Trusted Positioning has released the Trusted Portable Navigator (T-PN) indoor location software. Available for any operating system, this mobile embedded software allows mobile users to navigate shopping centers, airports, and subway stations. No additional hardware or infrastructure required.
The T-PN combines the use of existing smartphone motion sensors with wireless updates (such as Wi-Fi and GNSS) for a complete solution with no extra hardware or infrastructure needed.
T-PN needs no additional infrastructure: This enables a consumer to navigate through an environment with no existing navigation technology. T-PN integrates with existing sensors such as Wi-Fi and GPS when available and utilizes significantly less power than either GPS or Wi-Fi positioning. The company reports that accurate positioning can be maintained while the phone is swinging in a hand, a call is answered, the phone is in a pocket or purse, or the consumer is texting.
