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.
