Why have you developed your own software GNSS receiver when there are good and cheap hardware receivers out there?
Powerful GPU-based compute platforms for ADAS and Autonomy (e.g. NVIDIA DRIVE) are available at suitable cost levels for mass market & series deployment end enable our solution to scalable and cost-effective replace a legacy hardware receiver with the latest functional safety oriented positioning algorithms. Unlike a black box solution, the software approach gives us full control over the entire signal processing chain, starting with the digitized antenna signal. This is the basic requirement for generating GNSS measurements with high integrity for functionally safe integration into the sensor fusion environment.
In contrast to an integrated circuit the software approach enables seamless interfacing to the sensor fusion environment. Our software can easily be tailored to specific use cases and allows deeply coupled sensor fusion. Since PATHFINDER is written in C++ according to strictly controlled coding standards, it runs on all ADAS platforms with GPU‘s and is compatible with the most common middlewares. Our software can be quickly upgraded to future signals and services (e.g. Galileo HAS or other modern GNNS argumentation services like SPACORDA).
