Massachusetts-based Aceinna has announced that its INS401 INS (inertial navigation system) and GNSS/RTK (global navigation satellite system/real-time kinematic) solution for autonomous vehicle positioning is now available. The INS401 is part of a new product portfolio that is claimed to provide high-accuracy and high-integrity localization for developers and manufacturers of ADAS and autonomy solutions for autonomous vehicles of all types.
The INS401 is a high-performance inertial navigation system with an RTK-enabled dual frequency GNSS receiver, triple-redundant inertial sensors, and positioning engine. It is designed for use in L2+ and higher ADAS and other high-volume applications requiring precise position information. The company states that the INS401 provides centimeter-level accuracy, enhanced reliability and superior performance during GNSS outages. The dead reckoning solution delivers strong performance in GNSS challenged urban environments.
It has been specifically developed for automotive applications using automotive qualified components and is certified to ASIL-B level according to ISO26262. It is a compact and turnkey solution, secured within a rugged aluminum housing.
“Based on a decade long history in ADAS and safety applications, Aceinna is ready for today’s and future autonomous mobility applications,” said Wade Appelman, president and COO of the company. “The INS401 is our next step forward, delivering complex INS/RTK technology to mass markets with turnkey products. Highly accurate INS solutions like these usually run ten grand or more – we have sliced that to under US$500!”
