Vodafone tests new highly accurate location tracking technology

New satellite-based precision positioning tech used in conjunction with Vodafone's Internet of Things (IoT) platform promises to locate vehicles, drones and cargo to within a few centimetres.

In a test, Vodafone successfully tracked a vehicle to within 10cm of its location using its global IoT platform - which has more than 110 million connections worldwide - and Sapcorda's enhanced satellite navigation system. This is an improvement of more than three metres compared with current standard satellite-based systems.

Such pinpoint accuracy is critical to the acceptance and mass adoption of autonomous vehicles on roads, in factories, airports, dockyards and any other site where machines move, Vodafone believes.

Ensuring the safety of passengers on a driverless bus, for example, will require vehicles to know precisely where they and other vehicles are at any moment in time. And first responders will need to know the precise locations of medical delivery drones carrying supplies, such as blood.

Vodafone believes large businesses will greatly benefit from such enhanced location technology, whether it is used for precisely aligning driverless trains at platforms, for example, or tracking autonomous vehicles used in agriculture, aviation and fleet logistics.

Vodafone's IoT platform coupled with Sapcorda's comprehensive network of Global Navigation System Service (GNSS) receivers and augmentation technology, corrects inaccuracies caused by the curvature of the earth, the atmosphere, and clock differences of global positioning satellites, for example.

The improved location tech, combined with video and on-board diagnostics, will also enable vehicle operators to carry out accurate inspections remotely and pause machines such as grass cutters on public footpaths when they encounter people.

Vodafone's new Precise Positioning Service complements existing asset tracking and fleet telematics solutions that the company provides for its business customers across 54 countries.
