News: TomTom Second Quarter 2017 Results - 160m Euro loss

pocketgpsworld.com
TomTom announced their Q2 2017 results this week. The headline figure, a loss of 160m, compared to a profit of 12m in the same period last year and total revenue of 253m (down from 265m in Q2 2016).

TomTom blame disappointing sales in their sports division for lower hardware revenues with the wearables market falling short of expectations. Automotive and licensing revenues are up (80.7m versus 68m).

The full year outlook is still expected to be within forecast albeit at the lower end of the range. They also announced an intention repurchase ordinary TomTom shares for an amount up to 50 million, representing 2.5% of total issued share capital. The share repurchase is to be used to cover their commitments arising from stock option and share plans.

Unsurprisingly, TomTom state they now want to focus on their automotive, licensing and telematics business which is returning a profit. TomTom are well placed to capitalise on the future migration towards self-driving autonomous vehicles and that market is set to grow sharply as vehicle manufacturers race to incorporate self-driving technology, all of which requires high quality map data.

News: Celebrating 40 Years Since the First GPS Signal Was Received

pocketgpsworld.com
1977. The year that punk broke. Also on this day in 1977 (19th July) the first GPS signal was received and decoded in Iowa USA. David Van Dusseldorp was working for Rockwell Collins using the 6ft tall receive in the picture above. They subsequently won the contract from the US Airforce to run the NAVSTAR (GPS) user equipment service.

In 40 years the technology has clearly got a lot smaller and it's amazing to see just how much the technology has advanced!

A sat nav has directed an African Zulu Warrior tribe 200 miles out of their way following a wrong input.

They had the correct address on their paperwork, but the incorrect postcode.

A nine-strong dance troupe arrived at a school to give a cultural performance, but realised they should have been at St Anne's in London, not St Anne's, a special needs school, in Yorkshire.

News: ESA has identified problem causing Galileo clocks to fail

pocketgpsworld.com
Earlier this year it was reported that atomic clocks, the backbone of navigation signals on the Galileo satellites, were failing at an alarming rate. Of the 18 satellites in operation, nine clocks had failed.

Each Galileo satellite has four clocks, two are traditional rubidium and two are more precise hydrogen maser instruments intended to give Galileo superior performance. Of the nine failures, three were rubidium and six hydrogen maser, one satellite having suffered a failure of two clocks. Although a satellite only needs one working clock to be operational the failures were deeply concerning and the cause needed to be found.

The European Commission said on Monday that investigators had now identified the cause, a faulty component could cause a short circuit, and deployed measures to reduce the possibility of further malfunctions. The component will be replaced on satellites currently in production.

News: TomTom and Cisco Join Forces for New Live Traffic Service

pocketgpsworld.com
TomTom have today announced a partnership with Cisco to develop a new traffic service for the future of driving. With autonomous cars getting closer to a reality there is a greater need for more accurate traffic data as close to real-time as possible. Drivers, cars and local authorities can all benefit from this data that can work across multiple lanes.

Cisco will be using their 'Internet of Things' platform to support TomTom's driver data expertise. Instead of using more expensive induction loops for traffic monitoring, the partnership will be using fibre-optic cables that are converted into microphones using a technology known as Distributed Acoustic Sensing.
