(Yicai Global) March 2 -- A Chinese lab said it has developed a Beidou chip with a precision level at meters. The chip can find wider use in China's Beidou Navigation Satellite System, which is similar to US Global Positioning System (GPS)
Wanglian Communications United Lab unveiled in Beijing on March 28 a Beidou chip which is to be used by cars and has positioning precision level at meters, Xinhua News Agency reported. With the new chip, it will take just three seconds to achieve quick positioning, which means Chinese cars will enter an era of meter-grade navigation.
The meter-grade Beidou chip, which can help achieve quick positioning, can satisfy the needs of in-vehicle smart network terminals such as navigators, recorders, monitors and gateways, said Li Xueli, publisher of Wanglian Communications United Lab's products.
China's Beidou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) is a global satellite navigation system developed by China. It is the third satellite navigation system developed after the US Global Positioning System (GPS) and Russia's GLONASS satellite navigation system.
