose the performance and price point that best fits their application.

According to GIM International, Point One’s solution is powered by Septentrio’s GNSS receivers. For accurate positioning of autonomous vehicles, Septentrio utilizes at least two frequencies broadcast by each GNSS constellation (BeiDou, Galileo, GLONASS, GPS, QZSS), the companies said.

For users operating in open sky scenarios, a Septentrio RTK receiver can be used directly with Polaris Cloud to provide centimeter-level accuracy.

Point One Navigation has chosen to work with Septentrio to power its solutions for both the correction network and our FusionEngine reference design because of the excellent quality, robustness and jamming resistance of their GNSS receiver technology, said Aaron Nathan, CEO and co-founder of Point One Navigation.
