‘Global Navigation Satellite System,’ or ‘GNSS’ is a generic term used for a constellation of satellites with worldwide coverage that function to send positioning and timing signals to receivers located on Earth. It is this technology that allows us to perform simple applications from determining location and finding addresses to more sensitive asset tracking and military operations.
The NEO-6V GPS module and UBX-G6010-SA-DR single-chip GPS receiver have been released by u-blox.
The NEO-6V GPS module and UBX-G6010-SA-DR single-chip GPS receiver have been released by u-blox for high-precision vehicle navigation systems.
Over recent years responsibility for fleet safety has shifted from drivers to organisations and even individual managers - making this a growing issue for Australian businesses.
u-blox has upgraded its latest GPS receiver platform u-blox 6 to give users access to features such as improved sensitivity, lower power consumption, improved anti-jamming performance, jamming detection and shorter time-to-first-fix.
The ACMA’s field operations section has many responsibilities, including the role of identifying and resolving interference to radiocommunications services. Recently, the team received notice of interference to the new 6.8 km CLEM7 tunnel in Brisbane. An ACMA team was assembled to investigate the issue.
The SGDR-001 dead reckoning solution for the Trimble TM3000 can also be used as a stand-alone solution. It uses the Trimble Lassen iQ+DR module as its engine.
GPS tracking by interfacing the Trimble TM3000 asset tracking device with an Iridium short burst data modem provides communication when GSM (GPRS and SMS) is unavailable.
A Coronis wireless smart data platform for remotely monitoring data collection, being used by Australian company Halytech, has incorporated a Wavecard into its Spider, which is a GSM/GPRS modem concentrator operating at 433 MHz. The company specialises in the design and manufacture of data logging, remote monitoring and control instruments using wires and wireless technology.
