On Track: In the Development of Highly Automated Driving Functions It Will Be Necessary to Verify a Massive Amount of Test Data Using GNSS/INS Solutions – But There Are Cost and Accuracy Challenges to Overcome

This article reviews some of the complicated testing equipment and capabilities that must develop in tandem with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automated vehicles. The authors focus on the need for a high-accuracy global navigation satellite system (GNSS) with real-time kinematic (RTK) functionality. They contend that the limitations of GNSS can be managed by coupling it with an inertial navigation system (INS) and describes real world uses of this technology combination. Highly automated vehicles will need a mix of camera, radar and lidar sensors to operate, and may incorporate additional information such as maps and traffic reports, for optimal functioning. The article concludes with a section pondering the accuracy levels required of both these systems and the methods used to test them. Cost considerations are also discussed.
