NovAtel® technology will be on display at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) January 9th to January 12th, 2018 in Las Vegas with Renesas Electronics Corporation (Renesas). Renesas will use NovAtel’s high-performance SPAN® tightly coupled Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and Inertial Navigation System (INS) technologies with GNSS correction services for live autonomous vehicles and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) demonstrations throughout CES. SPAN GNSS+INS products provide position, orientation and time solutions that are critical for autonomous applications.
NovAtel’s assured positioning technology not only delivers solutions based on signals from satellite constellations but also uses vehicle behavior modelling, inertial sensor integration and GNSS correction signals to improve accuracy and significantly reduce interruptions in availability. Renesas relies on NovAtel products to provide high integrity and accurate positioning for autonomous driving, ADAS, connected car feature demonstrations and automotive solutions that will be showcased at CES 2018.
With the commitment to ensure autonomous vehicles have assured positioning solution, a dedicated team of highly skilled engineers formed the Safety Critical Systems Group at NovAtel to meet the exceptional performance and safety requirements of autonomous vehicles at the necessary production volumes and price point required. Since its formation, the group has made many positive partnerships in the automotive industry. NovAtel and Renesas are currently collaborating on implementing NovAtel’s high-performance GNSS+INS positioning solution with the Renesas R-Car H3 system-on-chip (SoC). The R-Car H3 is compliant with the ISO 26262 functional safety standard for automotive applications, which aligns with NovAtel’s automotive strategy.
NovAtel has a long history providing industry leading high precision GNSS solutions that are high quality and reliable. As an ISO 9001 certified company, NovAtel is also developing an extensive product line of receivers, antennas, correction signals, positioning algorithms, sensor fusion solutions and systems that fulfill specific safety requirements of the automotive industry such as ISO 26262.
