Swift Navigation has demonstrated its Starling positioning engine with automotive-grade chips from STMicroelectronics’ Teseo platform.

The Starling modular and portable GNSS high-precision positioning engine leverages Swift’s Skylark Cloud Corrections Service. An advanced GNSS processing engine, Starling enhances measurements from commercially available GNSS receivers to provide true precision and integrity capabilities, the company said.

Starling is GNSS-receiver agnostic and works with a variety of automotive grade GNSS chipsets and inertial sensors, offering automotive companies choices in selecting the best components for their autonomous sensor suite, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) applications and automated driving systems.

In a test drive in California, Swift showcased the integration of Starling onto ST’s Telemaco3P MPU-based modular telematics platform with on-board TeseoAPP, confirming the accuracy of the combined solution as a compelling offering for safety-critical autonomous-vehicle positioning when ST makes production TeseoAPP chipsets available in 2019.

Another test in California demonstrated the synergistic benefits of integrating Starling with Broadcom’s BCM47755 chip, including centimeter-level positioning and low system-level power consumption.
