Why GNSS for eMobility must balance Precision, Price, Power and Packaging

The Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) provides a well understood, widely deployed and accepted way to accurately determine precise location. It therefore underpins navigation, tracking and tracing of goods and assets and, with billions of GNSS devices already deployed, it has become pervasive. However, GNSS applications are not one-size-fits-all and organizations are challenged to find and deploy suitable solutions that meet the constraints of their applications.

In eMobility, which this paper focuses on, ride-sharing providers have to carefully balance accuracy, cost, the power demand and the dimensional footprint of a GNSS module to ensure they select the optimum solution. Often, GNSS alone is not enough to pinpoint the location of small eMobility vehicles such as eScooters so eMobility organizations typically augment GNSS with additional sensors and algorithms.
