Autonomous vehicles and robots are complex and costly to build. Developers need to integrate advanced hardware and software, do extensive testing and validation, maintain complex infrastructure, and calibrate diverse components and systems to ensure seamless compatibility.

Calian and Swift today introduced a solution: Calian’s fully integrated GNSS hardware working seamlessly with Swift’s Skylark Precise Positioning Service.

By combining the antenna, receiver, and positioning engine into a single enclosure, Calian significantly simplifies the GNSS part of the hardware architecture, allowing system integrators to focus on their core expertise and reducing development costs. Calian’s smart antennas are available in a ceramic patch design, based on its patented Tallysman Accutenna technology, ideal for stationary or vehicle-mounted applications, such as precise navigation, enhanced driver safety, and robotics. They also offer a helical form factor, perfect for portable and lightweight devices where size, weight, and durability are critical, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and wearables.

When paired with Skylark’s GNSS corrections, Calian’s Smart Antennas offer centimeter-level accuracy, uniform performance, and fast convergence. Skylark’s flexible and affordable subscription model eliminates the need for maintaining ground reference stations or the risk of using unreliable public ones, leveraging observations from its extensive network to model corrections for entire countries, delivered directly to receivers via the internet.

“Precise positioning is a critical component of cutting-edge products across industries,” said Holger Ippach, Vice President of Product & Marketing at Swift Navigation. “We are thrilled to partner with Calian to simplify the development process, making it easier than ever before for developers to bring innovative products to market.”
