Hexagon’s Autonomy & Positioning division and Dayou are now offering GNSS correction services to the Chinese market, with product development testbeds in Beijing, Shanghai, Anqing and Shenzhen for OEMs in the automotive and micromobility industries. Companies can leverage these testbeds with consumer- and automotive-grade GNSS receivers to develop advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), smart products, safety-critical solutions, mobile applications and more.
The availability of GNSS testbeds is a vital step toward full production of the TerraStar-X Enterprise correction service in China. By working with either Dayou or Hexagon, companies can deploy the same high-precision positioning solutions in China, North America and Europe while gaining access to local sales, support and technical resources.
“Availability of the TerraStar-X enterprise testbeds in China builds a seamless positioning experience by leveraging Dayou’s local infrastructure,” said Dr Paul Verlaine Gakne, positioning services product manager in Hexagon’s Autonomy & Positioning division. The partnership between Dayou and Hexagon means that whether a Chinese company sells autonomous platforms overseas, or overseas companies sell their products in China, users will have a single, consistent, high-quality correction service that works in North America, Europe and China.
“Dayou has the necessary first-class innovative resources and expertise in navigation and positioning to integrate this PPP-RTK technology with any customer platform,” said Dayou’s president, Dr Han Jianxin. “We’re excited to see the results from the companies using this new technology to accelerate their autonomous driving programs both domestically and internationally.”
Hexagon and Dayou will offer access to testbeds in North America, Europe and China while building toward compatible, full-production TerraStar-X Enterprise services that enable integrated, lane-level positioning solutions in these regions for domestic and foreign automotive companies.
Similar testbed services are also available in North America and Europe.
