Trimble and Qualcomm Link to Produce High-Accuracy Positioning Solutions for Connected Vehicles

October 4, 2019 Alix Paultre

Trimble and Qualcomm Technologies plan to work together to produce precise-positioning solutions for select automotive applications, integrating Trimble’s RTX technology with select Qualcomm Snapdragon Automotive 4G and 5G platforms. Snapdragon 4G and 5G Automotive platforms feature integrated multi-frequency and multi-constellation high-precision GNSS technology.

The Snapdragon 4G and 5G platforms also support all major global and regional GNSS satellite constellations such as GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, and QZSS, operating concurrently on the L1, L2, and L5 frequency bands, including a Precise Positioning Framework. Tight integration of GNSS functionality in conjunction with the modem reception of the corrections allows for minimum latencies and optimal performance of the precise-positioning solution from the telematics system.

Trimble RTX technology provides real-time, multi-constellation GNSS corrections and positioning capable of achieving 2-centimeter horizontal accuracy worldwide. An RTX-enabled Snapdragon evaluation kit (EVK) is expected to be available by early 2020.
