arknav-ctiaWe continue our series of industry Q & As that we are running alongside our visit to CTIA 2009, Las Vegas with a short interview with Richard Tijsen, President of ARKNAV.

ARKNAV, formerly known as Stars Navigation, manufacturers GPS peripherals such as antennas and data loggers/locators and integrated tracking solutions including location based services (LBS) and personal tracking systems.

Las Vegas is a long way to travel from Taiwan - I asked Richard why Taipei based ARKNAV were exhibiting at CTIA.

He said that they are mainly promoting their GPS tracking systems and a new product, G Force Sensor, a vehicle tracker which records vehicle impact. Its aims is to reduce fleet vehicle maintenance and costs by recording 3D G-force values, corresponding GPS data and monitoring the driver's driving habits. The G-Force Recorder is a small box used as an extension to the GPS tracker. GPS data and acceleration values are stored on an SD card and each entry given a timestamp.

He added that they sell their products worldwide and are looking to meet global distributors at the show. They supply to both system integrators and service providers.

I asked Richard when he thought that all mobile devices would carry GPS technology. He thought that before this happened there were still problems to overcome with integration such as battery issues.

When asked about the future of the industry in relation to ARKNAV, Richard replied, "The market is still booming. We see the potential for more demand. Our products target niche markets with specially designed functions and features. There will always be demand for high performance and stable systems."
