Une erreur de GPS conduit des soldats israéliens en plein camp palestinien

Cette application GPS indiquant la circulation et les accidents en temps réel est aussi à l’origine de graves affrontements, qui ont eu lieu lundi 29 février dans le camp de réfugiés palestinien de Kalandia, aux abords de Jérusalem, près du point de contrôle principal vers Ramallah. Deux soldats israéliens, qui ont fait confiance à cet outil sur leur téléphone pour tracer leur route, ont pénétré dans ce quartier à risque par inadvertance, au volant de leur Jeep. Ils ont été accueillis avec des cocktails Molotov et des pierres. Des hélicoptères et des forces spéciales ont été déployés pour venir à leur secours. Les deux soldats ont dû abandonner leur véhicule en flammes et se sont séparés dans la confusion.

It’s only naturally that Football clubs around the world and especially in the cash rich English Premier League want the latest gadgets that are available in the market to ensure they have a competitive advantage over their rivals. One of the biggest concern for any club is the fitness of the players. Are they running as much as they can, what is their heartbeat rate, etc., are things that any coach would love to have on his/her desk to evaluate player performance and fitness. GPS/GNSS and Sports Performance Monitoring GPS/GNSS has been used in a lot of industries ranging from precision agriculture to measuring hurricane wind speeds. The VIPER Pod The Viper unit or Viper Pod as it is called, is essentially a GPS system that collects a multitude of statistics regarding player speed, distance covered, acceleration, deceleration and dynamic stress loads.

How GPS and smart card data is used to reduce city transport congestion

But, like other metropolitan hubs, they faced the inevitable problem of heavy congestion at peak time between 8am and 8.45am. Part of the solution has come in the form of an incentive for passengers: if they registered their smart travel cards and commuted in the hour after these peak times, they would earn points which can be used in a raffle to win cash. The scheme was the result of work by California-based Urban Engines, which uses data from travel cards, like the Oyster card in London, along with GPS data from trains and buses to draw up a detailed model of how the residents of a city move through their transport system. The results in turn show where problems lay. GpRoko - Track Analyzer. Maie Gérardot, Michael Bauder et Tim Freytag : Analyser les mobilités touristiques à Paris en combinant enquête visiteurs et GPS.

Secret life of the cat: The science of tracking our pets

Yet, despite our domestic cats playing a big role in our lives, we know surprisingly little about what they get up to. A research project by BBC2's Horizon and the Royal Veterinary College set out to find out more. Alan Wilson, a professor specialising in animal movement, describes what was involved. As a research scientist and vet at the Structure & Motion Laboratory at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC), I research how and why animals move the way they do.

A lot of my research takes place out in the field so I can study how animals move in their natural environment. RVC researchers usually use technology to track big cats My research team has used this technology to develop some very specialised wildlife tracking tags and collars. Recently, we used our collars to study wild cheetahs in Botswana. Equipment challenge Continue reading the main story. GPS Field Data Collection System - Free eBooks.
