Telit's GNSS to Conduct Automotive Navigation for PLK Technology

By CIOReview | Monday, March 28, 2016

FREMONT, CA: Telit’s SL869-V2 GNSS IoT (Internet of Things) module will now deliver positioning functionality for PLK Technology’s Optian, reports GPS World.

Optian combines the features of an Advanced Driver Assistant System (ADAS) and a high-end automotive black box. Telit’s SL869-V2 can be installed in vehicles, industrial, wearable and portable digital devices and is a subminiature multi-satellite receiver module. It achieves an efficient level of stability for navigation applications by tracking GPS and GLONASS.

Optian is capable of post-processing accidents, implementing accident prevention measures, delivering lane departure warning, forwarding collision warning, and front car departure alert functions. Optian uses the Telit SL869-V2 GPS module to sense displacement, from which it derives speed and distance between cars to warn the driver about the risk of collision.

ADAS are systems found in modern vehicles designed to automate, adapt and enhance vehicle security and driver experience. Safety features in ADAS include warnings for collision and accident avoidance which help drivers implement safeguards, and sharpen their focus on control of the vehicle.

“It is rewarding to secure the Optian project for Telit’s GNSS module. The selection process was very stringent and PLK’s choice of the SL869-V2 is a testament to the quality and performance of the product,” said Steven Kim, Senior Sales Director of Telit Korea. “Telit GNSS modules are not only successful in the automotive sector but also in various other industries. We expect that cooperation with PLK will expand as they continue developing innovative systems and products that make driving a safer experience for motorists everywhere.”
