Rivian Sensor Leader Discusses Importance of Better Localization Sensors for Level 3

The latest safety award for Rivian is an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for the R1S as a Top Safety Pick+ for 2023. It accomplishes this and other safety advances with its Driver+ ADAS (advanced driving assistance system), which integrates a set of sensors along with driver attention, GNSS, and IMU modules. At AutoSens Detroit 2023, Abdullah Zaidi, Engineering Lead and Senior Manager at Rivian, presented his take on the state and near future of ADAS sensors including the benefits of adding lidar and the importance of better localization sensors for Level 3 systems.

Graphing a Way out of Multipath: Robust Navigation for Autonomous Vehicles and Robots

A factor-graph optimization-based GNSS positioning method uses GNSS pseudorange and Doppler observations to estimate position, velocity, and receiver clock biases. Added constraints on past and current graph nodes of the graph using time-difference observations of the GNSS carrier phase improve the accuracy, and a robust optimization method excludes multipath outliers. Experimental results reduce horizontal positioning error from 5 to 10 meters to 1.37 meters.

Multiple Imaging Radars Integrate with INS/GNSS via AUTO Software Reliable and Accurate Positioning for Autonomous Vehicles and Robots

Difficult GNSS environments and adverse weather conditions require a fusion of many sensors to maintain lane-level accuracy for autonomous platforms, without incurring high costs that would inhibit widespread adoption. Radars are an attractive option in a multi-sensor integration scheme due to being robust to adverse weather and insensitive to lighting variations.
