With the number of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS)-enabled devices continuing to increase, being able to find out where you are is often taken for granted. As new, low-power IoT devices start reaching the market at scale, alternative types of positioning technology are required to deliver on those expectations.
HERE Positioning can play a vital role in improving the GNSS performance and enabling global positioning on devices without the GNSS chipsets. With one of the broadest positioning technology portfolios in the world, HERE delivers fast, accurate and global positioning services for any device anywhere, indoors or outdoors, online or offline. These services help you make the most of where you are.
HERE Positioning Services:
Assistance Data : HERE Assistance Data increases accuracy, improves battery life, and reduces time-to-first-fix from minutes to seconds. In addition to leveraging HERE Network Positioning, we integrate dozens of satellites from multiple constellations to radically improve performance and to predict satellite positions up to 14 days in advance, on devices in an offline mode.
Network Positioning : HERE Network Positioning, available via a native Mobile SDK or as a REST API, can determine a device’s location simply by using cellular towers and Wi-Fi access points. This global database of Cell-IDs and Wi-Fi access points is available in an online or offline mode, which is perfect for devices that need to carefully manage battery or data usage.
Indoor Positioning : HERE Indoor Positioning, available through a Mobile SDK, provides accurate positioning inside buildings and determines which floor you are on. Coupled with HERE Venue Maps, Indoor Positioning can power engaging and compelling indoor applications for both consumer and enterprise use cases. HERE Indoor Positioning integrates seamlessly into other services of the Mobile SDK to provide a complete outdoor-to-indoor experience.
