Hexagon advances the integration of its positioning solutions
Hexagon AB, a global leader in digital reality solutions combining sensor, software and autonomous technologies, has announced a key partnership with ZF Group that will advance the integration of its software positioning engine and GNSS correction services into mass-production ADAS (advanced driver assistance system) and autonomous driving systems. Hexagon’s safety-certifiable software positioning engine and correction services will be integrated into ZF’s ProConnect connectivity platform, which enables full vehicle communication (vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-satellite and vehicle-to-network).
Like Hexagon, ZF, a German-based global technology company supplying systems for passenger cars, commercial vehicles and industrial technology, is focused on the next generation of mobility – from electric vehicles to fully autonomous systems. Hexagon’s correction services and software positioning engine leverage dual-frequency and multi-constellation GNSS signals along with tightly coupled inertial capabilities that accommodate vehicle dynamics in all driving conditions. Their integration is vital to providing the necessary functional safety, lane-level positioning accuracy and ASIL (automotive safety integrity level) rating that ZF’s automotive telematics platform requires. ASIL is a risk classification system defined by the ISO 26262 international standard for the functional safety of road vehicles.
