VectorNav Helps Indy Autonomous Problem with GNSS-Aided Inertial Navigation System

Conceived in 2019, the Indy Autonomous Problem goals to advance know-how that may pace the commercialization of totally autonomous automobiles and deployments of superior driver-assistance methods (ADAS). By tapping into collegiate engineering applications, the problem seeks to discover the feasibility of large-scale unmanned automobile racing, whereas providing a platform for college kids to excel in Science, Expertise, Engineering and Math (STEM) and encourage the following era of innovators.

VectorNav is offering every of the 9 IAC groups with its VN-310 Twin Antenna GNSS/INS. Comprised of 3-axis gyroscopes, accelerometers and magnetometers, in addition to two GNSS receivers that allow GNSS-Compassing, the VN-310 offers milliradian-level heading, pitch and roll estimates at charges of as much as 400 Hz. The VN-310 GNSS receivers are able to RTK positioning, enabling place estimation all the way down to centimeter-level accuracy.

“We’re thrilled to be part of the IAC competitors,” mentioned Jeremy Davis, VectorNav Director of Engineering. “IAC’s work is pushing the boundaries of autonomous automobile functionality and we’re assured our inertial navigation methods will contribute to that mission whereas offering schooling and leisure to followers worldwide.”

“The IAC is extraordinarily excited to work with VectorNav because the GNSS/INS supplier for the AV-21,” mentioned Paul Mitchell, President, Indy Autonomous Problem. “Localization and state estimation are the muse of every crew’s autonomy software program. With VectorNav’s tactical-grade GNSS/INS methods, groups can function at excessive speeds whereas performing complicated maneuvers. Moreover, VectorNav’s technical help has been top-notch from preliminary integration to on-track utilization of their methods.”

The IAC will host its subsequent spherical of competitors on November 11, 2022 on the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Price, Texas. VectorNav Applied sciences can be onsite to offer technical help to every of the IAC groups.
