Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are bridging the gap to full autonomy and have a major role to play in improving safety and efficiency on our roads.

Until now, the complexities of urban environments have presented a significant challenge to reliable, accurate and safe GNSS positioning, limiting the expansion of these capabilities into cities, whilst impeding the pace of innovation.

As a next generation GNSS technology, S-GNSS solves these problems, easing the burden on other vehicle sensors, to the integrity of system performance.

Providing up to 10x better accuracy for ADAS, S-GNSS delivers the absolute positioning solution, unlocking new capabilities and driver benefits.

Supporting accurate positioning for autonomous cars and driver assistance platforms, S-GNSS has the potential to:

  • Provide lane-level positioning accuracies in more challenging environments than currently possible

  • Transform the insurance industry

  • Reduce congestion and help make roads safer

  • Help facilitate a reduction in human error

  • Transport goods faster and more efficiently

  • Be resilient to spoofing attacks, enabling safe & secure GPS navigation

Improving accuracy and safety of in-car navigation systems

S-GNSS makes navigation and positioning more accurate, especially in dense urban environments. Real-world testing has improved GNSS measurements by up to 10 times, enabling lane-level positioning. This improvement to GNSS means we are one step closer to achieving full autonomy - traditionally, such improvements could only be achieved by adding unrealistically large and expensive antenna arrays.

Critically, S-GNSS provides high resilience against cyber attacks and spoofing, caused by the ability to trick or falsify your location from potential signal interruption. Thanks to S-GNSS, drivers can have total confidence they will be able to arrive safely and securely at their destination.

Working in collaboration with General Motors

We’re pleased to be working in conjunction with General Motors to explore bringing this next generation GPS technologies to the automotive industry and ongoing growth and capability of their ADAS and AV systems.
