The development and use of autonomous vehicles are increasing worldwide.  Autonomous vehicles are enabled by a combination of different technologies and sensors that allow the vehicle itself to identify the optimal trajectory needed to perform the required work. Safety-critical applications leverage precise and secure positioning in situations where humans can come into harm or where systems or the environment could be damaged. Position accuracy and reliability is key and in most applications, GNSS provides that position information. In the agricultural industry, growers have been using GNSS for well over two decades to guide equipment through their fields — along with a host of other ag-related, site-specific applications. In this presentation we show how NovAtel is ready for the new challenges of providing position and velocity information with high continuity, integrity and availability to address the safety and certification requirements for autonomous navigation and guidance of agricultural vehicles.
