High precision navigation system for autonomous vehicles
ACEINNA has announced that it has reduced the cost for developers creating mission critical guidance and navigation systems for autonomous vehicles - robots, drones, industrial, construction, and agricultural machinery. This new ACEINNA OPENRTK330L can replace the expensive and bulky precision RTK/INS systems used in today’s autonomous systems.
First global VDES Satellite network to launch in 2022
A newly established consortium is going to develop a network for low Earth orbit satellites delivering ice chart data to ships at sea. This hopes to significantly improve navigation for ships in rough seas and raise security for the crew on board. The network will also allow the satellite operator Sternula to launch its first out of a total of fifty small satellites.
Security - the next frontier in GPS
Back in 2016, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers were being spoofed by an unexpected cohort of security users: Pokémon Go players. By tricking their smartphones into believing that they were moving around, these players had found a way to win points - and online prestige - without even getting off their seats.
