Why Do We Blindly Follow Our GPS? - Geolounge. Ad Most people would agree that technology has made modern life more convenient and comfortable. What we can accomplish with today’s technology would astound anyone living just twenty years ago. Consider Global Positioning Systems, better known by the acronym GPS. With the aid of satellite navigation, we can type in any address, and, in theory, our GPS will guide us to that exact location. Around the world, there is ample evidence that GPS navigation is not foolproof. In 2012, three Japanese tourists in Australia drove into the Pacific Ocean after their GPS told them to.

A group of Belgian tourists set out for a skiing vacation in the French Alps at a resort called La Plagne. Robert Zeigler found himself stranded near the top of a mountain near Bergun, Switzerland. Robert Zeigler’s van is airlifted to safety after her relied on his GPS unit which guided him up a goat trail. Blindly following directions from a GPS could even have fatal consequences.

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. When it comes to our location data, we’re already used to sharing it for the common good of all drivers by using apps like Waze, where we consciously crowdsourced our geographical position to let other drivers smartly avoid traffic jams.

Most of us are also aware that whenever we use a real-time traffic apps our location is used as a traffic probe data by companies including Google, TomTom, HERE and others. We also suspect that Google tracks our position (check Google Location History website) to provide us with more targeted and therefore effective location-based ads. What kind of location data do Wireless Carriers actually have? But AirSage also resells its data. There is also a lot of business happening outside the US. Related.

Locata replaces GPS for NASA Langley UAS research - Geospatial PR : Geospatial PR. Locata Positioning will Underpin Future Unmanned Aerial System Research at NASA’s Famed Langley Research Center Canberra, Australia and Las Vegas, Nevada – Aug 31, 2015 – Locata Corporation announced today that NASA plans to install a Locata network (LocataNet) as the core positioning technology for safety-critical Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) research at its world-renowned Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. NASA Langley is tasked with performing rigorous and repeatable scientific evaluation of new UAS safety and technology concepts which are currently under development.

The LocataNet will provide the vitally important high-precision non-GPS-based positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) that is essential for this work. “Locata is proud and delighted to have received an order for NASA’s first LocataNet,” said Nunzio Gambale, Locata CEO. The NASA LocataNet is scheduled to be installed and commissioned before the end of 2015. About Locata. Google Eddystone: What does the iBeacon Rival mean for next-gen Location based apps. Bluetooth beacons represent the next step in indoor positioning and are part of the larger Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure.

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. A view of the scene and image data from which the detected targets are found is: The main entry/exit points (marked) are at the bottom left (front door), top left (cafe), top center (stairs), top right (elevator and night exit), bottom right (labs).

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. "Dear subscriber, you are registered as a participant in a riot” @radiosvoboda saw it live as it came in last night— RFE/RL (@RFERL) 21 Janvier 2014 Sur les réseaux sociaux, ce message, traduit en anglais, a été largement diffusé.

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. 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. On a personal level, if you have a SBAS capable GNSS receiver, you can easily use the SBAS services from GAGAN by setting your SBAS channel in the receiver to track PRN 127 and 128 provided the receiver is near the coverage area.

Where Is the Accelerometer in an iPhone? - Wired Science. Image: Rhett Allain Actually, I’ve done this experiment before (although with an iPod touch).

Of course, it’s a fun experiment so it seems worthwhile to repeat the measurement. Of course most smart phones have some type of accelerometer so that you can do all sorts of cool things with it (like see how high you can toss your phone). Oh, and here is some more info on how one of these accelerometers work. Experimental Setup The basic idea is to read the acceleration values from the phone. Also, if you have an object moving in a circle the direction of this acceleration is towards the center of the circle. If I have the y axis of the iPhone always pointing towards the center of the circle then the y-component of the acceleration will be constant. How do you record acceleration on the iPhone?

It’s free and you can record for some time interval and then email a cvs file with the data. What about rotating the device? Data Analysis Now I just need the angular speed. Now for the fun part. 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. 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.

Now there are numerous outfits that are aiming to fix that. 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.

“Lots of jammers [are] out there for GPS,” Shelton said. “In fact, you can buy a jammer on the Internet. Lockheed Martin Space Systems of Denver, prime contractor for the next-generation GPS 3 satellite system, has said that the new satellites will have eight times the jamming resistance of their predecessors. Raytheon Co. of Waltham, Mass., is also working on a new product for its GPS anti-jam line called MiniGAS. Trace téléphone portable.
