Septentrio is providing mosaic™, a true multi-frequency, multi-constellation GNSS receiver module, delivering field-proven, accurate and reliable global localization even in harsh environments. V2X development boards from NXP will integrate the compact mosaic™ GNSS receiver module to enable customers to develop advanced V2X services.

“Reliable lane-accurate positioning is vital for many road-safety applications of V2X, such as queue and emergency stop warnings or blind spot warning,” says Andrew Turley, Senior Director of Innovation and V2X Business Development. “Integration of mosaic™ into our reference design gives our customers a direct solution for developing these and other advanced V2X services.”

V2X technology enables cars to communicate with infrastructure as well as other vehicles, making driving safer and more efficient. It enables cars to “see” what’s around the corner or through the dense urban environment warning the driver about road works, traffic congestion and emergency vehicles. Precise GNSS-assisted localization combined with V2X communication enables a wide array of ADAS functionality such as automatic braking if slowing traffic is detected ahead or truck platooning.

True multi-frequency multi-constellation technology gives mosaic™ access to every possible signal from all available GNSS constellations including the U.S. GPS, European Galileo, Russian GLONASS, Chinese BeiDou and Japanese QZSS satellites. Septentrio’s advanced field-proven algorithms exploit this signal diversity to deliver maximum positioning availability even in difficult environments such as under foliage or in urban areas.

Inside a car GPS signals can become “jammed” by nearby electronics or illegal devices called “jammers” which are used by some drivers to avoid road tolling. Mosaic™ uses jamming-resistant signal processing making it robust against interference. Its design is centered around continuous, reliable high-accuracy positioning making mosaic™ suitable for safety-critical applications such as ADAS and autonomous navigation.
