Calling all automotive engineers — and anyone involved in designing or promulgating the fast-oncoming world of autonomous driving.
For driverless vehicles, current GNSS meter-level positioning accuracy still serves for lane-level detection. But hazardous misleading information poses a serious, disruptive and critical safety concern.By Inside GNSS
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.By Inside GNSS
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.By Inside GNSS
This year’s Intelligent Transport Systems & Services (ITS) conference will be held in Denmark in September. ITS World Congress will take place from September 17-21 at the Bella Center in Copenhagen. The Congress Theme: “ITS – Quality of Life”, supports the Copenhagen belief that intelligent transport systems are an important means to enhance people’s daily lives through seamless, smart and sustainable mobility solutions.By Inside GNSS
The Technology Roadshow continued its steady roll around North America building on Topcon’s Intersection of Infrastructure and Technology message. Along the 28-city tour, the traveling trailer stopped for several days in beautiful Pleasanton, California, just down the road from Topcon Positioning Systems’ headquarters in Livermore.
From the start, this four-day event, hosted by RDO Integrated Controls, Engineering Supply, Papé Machinery and 5D Solutions, provided attendees with a little extra insight into the potential of technology-enabled construction in infrastructure.By Inside GNSS

There are many good reasons for getting excited about highly automated vehicles, or HAVs, which is the acronym used by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). HAVs can make driving more fuel- and time-efficient. They can significantly reduce traffic congestion and emissions by driving a precise speed, minimizing lane changes, and maintaining an exact distance to neighboring cars. They can also increase accessibility and mobility for disabled and elderly persons.By Inside GNSS
