Septentrio GPS/GNSS technology will be one of the components in the Smart Highway system that was launched this week with a live demonstration in Antwerp, Belgium. A section of a highway will be dedicated as a test environment for technology that prepares Belgium for automated driving and truck platooning.
Roadside units along the highway will feature GNSS receivers acting as reference stations, sending out continuous positioning corrections. Onboard GNSS units will use these corrections together with built-in quality indicators to calculate trustworthy, sub-decimeter positioning. They will also provide timing for syncing the multitude of sensors onboard the vehicles.
