PIX Moving and Fixposition Announce Strategic Partnership to Expand the Reach of Autonomous Ground Vehicles
Guiyang, China and Zurich, Switzerland — February 25, 2021 — Today, PIX Moving, inc. and Fixposition AG, announced a partnership to extend PIX Moving’s autonomous vehicle capabilities and enable operation in more challenging environments by implementing Fixposition’s positioning solutions.
PIX Moving and Fixposition have a shared vision for a sustainable and efficient future driven by a shift to autonomous mobility solutions, and are on a mission to shape this future with their revolutionary technologies. The two companies will leverage each other’s expertise and ensure the best players and innovators in their respective fields are contributing to the overall success of the vision by focusing on their core competencies.
PIX Moving has developed some of the world’s most adaptable autonomous vehicle solutions, such as PIXLOOP and PIXBOT, and is dedicated to building a sustainable smart world. The company already operates successfully to produce autonomous chassis in the last-mile logistics, autonomous security, mobile retail, and education segments. PIX Moving will adopt Fixposition’s Vision-RTK, based on the sensor fusion of satellite, computer vision and inertial technologies. The Vision-RTK provides cm-level precise localization and enables greater autonomy in the most demanding situations. The collaboration will empower both parties to expand their existing capabilities and to innovate across PIX Moving’s autonomous mobility offerings and tackle ever more challenging scenarios: from urban canyons to underground passageways and parking buildings; busy loading docks to under tree canopies. The partnership aims to promote autonomous driving in ever more diverse and complex settings and facilitate expansion into further industry sectors such as agriculture and construction.
“PIX Moving has one of the world’s most innovative, flexible, and adaptable autonomous mobility solutions, and we are taking this to the next level by expanding our operational capabilities, allowing us to reach more people and cope with greater challenges,” said Angelo Yu, founder and CEO of PIX Moving. “The partnership with Fixposition is taking us one step closer to the most efficient and sustainable smart mobility technology worldwide.”
“We are impressed by how PIX Moving is reinventing urban mobility and excited about our partnership to accelerate the growth of the autonomous vehicle market. Not only is there huge potential for highway and public road applications, but also in the off-highway vehicle market,” said Zhenzhong Su, CEO of Fixposition. “In integrating our Vision-RTK deep sensor fusion solution in PIX Moving’s modular and universal autonomous chassis platforms we are together unlocking entirely new possibilities. Our collaboration over the coming years will enable multi-functional autonomous platforms to operate in new scenarios and applications previously not achievable.”
Fixposition is on a mission to simplify autonomous navigation by increasing reliability and availability of precise positioning. The company develops deep sensor fusion of RTK-GNSS, IMU, and computer vision to ensure high-reliability of centimeter-accurate positioning in all types of environments. This disruptive technology enables safer and more automated operation of drones and ground robotic vehicles. The company was founded by two top-talent Pioneer Fellowship teams from ETH Zurich who have joined their extensive know-how in GNSS and computer vision.
