Data Collecting Program for Mobile GNSS Field Data Set taking Place in Japan

Lighthouse Technology and Consulting Co., Ltd is proceeding with a program to collect precise GNSS data on major highways in Japan. The data is an inevitable “must use” tool for high precision positioning systems used in automated driving vehicles.

While the major part of autonomous driving systems consists of sensors and image recognition technologies, satellite positioning is also a key element used for complementing the precise current position.
