HD GNSS- An advanced mass-market solution

As businesses across the world increasingly rely on positioning and location technologies to reach their customers, the need for a powerful high-definition positioning system had risen. Positioning data users, namely businesses, are ready to pay for higher accuracy, dynamic data points, and a system that provides high definition information. 

From ride-sharing companies to location-based gaming- all sectors need better quality data to increase and improve their operations.

Recently, HERE technologies, a platform dealing in location technology and data, announced their High Definition Global Navigation Satellite System (HD GNSS). This cloud-based positioning service and platform enables mass-market tools and machinery to gain sub-meter precision globally.

Not only this, the new HD GNSS enables users to use lane-level navigation, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. HD GNSS combines both real-time positioning with the precise-point method of positioning, allowing global accessibility, better availability and faster confluence time. 

HD GNSS is supported by multiple devices including cellphones and IoT tracking devices and has dual frequency chipsets to enable this feature.

With devices being equipped with HD receivers rapidly, the utility of HD GNSS has increased, leading to a higher precision when it comes to positioning. About two years ago, this technology was said to be cost and geographic ineffective, but now, with the advanced chipsets, hardware, and software available in the hands of the people, HD GNSS has become much more feasible. 

Jussi Koski, Vice President of Tech, Media, Telco and Retail Applications at HERE Technologies said, “HERE currently powers hundreds of millions of devices globally with assisted GNSS, network and HD Wi-Fi positioning technologies that improve outdoor, urban and indoor positioning accuracy and overall user experience. We are excited to add HD GNSS to our portfolio and provide our customers and partners with the improved positioning accuracy they need to build their next innovative solution on top of our platform.”

One of the most sought-after features is that HD GNSS does not require any additional hardware to work in mobile devices. It comes with spoof-detection and can also detect the device’s sensors.

Apart from this HERE is working with the telecom and its ecosystem to bring about a change wave. They are working with hardware manufacturers, telecom companies, and many more parallel domains to create awareness about the new, precise, and cost-effective way of positioning.

Their aim is to change positioning and location technology from the ground level ad increase efficiencies at scale. 

HD GNSS is currently being used in various upcoming techs such as autonomous driving, road lane assistance, gaming and AR, and many more.
