Live Tests Show Confidence in Driverless Car

An innovative positioning engine based on a safety-oriented paradigm uses a dual-frequency GNSS receiver, automotive cameras, accurate maps, low-cost inertial sensors and vehicle odometry. The real-time integrity layer bounds the error of each estimated value with a confidence level for safe navigation.

Inertial Breakthroughs Guide the Autonomous Vehicle

The complex and mission-critical needs of the autonomous vehicle market demand innovation at higher levels in several different sensors and in sensor integration. A new photonic chip technology offers promise in providing high-volume, low-cost manufacture of high-end, tactical-grade performance fiber-optic gyros (FOGs)for inertial navigation in GNSS-obstructed environments.

Experts Navigate Challenges to Driverless Driving in Free Webinar

Auto makers, ride-service providers and system integrators all anticipate the day—perhaps sooner than some think—when fully autonomous vehicles take the road. Many rigorous technical navigation challenges must be surmounted to reach that day: safety and reliability come first, before convenience and cost-savings can be realized. Innovative engineers who have solved these challenges share their lessons learned in a free webinar, Wednesday, October 2: “Inertial + SLAM: Creating the Roadmap for Autonomous Vehicles.”

CASSCA, PNT for Unmanned Systems Slated for Sept. 16-17

The Institute of Navigation’s Cognizant Autonomous Systems for Safety Critical Applications (CASSCA) Conference will feature well-recognized experts and leaders from government, industry and academia. Originally scheduled as part of  ION’s International Technical Meeting (ITM) and Precise Time and Time Interval (PTTI) Systems and Applications in late January, CASSCA was postponed at that time due to an extended impasse between U.S. Congressional leaders and the White House that had created a partial U.S. government shutdown.
