Global Locate Gets GPS IP
More IP covering GPS and mobile devices.
Privately held Global Locate, Inc., a global leader in assisted-GPS (A-GPS) products and services, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued patent number USP 6,453,237 entitled "Method and Apparatus for Locating and Providing Services to Mobile Devices."
The company described the patent as covering the concept of a network of reference stations sending data to a server, which in turn creates a wide area model from which geographically specific GPS assistance data is derived and sent to mobile terminals.
It's interesting to see who owns what IP for the GPS and the applications for mobile devices.
