Swift Navigation and Carnegie Robotics co-develop high-precision GNSS for autonomous vehicles

Swift Navigation and Carnegie Robotics are teaming up for a line of navigation products for autonomous vehicles.

Swift Navigation solutions utilize real-time kinematics (RTK) technology, providing location solutions that are  more accurate than traditional GPS, at a fraction of the cost. Swift recently shipped its newest product, Piksi™ Multi, a multi-band, multi-constellation high-precision GNSS receiver, perfectly apt for autonomous vehicles. The robotics market, through this partnership with Carnegie Robotics, stands to benefit from Piksi Multi’s improved localization and control.

Carnegie Robotics has been supplying rugged, reliable robotic systems for getting work done in the real world. The team at Carnegie Robotics (CRL) has state-of-the-art technologies from early design into commercial use in precision agriculture, machine control, autonomous vehicles, as well as industrial and military robots. This process requires both a deep knowledge of robotics and best-in-class engineering, but it cannot succeed without also addressing the business case, the needs of the end-user, reliability, maintenance, safety, certifications and the dozens of other essential factors necessary for a product to succeed in the real world.
