Autonomous or not, Helicore Antennas provide reliable, precision performance that outperforms ceramic elements in every aspect
The driverless car: a culmination of over a decade of research and development that aims to disrupt the automotive and transportation industries. While there is a lot of excitement and buzz about the industry, there is still a lot of research to be done before autonomous (driverless) vehicles become a standard on the streets.
Helicore for Autonomous Vehicles
As the smart car grows toward its autonomous evolution, we continually find that even with new connectivity devices and services, GNSS remains the best solution for automotive systems for absolute positioning and timing. Within the autonomous vehicle design, absolute positioning and timing is integral and requires precision to keep automated vehicle systems reliably where they need to be: safely in the lane, connected, and on the road. Helicore GNSS antennas do it best, and they do it with style.
How Maxtena can help
Maxtena is working directly with leaders in the autonomous vehicle industry to develop advanced antenna solutions for multiple applications within the autonomous vehicle. First and foremost, our Helicore line of antennas continues to provide superior location data and multipath rejection, as it always has. You can read more about Helicore below.
Our engineers provided an innovative solution to this problem by integrating our antenna technology directly into the smart cars. This solution provided the decimeter accuracy necessary to identify the car's precise location within narrow city streets of urban canyons and lead to higher end customer satisfaction and cost savings overall.
Extreme Phase Center Stability
Helicore antennas lead the industry with their extreme phase center stability. What does that mean? It means that our antennas are receiver agnostic: they work with any kind of receiver to produce quality data. Whichever receiver you use, Helicore just works.
The comparative data shows that the Helicore antenna in this vehicle test has minimum phase center variation. It is much more stable than the currently integrated antenna.
