u-blox and GMV to develop end-to-end safe positioning solutions for ADAS

u-blox, a provider of positioning and wireless communication technology and services, and GMV, a supplier of safe positioning systems, have partnered to provide ready-to-use functional safe positioning solutions.

Functional safety is becoming increasingly important for automated or autonomous driving vehicles within the automotive and industrial sectors.

Currently, customers have to spend significant effort to develop and integrate hardware and software from several vendors for a functional safe positioning solution. GMV’s safety algorithms and augmentation service combined with u-blox’s positioning hardware and software will be integrated and made available in a ready-to-use solution.

The offering is designed to save efforts and accelerate time-to-market while enjoying the advantage of a cost-effective, proven functional safe positioning solution.

The ready-to-use functional safe positioning solution will be marketed by u-blox complementing its existing GNSS receiver portfolio and advanced GNSS augmentation service PointPerfect.

Further details will be announced in early 2023.
