Point One Navigation, a leader in precise positioning technology, today announced its FusionEngine software, a complete, high-performance ASIL-rated precise location solution for Automotive applications is now compatible with ST’s TeseoAPP (Teseo ASIL Precise Positioning ) GNSS Chipset. The integrated solution guarantees ASIL-B functional safety, a critical requirement for Level 3+ ADAS systems.
Point One’s FusionEngine is a reliable, tightly integrated positioning solution built on the Company’s proprietary self-calibrating sensor-fusion algorithm. The Fusion Engine can be easily integrated with various host processors used for enabling Level 3+ ADAS and autonomous driving systems.
FusionEngine integrates data from multiple sensors, including ST’s TeseoAPP multi-band GNSS receiver, to ensure the high accuracy, safety, and integrity required for higher levels of autonomous vehicles.
The combination of ST’s TeseoAPP receiver and the STA5365S external RF front-end provides dual-band precise raw measurement data for all visible GNSS satellites to the main host processor, where Point One’s FusionEngine is integrated. The TeseoAPP receiver and chipset conforms to ST’s Automotive Grade qualification. This includes AEC-Q100 and ISO 26262.
Point One’s FusionEngine allows developers to complete the Functional Safety Concept Phase for their host system software integration. This includes the definition of Safety Goals, Functional Safety Requirements (FSR) and Technical Safety Requirements (TSR) as well as test procedures to provide evidence of successful integration. These test procedures are fully implemented and audited to achieve the assigned ASIL rating.
“Building on ST’s TeseoAPP foundation, we are improving safety in production automotive applications,” said Aaron Nathan, CEO of Point One Navigation. “We use ST’s expertise in automotive grade qualification to bring to market a complete solution that offers high performance and reliability. Our customers can now achieve ASIL B safety for the most advanced automotive applications today.
“The integration of FusionEngine’s Point One Navigation with ST’s TeseoAPP provides OEMs in the automotive and other markets with a state-of-the-art safety, integrity, and security-based localization solution,” said Marco Pesce, Americas VP Marketing and Applications, Automotive Discrete Group, STMicroelectronics.
