Last-mile Delivery

Swift Navigation offers a highly-accurate, highly-reliable GNSS positioning solution that is ideal for last-mile deliveries. The Starling positioning engine enhances the measurements of commercially available GNSS receivers and when paired with the nationwide Skylark cloud corrections service, fleet managers can optimize delivery routes, minimize fuel and operational costs and crowd-source information to reduce delays. Accurate localization makes it possible to track drivers along their assigned routes in real time.

  • Improve tracking for optimal operational fleet efficiency
  • Reduce costs with real-time delivery localization information
  • Inertial sensor support for accuracy in GNSS-denied areas like urban canyons

Positive Train Control

Swift Navigation makes it possible to achieve track determination and precise car location with Positive Train Control (PTC) using the ruggedized, dual-frequency Duro Inertial RTK GNSS receiver with an inertial measurement unit (IMU) that allows for continuous centimeter-accurate positioning in the harshest of environments. Skylark cloud corrections service provides an alternative to traditional balises with real-time localization without long convergence times over an area that spans a nation.

  • Skylark supports fleet positioning and railway operations
  • High-precision receivers are ideal for implementing PTC
  • Inertial technology combined with GNSS delivers robust positioning

Global Constellation Support

  • The American constellation (GPS L1/L2) consists of 24 satellites
  • The Russian constellation (GLONASS G1/G2) consists of 24 satellites
  • The Chinese constellation (BeiDou B1/B2) which—once completed—will contain 37 satellites
  • The European Union-based constellation (Galileo E1/E5b), will eventually consist of 30 satellites

Swift Navigation’s GNSS receivers are multi-band and multi-constellation and support GPS L1/L2, GLONASS G1/G2, BeiDou B1/B2, Galileo E1/E5b for RTK measurements and positioning and SBAS for robust sub-meter positioning in non-RTK mode. The support of multiple constellations creates more robust positioning performance in a variety of challenging skyview environments.

Nationwide Cloud Corrections

  • Continuous corrections delivered across the contiguous United States
  • Fast convergence times to ensure positioning is available when needed
  • Localization accuracy and performance that autonomous vehicles require

Swift Navigation’s Skylark is a wide area, cloud-based GNSS corrections service that delivers real-time, high-precision positioning to autonomous vehicles. Built from the ground-up for autonomy at scale, Skylark enables lane-level positioning, fast convergence times and high integrity and availability required by mass market automotive and autonomous applications. Skylark is hardware-independent, allowing customers to choose their GNSS sensor ecosystem. It delivers a continuous stream of multi-constellation, multi-frequency GNSS corrections for a highly-available service that combines lane-level accuracy and world-class integrity at a continental scale.

Receiver-Agnostic Positioning Engine

  • Provides flexibility for manufacturers by being receiver-agnostic
  • Designed for portability running on leading automotive processors and operating systems
  • Engineered to comply with ISO 26262 for ASIL-B safety standards

Starling is an advanced, high-precision positioning engine that works with a variety of automotive-grade GNSS chipsets and inertial sensors making it ideal for autonomous applications. Starling’s software is platform-independent and enhances the measurements for commercially available GNSS receivers to provide centimeter-accurate results with high integrity. Starling supports the calculation of precise position, velocity and time (PVT) and when combined with inertial sensor measurements, wheel odometry and other sensor inputs, Starling can assist with vehicle localization, decision and control.
