ATSC 3.0 broadcast signals can be used to dramatically improve the precision and accuracy of GPS navigation systems.
Using real time kinematic (RTK) data broadcasting via ATSC 3.0, the navigational accuracy can improve 100X, from about 3 meters to 3 centimeters. This exciting new datacasting solution has implications for many business applications including precision agriculture, construction, smart cities, autonomous vehicles, and drone deliveries.
This technology has already been deployed in Korea by a major broadcaster, MBC, and this session previews how it works and the opportunities it provides.
You can see it live for yourself in a drone delivery demonstration in booth SV1 located in the outdoor Silver Lot near the beer garden at NAB Show. Demos are scheduled for:
