Hexagon’s Positioning Intelligence division has recently demonstrated the TerraStar X, a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) correction technology, which enables instant lane-level accuracy, ideal for autonomous automotive planning programs. In partnership with Ligado Networks, they have demonstrated delivery of TerraStar X technology over both satellite and cellular networks to position vehicles with 5-centimetre (2-inch) accuracy in under a minute. Combining TerraStar X technology with multiple delivery channels is a significant step towards the future of Autonomous X, where cars, UAVs, industrial vehicles, trains, and more will operate safely, securely, reliably, and efficiently.

Article writen by Fairview Microwave for Microwave Product Digest - The race to 5G appears to have picked up speed, particularly in the United States where major telecommunications companies such as AT&T and Verizon have made announcements to launch 5G services by the end of 2018. Advanced LTE (LTE-A) is already expanding rapidly with upgrades to current base stations (BS). Field trials for LTE-Pro (aka 4.5G) are in full swing with download speeds already reaching 1 gigabit per second (Gbps). Fixed wireless access (FWA) technology has already been through significant field trials as well, displaying early successful utilizations of the millimeter-wave (mmWave) spectrum.
