TOKYO--()--Lighthouse Technology and Consulting Co., Ltd (Tokyo, JAPAN. Founder and Representative Director: Hiroaki Maeda) (LHTC) is proceeding a program to collect precise GNSS data on major highways in Japan. The data is an inevitable “must use” tools for high precision positioning systems used in automated driving vehicles.

Backgrounds of the data collecting
Automated driving on public streets has issues to overcome, and the competition to develop the technology among companies are gradually accelerating due to recent technologies’ progress in sensors, image recognition, and AI. In addition, Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (Japanese version of GPS) has brought attention to centimeters leveled high precision positioning.
When dealing with satellite positioning technology for automated driving systems, it is inevitable to have a variety of high precision field data at the point of development, testing, and fine tuning prior to the driving test of the vehicles, and to have the reference position data at the point of evaluation.

To utilize the collected data
LHTC is planning to finish the data collecting by December 2017, and after consolidating the data, will start the service to provide the data package “Mobile GNSS Field Data Set” and high precision positioning system products for developing mobile vehicle applied technology.
“Mobile GNSS Field Data Set” is a package of field data and precise reference position data, which will accelerate the development speed for consumers by decreasing the time and cost to systemize and do all the data collecting by themselves.
