HERE Technologies and MediaTek announced a collaboration to enable the HERE Network Positioning solution on select MediaTek chipsets. “Network positioning is a crucial component of the connected experience and HERE’s database improves positioning accuracy significantly.” said YuChuan Yang, Deputy General Manager of Internet of Things Business Unit, MediaTek. HERE Network Positioning employs proprietary technology to determine a device’s location rapidly and accurately based on mobile network and Wi-Fi signals. As part of this collaboration, MediaTek offers to device manufacturers a 4-in-1 combo solution based on the MediaTek MT2503 product family, a highly integrated ARM-based SiP design that contains Bluetooth, multiple GNSS receivers and an integrated 2G modem. 3G Electronics, a China-based IoT customer of MediaTek, introduced a children’s smartwatch series called KidsWatch, which is powered by MediaTek chipsets featuring HERE’s Network Positioning solution in products sold outside China.
