Will accelerate highly accurate positioning for autonomous driving and much more

TOKYO, January 17, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) announced today that it has developed a prototype of the world's smallest* antenna for high-precision satellite-based positioning in four frequency bands used by the world's main satellite-positioning systems and positioning-augmentation services.** The highly compact antenna, which is expected to be installed in diverse vehicles and even drones, will accelerate high-precision satellite-based positioning for autonomous driving and many other applications.

* As of January 17, 2022, among antennas for high-precision satellite-positioning in four frequency bands (according to Mitsubishi Electric)
** Services that provide information for correcting positioning errors and confirming positioning reliability

Features

1) Proprietary technology achieves world’s smallest 4-band antenna for diverse vehicles

  • The antenna’s two folded linear elements are wired three dimensionally and symmetrically on each of four molded-resin layers, which are perpendicular to the module’s horizontal surface. This unique design has resulted in the world’s smallest four-band antenna for the high-precision satellite-based positioning of diverse autonomous vehicles, including drones and small tractors as well as automobiles.
