ACEINNA INS401 Inertial Navigation System

ACEINNA has launched the INS401, an inertial navigation and GNSS/RTK solution designed for precise positioning of autonomous vehicles. The INS401 is part of ACEINNA’s new product portfolio that provides high-accuracy and high-integrity localization for developers and manufacturers of ADAS (advanced driver-assistance systems) and autonomy solutions.

The INS401 is an advanced inertial navigation system featuring an RTK-enabled dual frequency GNSS receiver, triple-redundant inertial sensors, and positioning engine. It is designed for use in L2+ and higher ADAS and other high-volume applications requiring precise position information, and provides centimetre-level accuracy, enhanced reliability, and superior performance during GNSS outages and in GNSS-challenged urban environments.

The INS401 has been specifically developed for automotive applications using automotive-qualified components, and is certified to ASIL-B level according to ISO26262. The unit is small, compact, and turnkey with a rugged aluminium housing, and includes everything needed for design and development of a robust navigation system. The flexible platform also enables easy customization for rapid time to market.

Wade Appelman, President and COO of ACEINNA, commented: “Based on a decade-long history in ADAS and safety applications, ACEINNA is ready for today’s and future autonomous mobility applications. The INS401 is our next step forward, delivering complex INS/RTK technology to mass markets with turnkey products. Highly accurate INS solutions like these usually run ten grand or more – we have sliced that to under $500!”

Teoman Ustun, VP of Marketing at ACEINNA, stated: “We are now extending our proven solutions to the entire range of autonomous vehicle applications – from SAE Level 2 to Level 5 – and bringing complex INS/RTK technology to mass markets with our turnkey products, starting with the INS401.”
