GPS Application Around Us

Many students say they do not use the GPS. That is not the fact. GPS not only exist in the car navigation, we will also use GPS positioning technology in daily life to ensure that the products and applications we experience can provide users with a more intimate service.

Today we take a look at the products and applications around us. We will begin to notice the ignored GPS positioning function. Look ahead to find what kind of different experience these positioning technologies in the future can bring us.

In addition to built-in GPS hardware in the smartphone, in fact, there are some products with a built-in GPS hardware around us. Since it features built-in hardware, it will naturally provide some interesting features to the users. More people are familiar with the U.S. 3G version PSV portable game consoles, which has just been launched. Though GPS has been combined with portable products for a long time, the main stage is still focused on the navigation.

Built-in GPS hardware in consoles has been found longer before. As early as the PSP era, there is an external GPS hardware, but so far there are not many game main stream products, which take advantage of this feature. But SONY has just equipped PSV with NEAR, such a location-based social function.    Looking ahead in the future. In fact, you do not need to wait too long. Some phone gaming applications have started to use GPS technology to extend the outdoor game experience, which can be directly combined with games in the case of precise positioning. The majority of the game is mainly reflected in collection class game.

Some friends would say that I have never turned on the GPS function, but I can still use the normal positioning function. In fact, the mobile phone product positioning function come from two modes, one is a GPS satellite positioning, and the other is WiFi wireless network positioning technology based on GPS technology. The combination of these two can accelerate the positioning speed of the GPS hardware and indoor coarse positioning function.  Generally speaking, people using the smart phone will come into contact with the built-in hardware GPS    So the fact that we can see the Wi-Fi positioning technology on our phone even that we do not open the GPS positioning. When we turn off both, we will find that some location-based functionality can not be achieved.

WiFi positioning is based on the data of GPS positioning and the data is uploaded to the server. We can obtain a rough position based on the network in the case of no use of GPS. If these two conditions are not met, it is completely impossible to position (1.related-web hotspot is recorded on the server network 2.communication).    Looking forward to the future. With Wi-Fi positioning technology, the GPS satellite positioning has been upgraded and we are able to achieve the indoor positioning. But the indoor location we can get into contact with is still at only a coarse positioning stage. For the realization of outdoor real-time positioning, we also require the popularity of new products. At present, the multinational companies have launched similar products.

First, there are a lot of portable products based on the application of the LBS information services technology. Although we don’t pay too much attention during use, some applicable functions can not be realized without GPS positioning system.

For example, the main brand SNS PATH, a large part of the functions of which provide their own location to their friends and family. But if you do not turn on the GPS and WiFi wireless positioning technology, this feature will not be able to play role.    Looking forward to the future: Of course, with deepening application of the combination of positioning and SNS, we are able to find people of similar hobbies. We can find new friends in this way so as to solve the alienated interpersonal problem with the development of the Internet.

In addition to these, information of products we usually use are sent by proactively positioning information. That is to say when users in Beijing are, then they can automatically obtain information from Beijing. If travelers go to Shanghai, they can automatically obtain the information from Shanghai, without requiring the users to adjust manually.

Accurate releasing of Information are opportunities    However, targeted delivery technology does not only rely on precise positioning. The majority of we reach are advertising content on the site, such as Google AD use the IP to determine providing users with what kind of advertising messages. Though GPS positioning has high precision, in fact the information does not need so precise directional delivery.

Looking forward to the future. That one day we can stand on the street to be able to inquire the surrounding cinema of screenings tables, choosing the right movie you want to see. Then you will be navigated by the mobile phones and get to the destination. Starbucks delivery is an April Fool's joke, but the targeted delivery of information can indeed expand the potential opportunities for businesses. Customers do not need to come to the store before consumption.   

Although the future of GPS location-based applications can bring much convenience to our lives, we do not know for sure. The worthy point is that GPS positioning technology has been deeply in many applications such as entertainment, social networking, information, we can not ignore the convenience global positioning technology brings us. We are looking forward to the popularity of more civilian technology to our lives.
