Lynq – The Tracking Device that Requires No Connectivity and Works Without CellPhone

Have you ever been to a concert with no way to find the friends you were supposed to meet, seems like things could not get worse but there is no signal and Google map is not working (even when it does, it won’t pinpoint where they are)? Yes, I know a lot of people can relate to this situation. It might not have been at a concert, could have been in a conference, during hiking, cycling events or a beach part ...

2018 WILL MARK A MILESTONE IN GPS TECHNOLOGY WITH 30-CENTIMETER ACCURACY

You’re in a crowded street with many high buildings around you and you find your car position on Google maps is wrong. That’s usual, right? This is caused from (fake/distorted) GPS signals reflected from the high buildings around you which make your GPS receiver do some wrong calculations. Even with no wrong calculations, the current GPS accuracy is about 5 meters, but this is going to change in next year 2 ...

Novel Cloud-based Tag System

We have already seen a number of ideas for tracking tags seeking funds on Kickstarter, most systems are limited by the range of Bluetooth communication with a smart device. This system from Iotera tackles the problem using cloud-based thinking:  The basic wireless system consists of one or more tags or ‘iotas’ and a home base unit. Each 22 x 11 x 3 mm iota contains a GPS chip, accelerometer, temperature sen ...
