Point One Navigation has announced its FusionEngine software, a complete, high-performance ASIL-rated precise location solution for automotive applications is now compatible with the TeseoAPP (Teseo ASIL Precise Positioning) GNSS chipset from ST. The combined offering enables ASIL-B functional safety, a critical requirement for Level 3+ ADAS systems.

FusionEngine is a trusted, tightly coupled positioning software built on proprietary self-calibrating sensor-fusion algorithms. Fusion Engine can be easily integrated into a variety of host processors that are used for enabling Level 3+ ADAS and autonomous driving systems.

FusionEngine combines data from multiple sensors, including the ST TeseoAPP multi-band GNSS receiver, to assure the high accuracy, safety, and integrity required for higher levels of autonomous vehicles.

The combination of the TeseoAPP receiver and the STA5365S external RF front-end provides dual-band precise raw measurement data for all visible GNSS satellites to the main host processor, where FusionEngine is integrated. The TeseoAPP receiver and chipset are compliant with ST’s Automotive Grade qualification. This includes AEC-Q100 and ISO 26262.

FusionEngine enables developers to complete the Functional Safety Concept Phase for their host system software integration. This includes the definition of Safety Goals, Functional Safety Requirements (FSR) and Technical Safety Requirements (TSR) as well as the test methods to provide evidence of successful integration. These test methods are then fully executed and audited to achieve the assigned ASIL rating.

“Building on the foundation of the ST TeseoAPP, we are enhancing safety in production automotive applications,” said Aaron Nathan, CEO at Point One Navigation. “Our customers can now achieve ASIL B safety for today’s most advanced vehicle applications.”

“Point One Navigation’s integration of FusionEngine with the ST TeseoAPP provides OEMs in automotive and other markets with a state-of-the-art safety, integrity, and security-oriented localization solution,” said Marco Pesce, Americas VP Marketing and Applications, Automotive Discrete Group, STMicroelectronics.
