Trimble announced an alliance with autonomous vehicle research firm VSI Labs. Trimble will serve as the GNSS precise-positioning and orientation technology supplier for VSI’s autonomous research vehicle program. The alliance officially kicks off at Destination ACM, a long-distance driving event that leverages VSI’s research vehicle and continues with additional events throughout 2021.
The collaboration provides the opportunity to showcase Trimble RTX technology as the trusted precise-positioning correction source for car manufacturers and their suppliers. Coupled with Trimble’s inertial positioning, Trimble RTX plays a pivotal role in a vehicle’s ability to maintain accurate and reliable lane-discipline during autonomous driving.
Destination ACM launched from VSI’s Minneapolis headquarters en route to the American Center for Mobility’s (ACM) test center in southeast Michigan where a day of testing and demonstration will take place today. Automotive industry professionals and other invited guests will have the opportunity to experience the vehicle’s capabilities and performance first hand. .
