Atmel and u-blox AG have just released SuperSense, a GPS weak signal tracking technology that supports Atmel's ANTARIS GPS chipsets and GPS modules from u-blox. The companies claim the software will allow for accurate GPS navigation inside buildings, in deep urban canyons, and in covered roads. The software also reduces the need for external antennas in car GPS systems, which can instead be mounted in glove compartments or under seats, while apparently still providing the same signal reception.
