Wi-LAN Research Revolutionizes Geolocation with NTN-Based System

Wi-LAN Research is taking geolocation to the next level with its Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) based Non-Terrestrial Network (NTN). This system is designed to provide accurate geolocation of a wireless communication device in advanced communication systems, such as 5G and 6G, and in industry 4.0. With this new technology, Wi-LAN Research promises to revolutionize the way we track the location of people, objects, and shipments around the world. Tracking location is an essential part of many businesses, especially when it comes to shipping items. Accurate geolocation can help companies deliver shipments more efficiently and reduce the risk of items getting lost. With the help of Wi-LAN Research’s NTN-based system, this could soon become a reality. The NTN-based system utilizes time signals from satellites and the thing being tracked to accurately calculate its position. This will enable companies to track shipments with precision and cut down on losses due to inaccurate location data. This technology could also be used for tracking people and objects, providing an added layer of security for businesses, individuals, and governments. In addition to tracking people and objects, the NTN-based system could be used for a variety of applications. For example, it could be used for navigation, helping people to find their way in unfamiliar locations. It could also be used to track wildlife, giving researchers invaluable data about the movements of animals. And it could even be used to monitor traffic patterns, helping cities to reduce congestion and improve road safety. The possibilities for this technology are virtually limitless. Wi-LAN Research’s NTN-based system could revolutionize the way we think about geolocation and provide businesses with an invaluable tool for tracking people, objects, and shipments. However, it’s important to note that this is still a patent and there is no guarantee that the technology will ever be implemented in the real world. Wi-LAN Research has developed a system that could revolutionize the way we think about geolocation. With the help of their NTN-based system, companies could soon be able to track people, objects, and shipments with accuracy and precision. There is still no guarantee that this system will make it to the market, but if it does, it could be a game changer for businesses and individuals alike. All we can do is wait and see what the future holds for Wi-LAN Research’s NTN-based system and US20230213665A1.
