Swift Navigation, a San Francisco-based company that is redefining GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) and precise positioning technology for autonomous vehicles, automotive, mobile and mass-market applications, announced its support of the new STMicroelectronics Teseo V. The Teseo V family is a single-chip GNSS triple-frequency device for automotive applications. Swift’s team has been working with ST to ensure the optimization of Swift’s precise positioning solution—comprised of the Starling® positioning engine and Skylark™ precise positioning service—when paired with the STA8135GA Teseo V, the first single-chip triple-band GNSS IC (Integrated Circuit).
The triple-frequency capabilities of STA8135GA provide high-quality, robust GNSS data required for high-accuracy across automotive, mass-market, and mobile applications. When paired with corrections from Swift’s precise positioning service Skylark, applications can achieve centimeter-level accuracy. The Starling positioning engine combines GNSS measurements with data from inertial measurement units (IMUs) and vehicle sensor data, further improving the integrity of safety-critical applications.
Since Starling launched in 2018, Swift and ST have worked together to provide a pre-validated combination of hardware and software for customers so that they can benefit from a low-risk, well-tested solution from two market leaders. In collaboration, Swift and ST have innovated and developed products to enhance positioning performance for automotive applications.
Holger Ippach, Executive Vice President of Product of Swift, said that Swift values its collaboration with STMicroelectronics and is excited to demonstrate the proven success of the Teseo V paired with Swift’s precise positioning solution. Their work together delivers the accuracy and reliability required by advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous platforms.
“The Teseo V triple-frequency chip in combination with the Swift precise positioning technology assures the most accurate and easy-to-use GNSS receiver chip available,” said Luca Celant, VP and General Manager, Automotive ADAS, ASIC and Audio Division, STMicroelectronics. “Paired with the Swift precise positioning solution, Teseo V moves the industry further down the road toward Autonomous vehicles.”
