Trimble and General Motors Mark Historic Milestone: More Than 34 Million Hands-Free Miles on the Road
Trimble Autonomy and
Trimble's precise GPS technology enables a vehicle to maintain its lane position in a variety of environments, including inclement weather conditions, including rain, snow, fog and more, which often challenges other sensors.
"Trimble RTX has been in commercial use for more than 10 years and in 2018 was the first precise point positioning correction service to log miles in a commercial autonomous driving system. It works with Super Cruise to help a vehicle maintain its lane position, bringing more consumers access to a more enjoyable and convenient driving experience," said
Standard GPS signals can have a margin of error up to 25 feet, which is not suitable for vehicles that require precise absolute position information to maintain lane-level positioning. Trimble's RTX technology removes errors in GNSS satellite data broadcasts to improve location accuracy on our roadways.
"Super Cruise is a life-changing technology, allowing customers to experience hands-free driving on compatible, mapped roads nationwide. The technology is a collaborative effort internally and externally to bring this advanced driver assistance technology to life," said
*Always pay attention while driving and when using Super Cruise. Do not use a hand-held device. Requires active Super Cruise plan or trial. Terms apply. Visit cadillac.com/supercruise for compatible roads and full details.
