Qualcomm and Trimble Introduce Meter-Level Location Accuracy for Smartphones
Trimble RTX Technology to Work with Premium Snapdragon Mobile Platforms for Enhanced Smartphone Location-based Applications Including Lane-Level Navigation
Coupling the Trimble RTX technology with premium Snapdragon Mobile Platforms supercharges Android phones' positioning capabilities. This will enable smartphone manufacturers, service providers and application developers using Snapdragon to provide mobile users with robust meter-level accuracy (or about 3 feet) when used with a Trimble RTX-based correction service. This represents a 5x improvement in location accuracy compared to typical accuracy available today.
Location information accuracy can significantly improve the smartphone's user experience when using mapping, driving or other mobile applications. For example, with more accurate positioning for a ridesharing app, both driver and rider can have a better experience when the pick-up destination is more precisely displayed. In addition, lane-level accuracy enables drivers to gain greater map detail and more accurate directions when using real-time navigation applications.
This new collaboration expands
"Precise positioning, where accuracies are down to a meter or less, is a necessary capability in next-gen premium Android phones, providing better mapping, more accurate navigation and new exciting services to consumers," said
The Trimble RTX technology in Snapdragon 8 and Snapdragon 888 Mobile Platforms is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2022. Visit positioningservices.trimble.com/industries/telecom/mobility and www.qualcomm.com/snapdragon for more information.
