La GSA (Agence Européenne du GNSS) mène de nombreux projets de recherche en rapport avec le signal EGNOS. SCUTUM est l’un d’eux mais de nombreux autres sont également pilotés par la GSA, comme en témoigne la liste des projets de recherche financés par les 6ème et 7ème programmes de recherche communautaire. Vous trouverez ci-dessous une liste non exhaustive de ces projets. Site internet : Why Do We Blindly Follow Our GPS? - Geolounge. How wireless carriers are making money on selling your location? Most of us are more or less aware that in the era of the digital, connected world, where all of us are online 24h a day via smartphones, we generate a lot of data which we are seamlessly sharing with companies, governments and individuals.

Bluetooth beacons represent the next step in indoor positioning and are part of the larger Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure.

Google Eddystone: What does the iBeacon Rival mean for next-gen Location based apps

Using low-powered Bluetooth Beacons to send out location-based information and marketing content isn’t a new development. These low-power transmitters send out information to devices in their range and are as a tech-savy marketing departments’ dream (and for us, Location-based services fans) and now Google is the latest entrant to start working on this exciting tech, with project Eddystone. Apple’s iBeacon, Facebook’s PlaceTips and now Google’s Eddystone Apple entered the market in late 2013, increasing our interest in this cool new tech (Read: Will Apple’s iBeacon change the indoor positioning market) and they implemented their tech in a few places including the Apple Store.

Edinburgh Informatics Forum Pedestrian Database. The dataset consists of a set of detected targets of people walking through the Informatics Forum, the main building of the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh.

The data covers several months of observation which has resulted in about 1000 observed trajectories each working day. By July 4, 2010, there were 27+ million target detections, of which an estimated 7.9 million were real targets, resulting in 92,000+ observed trajectories. MOUCHARD – Le mystérieux texto reçu par les manifestants de Kiev. Cette semaine, de nombreux manifestants de Kiev, en Ukraine, ont reçu sur leur téléphone portable un texto anonyme pour le moins intrigant : "Cher abonné, vous êtes enregistré comme participant à une émeute" ou à "un trouble massif à l'ordre public".

Tous ceux qui ont pu lire ce message d'intimidation, mardi, se trouvaient alors à proximité des affrontements qui ont éclaté avec les forces de l'ordre, relève un article du Guardian. GAGAN: India's SBAS system is now operational. The GPS aided geo-augmented navigation (GAGAN), jointly developed by the Indian Space Research Organization and the Airports Authority of India (AAI) is now operational and can be used by the aviation industry.

GAGAN: India's SBAS system is now operational

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) in India certified GAGAN for use on the 30th of December, 2013 (Source: The Hindu). What does this mean? Although GAGAN signals were available for few months now, the corrections that were being sent by the system was considered not fit for safety-of-life operations i.e. for aircraft navigation, etc. With the DGCA certifying GAGAN, one could use the SBAS corrections with full confidence. All aircrafts flying over the Indian airspace and adjacent areas will be able to make use of the SBAS corrections.

Of course, it’s a fun experiment so it seems worthwhile to repeat the measurement. IndoorAtlas Aims to Use Magnetic Fields to Map the Insides of Building - Arik Hesseldahl. Several years ago, I had a peculiar fascination with location technology.

IndoorAtlas Aims to Use Magnetic Fields to Map the Insides of Building - Arik Hesseldahl

I tried out every GPS gadget that came along, examined how the precision on one would differ from another. Eventually, as navigation moved from dedicated devices to smartphones, the fascination wore off. A little help from the Google Maps app on my iPhone keeps me from getting lost pretty much anywhere I go, by car or on foot. But it doesn’t work so well indoors. Signals from GPS satellites don’t easily penetrate inside buildings — the signals are about as strong as a dim light bulb — and help from Wi-Fi will only get you so far. Earlier this year, Apple acquired a startup called WiFiSlam that does exactly that. This week, I had a chat with Janne Haverinen, the CEO of IndoorAtlas, a startup that has spun out of Finland’s University of Oulu. These chips and the apps associated with them aren’t used all that much, at least actively. Companies See Market for Systems To Counter GPS Jamming Devices. WASHINGTON — The proliferation of GPS jamming devices is creating a market for countermeasures, both in the defense and commercial sectors, industry officials say.

Companies are testing and rolling out new systems to counter the threat, either by overcoming jamming signals or by identifying and locating their source, they say. In a speech at the annual Air Force Association conference on Sept. 17, Gen. William Shelton, commander of Air Force Space Command, which operates the 30-plus satellite GPS constellation, highlighted jamming as an increasingly common problem. Trace téléphone portable.
