Navigation technology is becoming a bigger part of everyday life. The days of navigation technology being solely designed and implemented for vehicles are gone, and personal navigation is at the forefront of this evolution. Airports, malls, and remote locations are all arenas where there is the evident need, but not necessarily the Wi-Fi or GPS signals that are required. Chris Goodall and the team at Trusted Positioning have designed a solution for this modern-day problem. Trusted Positioning launched in 2009, stemming from the work Mr. Goodall did for his PhD at the University of Calgary, along with professor Naser El-Sheimy, and his fellow PhD graduate Zainab Syed. At face value, Trusted Positioning is similar to other GPS and Bluetooth systems, however they are far superior in the implementation of micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS) sensor technology. The ability to integrate this mobile platform with any mobile phone is where Mr. Goodall wants to take the technology, and it has not gone unnoticed. Former chief financial officer and chief executive of NovAtel took notice and now sits on the company’s board, along with other high-profile veterans of the sector. Trusted Positioning is currently in talks with two major mobile phone manufacturers to bring this technology to consumers. Mr. Goodall told Derek Sankey how this technology will revolutionize mobile navigation and location positioning as the company shifts gears. The following is an edited transcript of their conversation.
