Applanix Introduces its Autonomy Development Platform for Accelerating Research, Development, and Production of Autonomous Vehicles

RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO, JANUARY 23, 2018 — Applanix, a Trimble Company and leader in positioning and orientation technology, introduced today its Autonomy Development Platform to provide automakers, truck makers, and Tier 1 vehicle suppliers the hardware, software, engineering, and integration services they need to accelerate their development programs for on-road and off-road autonomous vehicles.

By combining customized integration and engineering services along with Applanix’ proven GNSS-inertial positioning technologies, the Autonomy Development Platform advances driverless vehicle development projects at every stage of development and commercialization. 

“With the introduction of our Autonomy Development Platform, Applanix now offers on-road and off-road vehicle manufacturers the tools and engineering expertise necessary to support and augment their driverless vehicle development programs,” said Louis Nastro, Director of Land Products at Applanix. “The platform delivers a navigation solution that is fully customizable and includes integration and engineering services, field-tested hardware and proprietary software for highly accurate positioning.  The navigation solution is capable of working with all sensors, including multiple cameras, LiDAR, radar and ultrasonic sensors, and with all vehicle types at all stages in the development and commercialization cycle. The Applanix technology enables highly accurate assessments of the full 360-degree environment around a vehicle to produce a robust representation, including static and dynamic objects, critical for successful vehicle autonomy.”

“Applanix has been committed to meeting the needs of autonomous vehicle manufacturers for more than a decade, going back to our success at the DARPA Challenges.  In addition, our expertise in autonomous technologies is part of an extensive portfolio of Trimble solutions for automation and vehicle autonomy, which began more than three decades ago,” said Steve Woolven, President of Applanix. “Our refined positioning algorithms and expertise with sensor fusion and mobile robotic technologies enable us to provide a development platform that delivers the required performance and reliability for manufacturers to develop and produce self-driving vehicles for all environments and tasks.”

The Applanix Autonomy Development Platform is available now through the Applanix worldwide sales channel.  Go to our autonomy product page for more information.
