SBG Systems is exhibiting its Ellipse series, Ekinox Micro and Qinertia PPK software for mapping at ADAS & Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo California.
Laurent Le Thuaut, the company’s business development manager, said, “The new Ekinox Micro features PTP-based time synchronization over Ethernet. This provides a standard and efficient system for time synchronization in a multi-sensor framework for autonomous localization and navigation. Ekinox Micro integrates and replaces an essential component in this type of architecture, which is often a separate element: the PTP Master Clock. By eliminating this peripheral component, Ekinox Micro offers an economical advantage while maintaining the technical benefit for autonomous vehicle designers.
“Ekinox Micro tactical-grade IMU also helps minimize errors during challenging or denied GNSS conditions, maintaining safe navigation for several minutes after loss of a signal. Its built-in jamming and spoofing mitigation functions alert about any inconsistencies in the received signal.”
Laurent continued, “Last but not least, a choice of dedicated motion profiles (automotive, trucks, etc) permits optimized navigation performance in all ADAS/AV engineering and testing situations.
“In a nutshell, the Ellipse Series is well suited to ADAS, while Ekinox Micro’s extended capabilities make it more suitable for autonomous vehicles.”
