Currently smartphone navigation can only achieve accuracies of 5 m at best – this won’t be the case for much longer. The FLAMINGO initiative, part sponsored by the European GNSS Agency, is introducing technology to Android developers to permit positioning accuracy of 1m or better, the baseline performance for future smartphone navigation. This is made possible because of the use of multi-constellation GNSS (GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, Beidou), and in some cases multi-frequency, chipsets within the latest smartphones. Joshua will share with you how to engage, develop and use FLAMINGO in smartphone apps to begin harnessing the future of navigation. The interface similarities and differences between the FLAMINGO API and Google’s existing location API, will be discussed and demonstrated. Joshua will finish by explaining how high accuracy positioning will dynamically change the smartphone application landscape, including app markets such as AR, street navigation and professional tools and provide a mock-up demonstration.
