  • Publication number: 20180259651
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for assessing a position of a vehicle are described herein. The disclosure proposes ascertaining a first absolute position utilizing a conventional GNSS receiver. This is to be compared with a second absolute position, which is ascertained in a secure safety unit or a secure ASIL-compatible chip, and is therefore always plausible.
