Researchers Developing More Precise Auto Navigation System

Steven Musil from CNET News reported on research being conducted at Spain’s Universidad Carlos III de Madrid that would improve accuracy of car GPS systems by using what researchers call “sensorial fusion” to reduce the margin of error from about 50 feet to about 6 feet.  The system “incorporates a conventional GPS signal with those of other sensors (accelerometers and gyroscopes) in order to reduce the margin of error in establishing a location,” according to a statement from the research team.
