May Mobility Solves Autonomous Vehicle Positioning Challenges with Accurate & Affordable KVH Inertial Sensors

May Mobility, an autonomous vehicle company from Ann Arbor, MI, beat everyone to the punch by successfully launching the first commercial deployment of autonomous vehicles in the United States in June 2018. May Mobility’s autonomously driven electric shuttles navigate themselves through traffic using a highly accurate dead reckoning localization solution that’s aided by a high-performance inertial measurement unit (IMU) from KVH Industries, Inc.

This case study explores:

  • Why precise localization is essential for accurate autonomous navigation
  • How inertial solutions are fused with GNSS for reliable and precise positioning
  • Why inertial sensors are key to accurate and safe autonomous navigation
  • Why KVH’s 1725 IMU was selected to be the backbone of the May Mobility localization solution
