Assured positioning, navigation and timing vital to enabling autonomy

HxGN LIVE Global’s Autonomy & Positioning Reality Summit will explore technologies enabling the future of autonomy. Building resilient and assured positioning, navigation and timing is critical for users looking to develop autonomous applications.

Applications worldwide are moving towards autonomy. From off-road autonomous tractors and rural transit systems to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), autonomous applications rely on Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) measurements for high-precision positioning. Without GNSS measurements providing an absolute location globally, the accuracy and safety of your autonomous application are no longer assured.

GNSS comes under threat from intentional and unintentional sources. Whether interference from nearby cell phone towers, frequencies generated from satellite antennas, or GPS jamming devices, satellite positioning interruptions can cause havoc on your navigation and timing systems.

But there are ways to build resiliency into your GNSS solution so your positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) measurements are assured.

Hexagon | NovAtel has developed hardware, software and firmware suites that enable assured PNT. These solutions include GPS Anti-Jamming Technology (GAJT) to protect against jamming activities, GNSS Resilience and Integrity Technology (GRIT) providing improved resiliency against interference and SPAN GNSS+INS technology leveraging inertial navigation systems (INS) to enhance positioning reliability.

To enable autonomy, users require a level of resiliency and protection against interference and jamming to ensure continuous operations and a supply of positioning data.

During HxGN LIVE Global’s Autonomy & Positioning Reality Summit, expert speakers will share how to put data to work enables autonomy. To obtain reliable, safe and resilient autonomy, users must understand assured PNT.

Explore the Autonomy & Positioning Reality Summit programme and learn how to enable the future of autonomy.
