Looks like it happened again today and this time on greater scale: GPS navigation in the center of Moscow "failed". News reported it as "failure" but in fact it was clearly spoofed as devices were not just losing signal but finding themselves in the middle of airport. This makes it especially fun for taxi passengers as some taxi apps use GPS to calculate fares and can bill them for airport fare.

Looks like it happened again today and this time on greater scale: GPS navigation in the center of Moscow "failed". News reported it as "failure" but in fact it was clearly spoofed as devices were not just losing signal but finding themselves in the middle of airport. This makes it especially fun for taxi passengers as some taxi apps use GPS to calculate fares and can bill them for airport fare.

This was happening from time to time for a while now. The reason, although never officially acknowledged, is simple - Mr. Putin is shy of drones and someone in his security thinks it is a grand idea to spoof GPS with airport coordinates so drones find themselves in "no fly zone" and refuse to operate. Because obviously terrorists and CIA fly Mavic drones with stock firmware.

What can I say. This shit is sad because it is so stupid.

(#GNOME) #Maps is an easy to use #OpenStreetMap renderer and navigator for desktop.

Maps uses the increasingly popular OpenStreetMap (https://www.openstreetmap.org/) to provide an accurate world map of roads, streets, and even shops.

Maps is as simple as any other map navigator program, and can navigate with way points and use #GPS.

Once made, the route can be printed so it can be traveled later.

RCA postgraduates create open navigation system inspired by insect eyes



A team of student designers and engineers from the RCA and Imperial College have designed an open-source alternative to GPS, called Aweigh, that does not rely on satellites.

Instead, the device calculates a user's position using the sun – a feature inspired by the polarised vision of insects.

Its student makers said that the design is similar to that of the sextant, one of the oldest known navigating tools that measures the angular distance between two visible objects, in this case the horizon and the sun.

They said that Aweigh can even work on a cloudy day when the sun is not in view, and unlike devices that use satellites, such as smartphones, Aweigh functions offline so a user's positional data cannot be leaked through the internet.

Die Schweizerischen Bundesbahnen ziehen eine positive Zwischenbilanz für ihr zusammen mit dem Berner Privatunternehmen Fairtiq entwickeltes "Preview" der Fahrkartenapp EasyRide. Eine Entscheidung, ob man sich nach dem Testende im Dezember 2019 für die reguläre Einführung des Systems entscheidet, ist aber noch nicht gefallen, wie ein SBB-Sprecher gestern auf Anfrage von Telepolis erklärte.

Diese für Android und iOS verfügbare Anwendung rechnet anhand der GPS-Daten, die die Mobiltelefone ihrer Nutzer liefern, automatisch Fahrpreise ab. Damit sie funktioniert, muss sich ein Nutzer ein SwissPass-Login holen und angeben, ob er mit Visa, MasterCard), PostFinance Card, Swisscom Easypay, Twint oder Reka zahlen will. Dann kann er sich den SBB nach auf andere Sachen als Zonen und Tarife konzentrieren, weil die App für ihn angeblich immer den günstigsten Preis berechnet: "Übersteigt beispielsweise der Wert der gefahrenen Strecke an einem Tag den Preis einer Tageskarte", heißt es, dann "wird dem Kunden nachträglich der güns... show more
