Deutsche Telekom (DT) partnered with Swift Navigation, a positioning solutions provider for autonomous vehicles, to offer services to enterprises. The Precise Positioning offering is a wide area, global navigation satellite system (GNSS) service that purports to position vehicles more accurately and is being pitched for autonomous driving applications, such as cellular vehicle‑to-everything communications and lane‑level directions. It is said to provide accuracy to under 10cm, compared with standard GNSS positioning of between three and five meters (which is not sufficient for autonomous systems). DT indicated the service could be used for: autonomous robots in the agricultural sector, connected-cars, and fleet management. DT is offering the Precise Positioning service in Germany and the USA, with expansion across Europe said to be underway.
