High-Precision Positioning Available for Autos and Other Vehicles through Trimble GNSS Software

Designed for the Automotive Market, Trimble RTX Auto Enables Increased Autonomy through Precision Positioning

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 11, 2019 — (PRNewswire) —  Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today the availability of Trimble® RTX Auto, a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) software library, written specifically for use in safety critical automotive applications. The RTX Auto library can be integrated with any GNSS device and enables the decoding of Trimble's leading RTX correction stream for centimeter-level absolute positioning accuracy. RTX Auto works in parallel with other on-vehicle sensors to deliver a positioning solution that satisfies Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving requirements.

RTX Auto is both Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) and Automotive Software Process Improvement and Capability Determination (ASPICE) certified. These certifications validate that Trimble RTX Auto meets functional safety requirements for ADAS and autonomous applications in the auto industry.

"For over 35 years, Trimble has been at the forefront of positioning innovation, accelerating productivity for our users," said Patricia Boothe, vice president of Trimble's Advanced Positioning Division. "RTX Auto takes our technology leadership into functional safety applications and allows the automotive industry to leverage Trimble's leading RTX correction technology. Trimble RTX technology is helping to safely accelerate vehicle autonomy, transforming how the world drives."

While other correction service providers are validating their ADAS positioning products and services in test environments only, Trimble is on the road today providing RTX-based absolute positioning within General Motors' Super Cruise, the industry's first true hands-free driving system for the freeway.
