HERE introduces HD GNSS, a precise global positioning solution for the mass-market

  • Enables new user experiences with lane level navigation, augmented and virtual reality
  • HD GNSS combines Precise Point Positioning and Real Time Kinematic positioning methods, allowing for fast convergence time, high availability, and global coverage
  • Supports off the shelf mobile devices and IoT trackers, equipped with dual frequency chipsets such as Broadcom BCM47765 and BCM47755

Businesses and services across industries increasingly rely on more accurate positioning technologies, from ridesharing and assisted driving functions to location-based games and enterprise application development. HERE Technologies, a location data and technology platform, announced today the introduction of High Definition Global Navigation Satellite System (HD GNSS) positioning, a cloud-based solution that enables mass market devices to achieve sub-meter accuracy across the globe.

Devices and vehicles for the mass market are becoming equipped with dual frequency GNSS receivers which together with the HD GNSS service enables high precision positioning. This capability was cost and geographically prohibitive less than two years ago. Now, HERE HD GNSS accelerates chipset, hardware and software makers ability to offer a step change in what can be delivered to consumers in new product capabilities, features and user experiences.

“HERE currently powers hundreds of millions of devices globally with assisted GNSS, network and HD Wi-Fi positioning technologies, that improve outdoor, urban and indoor positioning accuracy and overall user experience. We are excited to add HD GNSS to our portfolio and provide our customers and partners with the improved positioning accuracy they need to build their next innovative solution on top of our platform,” said Jussi Koski, Vice President of Tech, Media, Telco and Retail Applications at HERE Technologies.

HERE HD GNSS data delivery is also optimized for mobile devices, requires no additional hardware and comes equipped with spoofing detection and phone sensor integration. HERE HD GNSS provides global coverage (including China and Japan), with single-frequency mobile device support in the future.
