Nobody really knows how effective GNSS-aided tracking is in the monitoring of criminals released early from prison, but there is a burgeoning market for this type of GPS tracking, according to a recent study sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ). Although GNSS-aided tracking has been poo-poohed by rights activists as interfering with citizens’ civil rights, it is thought to be valuable to the whole of society to be able to track those such as high-risk sex offenders as well as parolees. In California alone, that number of parolees numbers over 100,000.

Having identified enormous developmental potential in the trending topic of connected vehicles, Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) is looking for forward-thinking prototypes in the 2012 European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC). Eight finalists will be invited to the institute’s research campus in Taiwan to present their pilot projects. The winner and finalists will receive cash prizes ranging from EUR 1,000 to EUR 10,000.   

Intelligent cars made possible by modern navigation and communication technologies are a popular topic with automotive manufacturers and customers alike. Automated parking functions and systems that warn drivers of braking vehicles and sharp curves are just the beginning. Following its major success in 2011, ITRI is offering a prototyping prize in the field of connected vehicles for the second time in this year’s ESNC. The institute’s stated objective – “Connect Autos Tightly to ICT from V2X” – reflects its search for innovative solutions that combine modern satellite navigation and smart vehicle communication technologies.
