In an opinion released earlier this spring, the Florida Fourth District Court of Appeal ruled against law enforcement use of data (including GPS-based data) from a car’s "event recorder" or "black box" without a warrant. The decision was just one of many in recent months that deals with the subject, as technology advances and privacy issues are clashing on a regular basis.By Inside GNSS
Swift Navigation and Carnegie Robotics (CRL) rolled out their first joint product, a real-time kinematic (RTK) GNSS receiver called Duro, at the AUVSI XPONENTIAL trade show in Dallas, Texas, May 8-11.
The companies say Duro is targeted to robotics, precision agriculture, mapping, military, outdoor industrial and maritime markets.By Inside GNSS

Trimble introduces the Trimble ABX-Two OEM GNSS sensor, designed to deliver precise heading, pitch, roll and 3D positioning information.
With two internal MB-Two modules, the ABX-Two offers a third antenna option that provides a drift-free, absolute attitude solution. The ABX-Two is well-suited for a wide variety of applications such as agriculture, automotive, aviation, construction and marine systems.
The announcement was made April 6 at Ocean Business 2017, an international event for ocean technology.By Inside GNSS
Speakers at the 9th Annual Conference on European Space Policy wasted no time in addressing the somewhat worrying failure of several Galileo onboard clocks, as revealed by European Space Agency Director General Johan-Dietrich Woerner at a press briefing earlier in January in Paris. He made clear at the time that the clock failures, while indeed troubling, had had no effect on the operational integrity of the Galileo system.By Peter Gutierrez
A partnership between Swift Navigation and Carnegie Robotics announced this week is expected to yield a line of navigation products for autonomous vehicles, outdoor robotics and machine control.
San Francisco-based Swift Navigation is a startup building centimeter-accurate GPS technology designed to power a world of autonomous vehicles, while Carnegie Robotics, located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, provides advanced robotics sensors and platforms for defense, agriculture, mining, infrastructure and energy applications.By Inside GNSS
Tallysman, a manufacturer of GNSS antennas and related products that designs and manufactures its products in Ottawa, Canada, announced the introduction of a through-hole mount dual band plus L-Band GNSS antenna: TW3892.
The introduction of this antenna is a continuation of Tallysman’s expansion into broader band GNSS antennas. It employs the company’s Accutenna technology.By Inside GNSS
This webinar has taken place. A recorded version is available now to those who register.
Farming is a complex business which involves managing variables such as weather, soil and crop inputs to ultimately maximize yield and minimize waste and cost. The webinar will explore how our planet’s future food needs will be met with the aid of agricultural robots, driverless tractors and UAS.By Inside GNSS
