Let's hope it was a Bluetooth-equipped shark!

@Zeeglen.....I'm sure there's Australians who could do that too. doesn't have to be a tourist.  Of course the main question is why, with Australia's culture of workplace safety and finding someone else to blame for your own incompetence, there was no railing at the end of said pier to stop people doing just this.  I can see the pier owners getting sued for not properly undertaking their "duty of care" to dumb phone users.....

BTW, did it say what happened to the phone??

Just read a news item where a woman tourist in Australia was so busy texting she walked off the end of a pier and had to be rescued.  Guess she should have used an outdoor navigation app...

Of course in practical devices, the sensor fusion that occurs can include other reference points such as RF beacon sensing to reduce the drift when GPS is unavailable.

In the end I'd expect in the most successful devices the software will integrate all avalable data including GPS, RF, video and the onboard movement and orientation sensors.

Dead reckoning works anywhere, without beacons, say go get you to the indoor store at the mall, but once inside the story iBeacon could direct you to specific locations/shelf items.

What's the accuarcy? Would it be a competitor of iBeacon indoor navigation? Or it is a complement.

It's all in the details. Carry-context awareness is key, especially to avoid the erroneous reading of a 90 degree tilt. It's also important that this technology appears in a wide array of devices. The more pervasive, the more inherent to the user experience, the more indispensable in the long run.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
