GPS Implant to track our dearly beloveds that uses the Galileo system. £10,000 please!
It's a GPS-Clone...and they're looking for a patentable application that hasn't been thought of before. GOOD LUCK!
Galileo should be more accurate than GPS. I think they're designing it to work alongside GPS and the Russian GLONASS satellites. Hopefully that should mean better GPS reception across the world.
I'm up with the Gareth. The fact that Galileo is an European space product will mean more accuracy in the data received from the GPS units and to not be dependent on US
Indeed it should, and should really benefit everyone in the end. Understandable to maintain independence from the US GPS system, though it would be nice to see an international effort under one system. Soon we'll be seeing GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, COMPASS, and all the smaller regional ones all operated by separate countries. Granted, they all work together and there's plenty of regulation, it just seems odd that a global navigation system is being left in the hands of individual parties.
The extra redundancy is very welcome, especially for mission critical applications. Even though the US removed selective availability years ago, there was still a need for Differential GPS for accuracy and fail safe reasons and being able to use signals from two or more systems can only be a good thing, not just for accuracy but for reliability and dependability too. The first hardware to be able to receive signals from both GPS and Galileo will sell like hot cakes.
