Trusted Positioning announced the launch of T-PN ME, the first navigation software to use motion sensor data from multiple mobile/wearable devices to more accurately locate a person indoors. The software collects movement information from the user's phone, tablet, watch, wearable or glasses simultaneously to better position how a person is walking or driving when GPS is unavailable in places such as shopping centres, airports or urban centres.

"Most phones, tablets and watches in production contain motion sensors," explains Chris Goodall, Trusted Positioning CEO, "By understanding how a person carries their phone along with how their smartwatch swings on their wrist we are given a clearer picture of how the user is moving as a whole; and therefore, their position in a building or driving through a tunnel."

The T-PN ME is the multi-device extension of the Trusted Portable Navigator (T-PN) product line. The T-PN is mobile embedded software for location both indoors and outdoors. Available for any operating system, this technology allows mobile users to navigate both outdoors and indoors, regardless of GPS availability.

With no additional hardware or infrastructure required, this navigation technology provides a location experience that is accurate, affordable and continuous in any environment. The T-PN was launched in August 2013 and can be expected to appear on new smartphones this year.
