GMV Gains BMW Group Contract for GNSS Positioning System for Autonomous Vehicles
The Spanish multinational’s technology solution is going to be developed for the first time in BMW Group’s autonomous vehicles. This positioning software calculates the vehicle’s position and other magnitudes, using advanced GMV-developed algorithms, including components that have already been patented. These algorithms have been especially modified and adapted to meet BMW Group’s performance and safety requirements. The developed software will abide by the most demanding automotive standards and the highest quality levels of safety-critical software.
Another of the key components provided by GMV is a GNSS correction service to be run in a secure infrastructure using data from a global network of monitoring stations to be set up by GMV under this contract.
