Centimeter-Level Accurate Positioning
For self-driving cars, machines, robots and drones to operate autonomously while keeping passengers—and other road users—safe, precise positioning is required. Navigation with accuracy of 3 – 15 meters, as found in typical GPS systems, does not meet autonomous requirements. Precise Positioning from Deutsche Telekom, and Silicon Valley based Swift Navigation, delivers cloud-based corrections that in turn deliver centimeter-level accuracy of up to ten centimeters. The solution is scalable for an unlimited number of autonomous vehicles and machines. Precise Positioning is already available nationwide throughout the United States and Germany, with extended European coverage scheduled to come in 2020.
Technical Requirements for Precise Positioning
- Dual band GNSS antenna
- Multi Frequency GNSS receiver
- Mobile network access to the Skylark Corrections Service
- Embedded control unit running Swift Starling software to calculate the exact position from satellite signals and correction data from the Cloud
