SimpleLink™ GPS CC4000
GPS - connectivityfor location, time and velocity
Making GPS application development simple, easy and low cost.
Where is GPS being used?
GPS - a space-based satellite system is used to provide not only location, but also highly accurate timing and velocity data. Several application areas emerged outside of the traditional personal navigation devices, including asset tracking, theft protection, industrial automation and sports and fitness.
