U-Blox Korea’s recently released solution of “Empion Live 3D” for automobiles is attracting much attention from the navigation market. It is a new concept of solution that allows the user to confirm the location whether the GPS signal is originally blocked or weak, by integrating the information received from both GPS satellite and sensor installed on car.
It employs the existing technology of dead reckoning, which was originally widely applied in the area of aircrafts or vessels and is a technology that estimates location by utilizing some useful related information. Especially, in a place where the GPS signal is weak, the product can calculate the current location by utilizing the data acquiring from both wheel tick sensor and mobile data of vehicle. An official of the company was quoted as saying that “We can guarantee that it is very useful for all the purposes thanks to its ability of complete drive in GPS chip”.
