Industry’s first car radar detector and geographic information system based on Japan’s QZSS satellite service


QZSS can boost GPS accuracy especially in urban canyons such as TokyoThalwil, Switzerland - March 8, 2012 - u-blox, the Swiss positioning and wireless module and chip company, scored an industry first by providing advanced QZSS satellite positioning technology to Yupiteru, a Japanese manufacturer of telecommunications and car electronics for the Japanese market. Based on u-blox’ QZSS-enabled LEA-6H satellite receiver module, the GWR73SD radar detector with touchscreen provides enhanced positioning performance and radar detection, plus vehicle diagnostic capabilities.

“u-blox’ quick time to market with QZSS receiver technology allowed us to be the first on the market with a highly accurate, highly reliable positioning device that already capitalizes on the first QZSS satellite in service” said Mr. Atsushi Ishibashi, responsible for marketing at Yupiteru, “The GWR73SD is particularly attractive for drivers in urban environments in Japan where GPS satellites can be blocked by tall buildings.”

QZSS, or “Quasi-Zenith Satellite System”, is a new GPS augmentation system supporting Japan and Southeast Asia based on high-elevation, quasi-zenith  satellites. The system can boost GPS accuracy to below one meter, especially in urban canyons such as Tokyo as the satellites are geostationary in the sky directly overhead in Japan. The first QZSS satellite has been in service since 2011.

Performance of QZSS navigation systems will continue to improve as the 4 satellite configuration reaches completion in the late 2010s. The GWR73SD radar detector and geographic information system is based on  u-blox’ QZSS satellite receiver technology

Reston, VA and Fredonia, PA, USA - Feb. 7, 2012 - u-blox, the Swiss positioning and wireless chip and module company, has been chosen as the GPS technology provider for Grace Industries, a manufacturer of mission-critical personal safety devices. Grace’s latest intrinsically-safe personal tracker, the SuperCell® SC500-GPS, relies on u-blox 6 GPS technology to report critical location data of remote workers.

 

Text Box: The SuperCell® SC500-GPS is an intrinsically safe personal tracker ideal for workers in flammable environmentsSuperCell® SC500-GPS is a networked, motion-sensing, two-way emergency radio device with automatic “man-down” alarm. The device is used in critical safety applications where a worker’s location and safety status needs continuous monitoring. With its intrinsically safe, ignition-proof design, the device is of particular interest to the oil and gas industry, as well as railroad and trucking companies handling hazardous or highly flammable materials.

 

“After careful analysis and rigorous testing, Grace chose u-blox GPS because of its high performance, reliability, and quality”, said Bob Campman, Vice President at Grace. “SuperCell SC500-GPS provides the ultimate level of confidence for companies with mobile workers in remote or hazardous locations, where safety and location can be monitored simultaneously”.

 

“Grace’s selection of u-blox GPS technology is a testimonial to the superiority of our products”, said Nikolaos Papadopoulos, President of u-blox America. “With the SC500-GPS, tasks such as aircraft fuelling or gas pipeline repairs can now be performed safely while offering companies peace of mind and better insurance terms.”
