  1. uNav 0.64 Turn-by-Turn GPS Navigation App Now Available for Ubuntu Phones Map viewer and GPS navigator for car, bike and walking uNav 0.64 comes four months after version 0.63, which was a minor update improving the simulator, adding support for skipping confirmation of routes, rounding off the distance to the nearest turn in guidance mode, fixing the '¿¿¿' string in POI names, adding CartoDB layers, as well as a bash script to generate translations. Not that uNav 0.64 is a major release, but it looks like it adds some improvements than the previous version. Among these, we can mention centering on POI (Point of Interest) in search instead of in an area, correct roundabout of arrow directions for some countries, and Breton voice support. Available now for all Ubuntu Phone users uNav 0.64 also attempts to improve the out-of-the-box experience for newcomers by fixing the main window, which appeared to be unnecessarily large, spicing up the "empty state" of the application, remove "hairdresser" from the POI list, as well as to rename various translation files. If you're the proud owner of an Ubuntu Phone and you're running the latest version of the Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system (OTA-14), you should find the new uNav 0.64 release on the Ubuntu Store. Existing users can update the application right now through the usual channels. For those unfamiliar with uNav, it's an online and offline map viewer and GPS navigator powered by OpenStreetMap and Mapzen. It features convergence support, which means that you can use it on a desktop too if you're Ubuntu Phone can be converged. The app offers turn-by-turn navigation for bikes, cars, and walking. Source
  2. There’s no denying that the new currency notes in India look visually appealing and come with enhanced security features. But they still don’t carry a GPS chip, despite what everyone is telling you on WhatsApp. India’s finance minister Arun Jaitley today confirmed that there’s no GPS chip embedded on the new Rs 2,000 notes. Responding to the question, an irate Jaitley said, "from where did you come to know this? I haven't heard of it." Hours before Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a surprise address to the nation and announce the new currency notes, a rumor began circulating on WhatsApp that a new Rs 2,000 note will be issued by the Indian government and it will come embedded with a nano-GPS chip. The rumor gained steam once Modi made the new Rs 2,000 notes official and also made it to many news publications as journalists scrambled to find anything they could to write about the new currency bills. The WhatsApp rumor suggested that the "Nano GPS chip" have signal reflectors that would work even if the notes were buried at a depth of 120 meters. The move, the WhatsApp forwards suggested, were to enable the government track consignments of these notes via satellite in its bid to tackle corruption. Of course, the claims are baseless. The new Rs 2,000 notes have gone into circulation from today and people have been busy posting their selfies with the new notes on Twitter and Facebook. At a televised address on Tuesday evening, Modi said it was necessary to scrap existing Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes and introduce new notes to curb black money flow in the nation, which remain undisclosed to the government and used in terrorism activities as well as corruption. The notes are ostensibly designed in a way to prevent counterfeiting. Article source
  3. Delete Google Maps? Go Ahead, Says Google, We'll Still Track You Google Play services need constant location info Google, it seems, is very, very interested in knowing where you are at all times. Users have reported battery life issues with the latest Android build, with many pointing the finger at Google Play – Google's app store – and its persistent, almost obsessive need to check where you are. Amid complaints that Google Play is always switching on GPS, it appears Google has made it impossible to prevent the app store from tracking your whereabouts unless you completely kill off location tracking for all applications. You can try to deny Google Play access to your handheld's location by opening the Settings app and digging through Apps -> Google Play Store -> Permissions, and flipping the switch for "location." But you'll be told you can't just shut out Google Play services: you have to switch off location services for all apps if you want to block the store from knowing your whereabouts. It's all or nothing, which isn't particularly nice. This is because Google Play services pass on your location to installed apps via an API. The store also sends your whereabouts to Google to process. Google doesn't want you to turn this off. It also encourages applications to become dependent on Google's closed-source Play services, rather than use the interfaces in the open-source Android, thus ensuring that people continue to run Google Play on their devices. It's a similar story over at Google Maps. Although it makes far more sense for Maps to have access to your location, the latest build doesn't give you a decent option of turning it off. If you do cut off Maps' access to your location, "basic features of your device may no longer function as intended," the operating system warns. Needless to say, this is not making some users very happy. Security researcher Mustafa Al-Bassam reported on Twitter that he "almost had a heart attack" when he walked into a McDonald's and was prompted on his phone to download the fast food restaurant's app. Al-Bassam dug into his phone's apps to figure out how that had happened, and was amazed to find that his suspected culprit – Google Maps – was not responsible. It was Google Play that had monitored his location thousands of times. So, the options are not great: you can either delete both Google Maps and Google Play, or you have to repeatedly turn your phone's location services on and off as required throughout the day, which is extremely irritating. "Kind of defeats the purpose of fine-grained privacy controls," Al-Bassam noted, adding: "Google is encouraging developers to use the Play location API instead of the native Android API, making an open OS dependent on proprietary software." Google was not available for comment. Source
  4. Rainy and foggy weather contributed to the driver's error, police say A Kitchener woman was cold and wet, but unhurt, after police say she drove her car down a boat launch in Tobermory, Ont., late Thursday night. The woman was following her GPS in rainy and foggy conditions. (Ontario Provincial Police) Police in Tobermory, Ont., pulled a red car from the harbour early Friday morning after a Kitchener woman followed instructions from her GPS and drove down a boat launch and into the water. Ontario Provincial Police said the woman was following her GPS "when she took a wrong turn into Little Tub Harbour" late Thursday night. It was raining, dark and foggy at the time. Combining "weather conditions and the driver being new to the area, a fully submerged vehicle was the result," police said in a release. A police photo shows where a Kitchener woman's car was submerged in the Little Tub Harbour in Tobermory, Ont., late Thursday night. The car was removed Friday morning. (Ontario Provincial Police) The 23-year-old Kitchener woman was able to roll down her window, get out of the submerged car and swim approximately 30 metres to shore in 4 C water. She then called for help. Except for being cold and wet, the woman was unhurt. A tow truck was able to pull the submerged car out of the harbour at 8:22 a.m. Friday morning. Tobermory is approximately 250 km north of Waterloo. The Source
  5. GPS Falsely Guided This Woman’s Car Straight Into a 100-Foot-Deep Lake Woman following GPS ends up in a 100-foot-deep lake A 23-year-old Canadian woman’s overdependence on technology landed her into ice waters. Yes…it indeed! According to the Toronto Sun, the woman was following a route on her car’s GPS while driving in the bad night time fog in Ontario when it directed her to drive onto a boat launch at Little Tub Harbor. Since, it was raining and visibility was difficult, she ended up driving straight into Lake Huron as her GPS instructed her to keep going. Despite the vehicle becoming completely submerged in the icy water, the woman was able to roll down the window, grab her purse, and swim to shore before the car completely sunk, according to the police report. The car has already been removed from the water, and the woman escaped without any injuries and did not even suffer hypothermia from her dip in the four-degree-Celsius water. “She’s in really good spirits,” Constable Katrina Rubinstein-Gilbert said. “Of course a little embarrassed, but taking it all in stride.” Rubinstein-Gilbert said alcohol was “absolutely not” a factor in the incident. No charges are pending. Boats had been kept away from that part of the bay overnight by emergency services, to avoid hitting the car. The red Toyota Yaris was taken out of the water on Friday morning. Describing the incident, Rubinstein-Gilbert said the driving conditions were difficult with rain and fog making visibility difficult when the woman approached the Little Tub Harbor. As a result, Rubinstein-Gilbert said the woman made a wrong turn with dramatic consequences. “How the launch works, it’s not an airborne thing. It’s not ‘Dukes of Hazzard.’ It kind of goes off the road and the launch just drops all of a sudden,” she said. “So she would have been driving on the road, and then all of a sudden just dropped and hit water.” Source

  7. Most of us rely on global positioning systems (GPS) to figure out where we're going on a daily basis, but current technology works on the scale of metres - and although it can usually pinpoint which road you're on, it often can't determine exactly where you are on that road. But that could be about to change, thanks to new research that makes GPS accurate right down to the centimetre level - so, less than half an inch. And the new technology won't just stop your Uber driver from getting lost en route, it could also be the key to bringing driverless cars on the road, and even making airline travel safer. "To fulfil both the automation and safety needs of driverless cars, some applications need to know not only which lane a car is in, but also where it is in that lane - and need to know it continuously at high rates and high bandwidth for the duration of the trip," said lead research Jay Farrell, from the University of California, Riverside. Right now, GPS devices calculate your location and velocity using a network of space-based satellites. By measuring the time it takes to receive signals from four or more of these satellites, they're able to pinpoint your location to within approximately 10 metres. A slightly improved system has recently come online, known as differential GPS (DGPS), and this brings the accuracy down to 1 metre thanks to the use of ground-based reference stations. But that's still not good enough if we ever want to sit back and read the newspaper while a driverless car ferries us to work. To fix this, Farrell and his team developed a new technique that supplements existing GPS data with on-board inertial measurements from a sensor. The merging of those measurements in itself isn't new, but in the past it's required super-expensive computers to combine the two data sources, which meant it was never going to work in your car or smartphone, regardless of how accurate it was. But the researchers have now created a new set of algorithms, which reduce the computations and processing power needed to integrate the two systems by several orders of magnitude, making the technology a whole lot more affordable. So affordable, in fact, that we could soon see this centimetre-level GPS used in our personal devices. "Achieving this level of accuracy with computational loads that are suitable for real-time applications on low-power processors will not only advance the capabilities of highly specialised navigation systems, like those used in driverless cars and precision agriculture," explains Farrell, "but it will also improve location services accessed through mobile phones and other personal devices, without increasing their cost." The new technology isn't going to stop your GPS getting all messed up when you're in the middle of the CBD or driving through a tunnel - that's the result of interference with the satellite signals - but it's going to give the system a whole lot more information to base your location on, and that should make a world of difference for navigation. We can't wait. The results have been published in IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology. http://www.sciencealert.com/researchers-have-made-gps-accurate-to-within-a-centimetre

  9. India Says Goodbye To GPS, To Have Its Own Desi Navigation System, IRNSS Bye bye GPS, India to soon have its own position determination system The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is developing an indigenous position determination system that will replace the American Global Positioning System (GPS) used to get the time and place information anywhere on or near the earth and will also have enhanced access in remote areas. “We will have our own position determination system using our own navigation constellation, the IRNSS series which will be operational by middle of next year. It is a kind of replacement GPS…The US is offering the GPS navigation, IRNSS is indigenous,” said Deviprasad Karnik, the director of publication and public relations, ISRO. It will also aid in navigation and monitoring of fleet (trucks and ships) movement, the official added. Developed by ISRO, Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) is a regional navigation satellite that would provide accurate position information to users in the country, and will be under complete control of the Indian government. “Once the constellation is completed, we need some time to establish the accuracy part, validation and other things. The advantage is that the navigation range has been designed to span around 1,500 km radius around India,” he said. “GPS is not available at all places. Signal is weak in remote areas but our own signal will be available in remote areas with better accuracy.” As an example of the app-based positioning service, Karnik said, it will help in effective management of fleet movement. “Monitoring and effective management of fleet of trucks or ship monitoring will be done through spacecraft. For example, for ships the system can inform which route will be more effective. That will save time and fuel,” he said. IRNSS is needed because the foreign government-controlled global navigation satellite system does not guarantee service in all situations. The two types of services provided by IRNSS are as follows: Standard Positioning Service (SPS) – This will be provided to all users Restricted Service (RS) – This is an encrypted service that will be provided to authorised users only.(Including the military) The applications of IRNSS include disaster management, vehicle tracking and fleet management, integration with mobile phones, terrestrial navigation aid for travellers, visual and voice navigation for drivers, and more. With this system, the ISRO will provide GPS connectivity to most of the rural part in India by 2016. For this mission, ISRO will be using seven satellites namely IRNSS-1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E, 1F and 1G out of which IRNSS-1A, 1B, 1C, 1D are already in the Orbit. The remaining three satellites including 1E, 1F and 1G will be launched in January, February and March respectively. Meanwhile, the ISRO organization is hoping to get the IRNSS fully operationable by next year July. Moreover, the ISRO is requesting the device manufacturer’s to incorporate the additional hardware, so that the device can receive the signals from IRNSS. As per the official, the so-called IRNSS will provide location accurately to almost 20 meters. This data from IRNSS can be used in all the devices, which supports the additional hardware. “Both these L and S band signals received from seven satellite constellation of the IRNSS are being calculated by special embedded software which reduces the errors caused by atmospheric disturbances significantly. This in turn gives superior quality location accuracy than the American GPS system”, said a senior ISRO official in an interview. ISRO also aims to make signals available not only to India and surrounding countries but also to the entire globe, said ISRO Chairman Kiran Kumar. “As we make it global, global users will be able to take advantage. Otherwise, now only regional users can take advantage of IRNSS”, he added. Source-1 Source-2 Source-3
