    news High-precision geolocation

    Hello friends, although there is currently a lot of controversy about the privacy of the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], Qualcomm has partnered with Trimble RTX to provide phones with a geolocation with an accuracy of up to less than one meter. This alliance will multiply by up to five the accuracy of the location data displayed on the next high-end Android mobile phones.

    It is not yet known if this improvement will also be available on smartphones that are already on the market, Qualcomm will put it at the service of manufacturers, suppliers and developers to implement them in their 'apps', products and services.

    Just for interest I will say " unless they have access to the SA "selective Availability of the Satellites This will never happen" on saying that Internet providers have been trying for some time and have got within <1KM of my place.
    So if they are using an Online active case. "Sorry it is a waste of time " except if your only in the city , then your in trouble because your lost if you leave Online Service. oh dear if the Apocalypses happens ya lost even more. Because most people have no idea how to search the Web yet alone drive/walk around their own city WITH OUT a GPS.
    Sorry this Generation is lost.

    Well, it is said that who knows how to ask, never gets lost

    It does not seem that this new chip can overcome the inaccuracy caused by selective Availability of the Satellites, but .....

    Activated text-link in the 1st post, sorry!!

    Read your link my phone and tab are not @ android 12 yet. Yes it is Wifi/cell tower linked, I am happy with 4mtrs acc.
    Not sure when the Google vehicles do there drive around how accurate they are set, if they where set to Surveyor then everyone would be driving 4mtrs off the road?

    Ufff, I hope not!!

    Using multi-satellite devices, as some Garmin models use, and/or allowing them to avoid [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], supposedly eliminated on May 2, 2000, "enjoy" greater accuracy?

    Well, as you can see, I can provide some questions but, no answer

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well, trying to find answers to the question posed, I have reached several conclusions, one of them is that although I never travel inside an autonomous car, I will soon share the road with this type of vehicle, therefore, it will be better to know its virtues and limitations .....

    Willem Strijbosch, TomTom's head of autonomous driving, explains that the maps required by [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] are different from current map applications, as they will have to "fulfill a critical safety function", rather than being used solely for navigation. "Another change is that GPS can no longer be used as the only means of location on the map," he adds, as the positioning system is not accurate enough for autonomous cars. (expansion.com)

    - Getting an autonomous car to circulate with precision and safety is the result of [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], all of them essential to obtain that goal, but the ones that have caught my attention the most are the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], with its [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], and the high definition 3d maps .....

    Brian McClendon, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] who ran Google Maps and co-founded the company that would become Google Earth, explains that the reason these maps are so important for autonomous cars lies not only in location, but also in that it "reduces the work that autonomous software has to do to recognize the world around them." By comparing the current environment to what is predicted on the map, he explains, robots can focus attention only on things that are different, such as a pedestrian or a bicycle. (expansion.com)

    - The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] of the data that autonomous cars generate, is a challenge....And as usual, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] lags behind technology......The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] regulation, in force since the beginning of 2021, checks the level of protection of a car against attacks against the vehicle's connected systems, carried out physically, remotely and through applications. It requires the approval of any new vehicle with a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] certificate. Failure to comply with this requirement would result in fines of 30,000 euros per unit.


    We applaud recommendations that force automakers to use proper terminology when marketing these systems, to prevent motorists from becoming convinced that their car is fully autonomous when it is not. (Matthew Avery-bbc.com)


    - Well, if I see a Google car in that situation, know that all the responsibility is not on your GPS system.
