Skylark delivers seamless, precise positioning to autonomous vehicle, mobile and mass-market applications across continents via a cloud-based corrections service.
Skylark is a wide area, cloud-based GNSS corrections service that delivers real-time, high-precision positioning. Skylark uses cutting-edge positioning algorithms to provide a continuous stream of multi-constellation, multi-frequency GNSS corrections. This highly available service combines lane-level accuracy and world-class integrity at a continental scale. Skylark is hardware-agnostic, giving customers choice in today’s rapidly improving and affordable GNSS sensor ecosystem. OEMs are able to benefit from the lane-level positioning Skylark delivers using a host of third-party receivers and microprocessors.
Skylark packages the science of precise positioning as an affordable subscription service for ease in deployment for autonomous vehicle fleets. A Skylark 6-month license is included in the price of Swift’s hardware solutions in available geographies.
Skylark delivers seamless corrections to continents across the globe—currently available in:
United States | Europe | South Korea | Japan | Australia

4 cm accuracy delivers the performance autonomous vehicles require, enabling ADAS, V2X and Autonomous Driving use cases that require lane-level positioning.*
Skylark reduces initialization times to seconds, ensuring high-accuracy—and high-integrity—positioning is available when you need it.
Skylark is designed for large scale deployments in mass market applications. It supports state-of-the-art security and enterprise management features so you can integrate tightly with your existing infrastructure.
Skylark provides seamless coverage across continents. Skylark processes positioning observations in the cloud and eliminates dependencies on baseline length and negates concerns about base station switching.
Skylark is a scalable, secure and highly available cloud service delivering a continuous stream of real-time corrections. Skylark supports State Space Representation (SSR) formats for broadcast to millions of devices. NTRIP and RTCM are also supported for compatibility with existing equipment.
Skylark is designed for the most demanding safety-of-life critical applications. When used with Swift’s Starling positioning engine, Skylark is capable of delivering Protection Levels (PL) down to
1 m and Target Integrity Risk (TIR) down to 10-7 / hour. Skylark supports automotive functional safety standard ISO 26262 (ASIL B).
The Swift test team drove across the country—and back—to demonstrate the true nationwide lane-level GNSS correction coverage of the Skylark precise positioning service.
