Location, principally provided by GPS/GNSS, plays a key role alongside deployment of 5G cellular networks, in the realization of the internet of things (IoT).

A free webinar hosted by GPS World on May 17 will cover how location plays a role in the internet of things. The webinar will include presentations by Fergus Noble, co-founder and CTO of Swift Navigation; Oliver Cameron, co-founder and CEO of Voyage; and Steve Thompson, senior director and office of the CTO of Acorn Technologies.

During his presentation, Noble will highlight the benefits of integrating a cloud corrections service with high-precision GNSS receivers. He also will provide an understanding for users of GPS about how high-precision GNSS receivers benefit from a cloud corrections service, including high-precision results in seconds and increased geographic range.

Cameron will cover why private cities make for the perfect first deployments of self-driving cars and Thompson will offer an overview on cellular positioning technology for ultra-low-cost, ultra-long-battery-life IoT applications.

Register and learn more about the webinar, which takes place at 1 p.m., here.
