G.P.S has always been a prolific mobile application to make users aware of unknown locations and to guide in reaching new destinations with an ease.Apple has finally got registered an authentic technical innovation which will enable extra accuracy in indoor spot mapping and place detection. The technology is creating ripples all over the world as it does not require G.P.S support and has its own mechanism.It means that the GPS signal jammer cannot deal with it.

Apple was awarded a patent for a technology that should allow for much more accurate indoor location detection and mapping, even in the absence of GPS. Almost every smart mobile phone makes use of G.P.S for navigation and location mapping.The new patent, which was picked up by Apple Insider, uses a combination of Wi-Fi access points, location databases and other data to determine proximity to what the patent called “presence areas.” It then analyzes various data such as Wi-Fi signal strength and building architecture to determine a more precise location.

GPS often fails to provide accurate location data for when your are indoors, so this patent could help alleviate that problem.

Apple has also shown interest in improved indoor mapping in the past. With iOS 7, it added support for iBeacons, which use Bluetooth LE to accurately determine location.

. Apple’s new technique is an aggregation of on board location data basis and Wi-Fi access points to attain a stupendous accuracy in outdoor as well as indoor localities. The system incorporates a long series of factors with the major inclusions like ‘presence area’ which is commonly known as hardware communication range and filtering of access points. The technology allows many smart non-G.P.S gadgets to easily tracking locations with an amazing precision.A wireless jammer can interfere with WiFi signals which can influence to it.

Apple has also made a couple of acquisitions related to indoor mapping. In March 2013, it acquired WiFiSLAM for $20 million, which uses technology that sounds similar to this new Apple patent in order to determine location using Wi-Fi signals.

The Philippines Plans to Install Jammers in Jail to Stop illegal Drug Trade.

CEBU, Philippines - A special electronic gadget that will block cellphone signals will be installed soon inside the Cebu City Jail in Barangay Kalunasan to suppress illegal drug trade inside the facility.

Cebu City incoming Mayor Tomas Osmeña announced yesterday that he will help acquire a cell phone jammer for the City Jail to stop the illegal activities of some unscrupulous inmates who continue to operate their illegal drug business outside by using communication gadgets like cellphone.

City Jail warden Johnson Calub supports Osmeña’s move, saying that the issue has already been discussed by the officials of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) in Manila.

The plan, however, was not implemented due to budgetary constraint.

While the jail manual strictly prohibits communication equipment inside the detention facilities, some inmates managed to secure cellphones because some corrupt jail guards allowed them to possess in exchange for money.

The jammer will block transmission signals. Telecommunication experts said that a sophisticated device can block all frequencies at once. The biggest cellphone jammers used by police and the military can be mounted in vehicles for security convoy.

Osmeña said he already talked to some trusted men of president-elect Rodrigo Duterte and discussed about how to come up with an effective campaign against the operations of drug lords and drug traffickers.

During the past greyhound operations, several cellphones were found inside the jail.

Calub said the range of high-end and expensive jamming devices can be adjusted so as not to affect other cellphone subscribers within the vicinity.

 

The Possible illegal use of GPS jammer

Criminal gangs have begun to use GPS "jammers" from China to help them steal expensive cars and cargo, and fear that terrorists can use a more powerful version to destroy air traffic, a meeting in London on Tuesday will hear The

The GPS jammer transmits a radio signal at the same frequency on a global positioning system (GPS) satellite, overwhelming the timing signal used by the vehicle to draw its position. This means that a vehicle with a valuable load, or a car with an anti-theft GPS device, if stolen, should report its location and can not distinguish the correct GPS signal.

Some German drivers are also considered to use such jammers to try to escape the GPS-based road charges, which was introduced in 2005. There are also robberies in Russia, which have been used on trucks for GPS systems and mobile phones to prevent drivers from communicating with the authorities.

In Germany, such as in the UK, the sale or use of such jammers is illegal, although imports or possession of these disturbances seem to be legal.

Satnav equipment relies on at least four satellites of 30 satellites that can "see" orbit 20,200 km (12,550 miles) above the Earth: the terrestrial equipment can be calculated by correlating the very precise timing and identification signals they transmit Own position in about 1 meter. However, the interfering device does not have to release a strong signal to disrupt GPS reception.

"The problem is that the signal of the satellite is very weak - this is equivalent to picking up the light output of the 25-watt bulb on the satellite," said Bob Cockshott, another spokesperson. The Technical Strategy Committee, which consists of business, innovation and skills Ministry of Finance.

"This means that you only need an output of about 2 watts of interference signal, you can from the GPS satellite on any signal to a few meters of the place. Such a device than the ground on the GPS signal powerful times.

Cockshott said such a more powerful disruptor could be used for a variety of criminal gangs. "They will work dozens of kilometers, so drug gangs may use them to disrupt the sailing of the Thames, if they are delivering, and do not want their opponents to track them."
