Autocity Partners with Fixposition to Set a New Standard in the Autonomous Street Sweeping Industry

This collaboration marks the design-in of Fixposition’s cutting-edge Vision-RTK 2 positioning sensor into Autocity’s production vehicle, the Guangpo autonomous street sweeper, setting a new standard for autonomy in the sanitation sector.

Shenzhen, People’s Republic of China – March 15th, 2024 – Autocity, a pioneer in automotive-grade unmanned driving and smart city solutions, announces a strategic partnership with Fixposition AG, the leader in high-precision positioning technology. This collaboration marks the integration of Fixposition’s cutting-edge Vision-RTK 2 positioning sensor into Autocity’s Guangpo sweeping vehicle, setting a new standard for autonomy in the sanitation sector. 

Autocity’s Guangpo, a next-gen autonomous street sweeper, boasts High Driving Automation with an array of sophisticated sensors and AI Cloud platform. This integration facilitates numerous advanced features including autonomous navigation, obstacle detection and avoidance, automatic waste disposal, weather adaptation capabilities, and more. The deployment of Guangpo in Guangzhou, Huizhou, and Shenzhen epitomizes a leap towards fully automated urban sanitation services. 

Urban environments pose unique challenges for satellite-based navigation systems, with buildings and foliage often disrupting signal paths. This can significantly impair the operational efficacy of autonomous vehicles. The Vision-RTK 2 sensor by Fixposition addresses these issues head-on with its deep fusion technology, combining data from RTK-GNSS, IMU, and computer vision systems. This approach ensures that Guangpo operates with unparalleled precision, maintaining centimeter-level accuracy in positioning, even in the most challenging urban landscapes. 

Holly Guo, co-CEO of Autocity, expressed her enthusiasm about the partnership, "Integrating Fixposition's Vision-RTK 2 has significantly enhanced the adaptability and reliability of our autonomous sweepers under diverse conditions. This collaboration not only fortifies Autocity's position in the market but also opens new avenues for Fixposition to expand its application spectrum."  

Echoing the sentiment, Zhenzhong Su, co-founder and CEO of Fixposition AG, added, Autocity achieved the implementation of autonomous driving technology in the sanitation field, representing a significant contribution to societal progress. It not only helps urban sanitation departments in reducing costs and increasing efficiency, but also freeing sanitation workers from the high-intensity work in the cold winter and hot summer. We're excited to contribute to this transformative initiative.
