Introducing 3D Location
Traditional location positioning utilizes latitude and longitudinal coordinates produced by the GPS in a smartphone or other portable device people carry with them. While this is useful with traditional navigation, how do you get real-time navigation or positioning when the location is on the 10th floor of a 30 floor high-rise?
SmartPressure barometric pressure sensors can differentiate the height of a single stair step. This provides precise Z-Axis location information enabling you to know exactly where you are in relative space, when combined with traditional GPS.

NextNav announced that the ICP-10111, is the first to achieve NextNav Certified status. The performance data produced by the NextNav Certified process provides independently verified data on sensor accuracy and gives hardware manufacturers guidelines for optimal integrations.
Over a six-week period, the ICP-10111 was subjected to a rigorous testing regimen jointly designed by InvenSense and NextNav engineers. Using real-world data sets from NextNav’s nationwide network of altitude stations, sensor components were tested against a variety of operational scenarios.
