Platform utilises revolutionary hybrid technology to deliver seamless indoor and outdoor location with accuracy of under 10 metres MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS, Barcelona, Spain – 25 February 2013 – CSR plc (LSE: CSR; NASDAQ: CSRE) this week demonstrates at Mobile World Congress the innovative CSR Location Services Platform featuring cutting-edge advancements such as ‘context detection’ and ‘self-learning’ to deliver a seamless indoor and outdoor location experience for consumers and enterprises alike. The platform delivers unprecedented indoor accuracy of under 10 metres.

To be showcased on the CSR booth [Hall 6, Stand 6D35] and at the popular Open Mobile Alliance Demo Day, CSR’s Location Services Platform offers a customisable, flexible infrastructure to enable a vast array of location-based services. The offering is based on the SiRFstarV™ architecture, an approach to location and navigation relying not only on GPS to determine position but also real-time information gathered from Galileo, GLONASS and Compass (a.k.a. BeiDou-2) satellites; multiple radio systems, such as Wi-Fi® and cellular; and multiple MEMS sensors, like accelerometers, gyroscopes and compasses. It then combines this data with ephemeris data, mapping, cellular basestation and Wi-Fi access point location data and other cloud-based aiding information using the accompanying SiRFusion™ platform.

“Since last year’s Mobile World Congress, the interest level and market momentum for a seamless indoor and outdoor location has exploded,” according to Anthony Murray, SVP Business Group of CSR. “Our hybrid approach to indoor and outdoor location provides the location basis for an increasingly wide array of use cases and deployments such as automotive safety, geo-fencing, asset management, and countless others.”

Live demonstrations of the CSR Location Platform take place on the show-floor in the CSR booth [Hall 6, Stand 6D35] and during the OMA Demo Day on Wednesday, 27 February, from 15:00 to 19:00 [Hall 8.0 Theatre District, Theatre C]; in addition, Dave Huntingford, Director of Product Line for Location at CSR, presents on ‘Indoor Location, Navigation and Services’ at 16:50 in the same OMA Open Day venue.
