New accurate GPS system developed at The University of Texas


It could allow unmanned aerial vehicles to deliver packages to a specific spot on a consumer’s back porch, enable collision avoidance technologies on cars and allow virtual reality (VR) headsets to be used outdoors. Technically, the team in the Radionavigation Lab have built a low-cost system that reduces location errors from the size of a large car to the size of a nickel , increasing a more than 100 times in accuracy. This level of accuracy could enhance VR environments that are based on real-world settings, as well as improve other applications, including visualization and 3-D mapping, making a significant difference in people’s daily lives in various possible applications.
