Our Friends at u-blox have released an article, “Five Trends in GPS: Satellite-based positioning is everywhere; a look back at 2020 offers some insights into how it will shape our future.”

u blox shares five trends in gps hyperedge embed

The article delves into the following trends:

  • Smaller, faster, more efficient – getting physically smaller, tracking more satellites, and using less power
  • Security – from antenna to cloud, implementing solutions to avoid misuse of GPS
  • From centimeter to nansecond accuracies – the adoption of high-precision, low-cost technology will accelerate across industries
  • New paradigms in e-micromobility – use of GPS in small, light weight vehicles (like scooters and ebikes) will become more advanced and multifunctional
  • Immersive experiences and other surprises – innovators will continue to innovate and create/discover completely new applications
