Destination: Dependable Localization

Industrial facilities often have complex layouts, from manufacturing plants to warehouses and distribution centers. Automated shuttles can navigate these environments with precision, optimizing material handling, and reducing congestion.

To ensure safe automation, shuttles must be able to localize with precise accuracy at every minute of the journey, no matter the terrain. In its broadest sense, vehicle localization is the process of locating a vehicle in a particular place or environment.

GPR equipped automated shuttle

Reliable Autonomous Navigation Anywhere

GPR’s WaveSense provides shuttles with the most reliable means of localizing relative to their operating domain.  

The system feeds detailed – centimeter-level — positioning data into a vehicle’s navigation system, enabling consistent autonomous driver-assist capabilities including lane-keeping and automated parking regardless of the surface conditions. This is especially important in complex environments where many shuttles operate, and where lane markings and GPS may be scarce. 

Subterranean radar images enable a whole new dimension of automated driving. By fusing subsurface positioning with above-ground cameras and LIDAR sensing information, self-driving shuttles now have a complete toolkit to ensure a safe ride at all times.
