Swift Navigation Partners with Arm to Bring Precise Positioning
Swift Navigation Partners with Arm to Bring Precise Positioning Technology to Autonomous Vehicle Compute Platforms
SAN FRANCISCO and FRANKFURT, Germany, Sept. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Swift Navigation, a San Francisco-based tech firm redefining Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) positioning technology for autonomous vehicles, today announced a partnership with Arm®, a global leader in semiconductor IP. The partnership means Arm will offer Swift Navigation’s high-integrity, high-accuracy GNSS positioning solutions as an option on Arm-based platforms to developers of autonomous and connected vehicles.
Standard GNSS positioning is three to five meters in depth which is not suitable for safety-critical systems requiring lane-level accuracy. For higher levels of autonomous capability, a vehicle needs to be able to determine its absolute location. To achieve this, high-precision localization is needed to get to accuracy down to the centimeter. Swift’s partnership with Arm will deliver a high-integrity, high-accuracy GNSS positioning solution for silicon makers and Tier 1 and 2 auto suppliers to integrate precise positioning into the sensor suite. Swift Navigation’s Starling® is a GNSS positioning engine designed for just such automotive and autonomous vehicle applications. Starling’s software enhances the measurements for commercially available GNSS receivers to provide true precision and integrity capabilities. Starling is receiver-agnostic, so it is ideal for Arm customers as it works with a variety of automotive...
