News: Qualcomm announces connected car reference platform

pocketgpsworld.com
CES 2017: Qualcomm has announced a new variant of its connected car reference platform. Powered by their Gigabit class Snapdragon X16 LTE modem, the new reference platform is intended to assist manufacturers in integrating the high-speed connectivity required for future vehicles.

The Snapdragon X16 can support peak download speeds of 1 Gbps and provides 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 and SiRFstarV GPS which can track GPS, GLONASS, BDU (formely Compass/BeiDou) and Galileo.

With connected cars incorporating more and more sensors as the move towards semi-autonomous and fully autonomous driving marches on, connectivity is quickly moving from a "nice to have" to a "must have". Traditionally car manufacturers have been slow to adopt new technologies so reference designs that can be easily plugged in and reduce design lead times are becoming the preferred route.

News: Galileo Goes Live Today

pocketgpsworld.com
The delayed Galileo satellite system goes live today and starts a new era for the European Space Agency. Starting in 1999 it has taken 17 years to reach this point and the costs have soared from the initial estimates.

However, costs and delays aside, the system is operational from today (although it will not be fully operational for another 4 years once the final satellites are in place). The European system removes the reliance on the American Navstar ("GPS") system and offers various benefits. Accuracy of 1m will be available for all users as well as a unique method that allows distress calls to be placed and the location found within 10 minutes.

A number of smartphones using Snapdragon 820, 652, 650, 625, 617 and 435 chipsets will already work with Galileo after a software update. All in-car navigation in new European cars will also be able to access Galileo's positioning system.
