- ST's new Teseo receiver combines multiple-frequency (L1, L2, and L5) and multi-constellation tracking to correct positioning error for high-precision navigation
- First-in-class device features built-in integrity checking for use in safety-critical systems (ISO 26262 ASIL)
- Enables autonomous-driving systems to combine precise positioning with sensor data for enhanced system performance, safety, reliability
Launched alongside Teseo APP, ST's Teseo V chip provides equivalent multi-frequency precise positioning in a simplified device for non-safety-critical applications where integrity assurance is not required."High-accuracy satellite positioning makes autonomous driving safer, smoother, and more reliable," said Antonio Radaelli, Director, Infotainment Business Unit, STMicroelectronics. "Our newest Teseo APP GNSS chip combines extreme accuracy and precision with industry-unique integrity assurance for use in safety-critical applications." ST is now supplying product samples to lead customers who are developing autonomous-driving systems expected to appear first in high-end vehicles launched in 2020/2021. Visitors to Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, February 26 to March 1, can see Teseo APP at the ST booth, Hall 7, Stand 7A61. Notes for Editors: Conventional GNSS-based automotive positioning and navigation systems use only single-frequency GNSS receivers that operate in the L1 frequency bands available for consumer use, and are subject to environmentally-related errors such as multipath and ionospheric phase delays that impair positional accuracy. Teseo APP eliminates these errors by tracking all available GNSS signals in multiple frequency bands, such as the GPS and GLONASS, Galielo, BeiDou, QZSS, and IRNSS L1, L2, and L5 frequency bands, and the Galileo E6 signal that contains Precise Point Positioning (PPP) correction data to allow worldwide decimeter-level accuracy. Until now, GNSS signals containing precise-positioning information have been reserved for commercial and government organizations. Other techniques for enhancing accuracy have included expensive differential systems reliant on a combination of ground base-station signals as well as satellite signals, or techniques such as Real-Time Kinematics, which generally require a denser reference station network. The new Teseo chips make high accuracy affordable for autonomous driving through an ingenious combination of tracking up to three constellations simultaneously over two frequency domains. These multi-frequency combinations bring reliable GNSS ionospheric and multipath modeling in most environments, thus allowing accurate positioning with faster convergence time for automotive applications, where timing is critical.
