News: Here is Your Chance to Trial a Self-Driving Car

...if you live in Phoenix, Arizona (United States). Google's self-driving car project (now rebranded as Waymo) is opening up hundreds of self-driving cars to residents of Phoenix after numerous regulations have slowed down trials in California.

"Over the course of this trial, we’ll be accepting hundreds of people with diverse backgrounds and transportation needs who want to ride in and give feedback about Waymo’s self-driving cars. Rather than offering people one or two rides, the goal of this program is to give participants access to our fleet every day, at any time, to go anywhere within an area that’s about twice the size of San Francisco."

So if you live in Phoenix then take a look at their website for details of how to apply: Apply to be part of Waymo’s early rider program.

News: EGNOS enables first satnav landing of passenger aircraft

pocketgpsworld.com
A passenger aircraft has made the first precision approach procedure guided only by satellite navigation thanks to EGNOS (European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service) at Bremen airport in Germany.

EGNOS is a satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) that enhances the positional accuracy of GPS and provides an alternative to the conventional ILS (Instrument Landing System) used by aircraft currently.

EGNOS permits landings to be attempted in CAT I visibility conditions and guides the pilot down to 60 metres above the ground before the pilot must make a visual sighting of the runway and confirm it is safe to land.

EGNOS offers a number of advantages, it offers an increase in precision over ILS and does not require the ground infrastructure that ILS needs, reducing costs for airport operators. Aircraft wishing to use this system require EGNOS receivers in the cockpit.
