GNSS: Evolution or Revolution

Four Questions on the Status of GNSS
The market for Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) has never looked so buoyant. Are we in the midst of a revolution or simply witnessing evolution pre-planned and destined to run its course? Two fictional respondents, the revolutionist and the evolutionist, here answer four pertinent questions.<P> GNSS applications are becoming mainstream and available in a growing number of devices. And improvements in the signals via new satellite systems and new technology such as secure user plane (SUPL) for wireless devices will improve reliability and functionality. Everyone would agree that there is a lot going on in GNSS. This is manifested in... (read more)

GNSS and Heavy Equipment

Financial Benefits of Telematics and Machine Control
Heavy equipment represents a major capital cost for companies in industries such as construction and agriculture. In recent years Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology, which uses signals from US Global Positioning System and the Russian Glonass satellite system constellations, has been used to improve fleet efficiency. Many companies may hesitate to invest in the technology because management is unaware of its benefits. Such hesitation has only increased during the current global economic downturn. However, recent evidence has emerged to demonstrate the measurable impact GNSS technology may have on company profits.   Equipment telematics, the wireless exchange of electronic information...
