Pinpoint tracking for IoT assets
Talk to an IoT Expert

Home / Technologies / GNSS and GPS

Determining the precise location of assets without relying on cellular networks is business critical.

Using the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and the Global Positioning System (GPS), our IoT experts can help you trace and track the assets with pinpoint precision.

Our GPS hardware and solutions can be deployed to many environments. Common applications include remote asset tracking, wearables and autonomous vehicles.

Why GNSS and GPS?

GNSS and GPS work in tandem. The main difference is that GNSS-compatible equipment can use navigational satellites beyond the GPS system – increasing receiver accuracy and reliability.

GPS is invaluable to an IoT device because it can indicate location, altitude, speed, time, and direction. GNSS offer global coverage with support of GPS, GLONASS and QZSS.

Key advantages

  • Ubiquitous – global networks readily available and proven
  • Reliable service – positioning, navigation, and timing services always-on
  • Customisable – GPS data is easily integrated into broader IoT solutions

Key applications

M2M Connectivity has deployed short range connectivity solutions in a range of locations.

Example GNSS/GPS deployments, include:

  • Asset tracking (mining and agriculture) – from vehicles to people and machinery
  • Critical data relay (emergency services) – relaying critical location data in an emergency (people or assets)
  • Geofencing (warehousing) – creating GPS monitored boundaries to enhance asset security
