A building’s infrastructure, such as concrete walls and floors and steel support beams often interferes with or blocks wireless signals, which makes determining location with any consistent level of accuracy difficult. Two new methodologies within the direction finding feature are helping to mitigate these losses and overcome the complexity, improving location capabilities: Angle of Arrival (AoA) and Angle of Departure (AoD). These two location system architectures utilize angular direction estimation to determine positioning. </div> </div> Thu, 30 May 2019 14:01:58 +0000 Larry O'Brien 84276 at https://www.arcweb.com Dynamic Pricing of Parking Helps Cities, Residents, and Business https://www.arcweb.com/blog/dynamic-pricing-parking-helps-cities-residents-business <span class="field-wrapper">Dynamic Pricing of Parking Helps Cities, Residents, and Business</span> <span class="field-wrapper"><span lang="" about="/user/646" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Steve Clouther</span></span> <span class="field-wrapper">Tue, 04/30/2019 - 15:32</span> <ul class="links inline"><li class="node-readmore"><a href="/blog/dynamic-pricing-parking-helps-cities-residents-business" rel="tag" title="Dynamic Pricing of Parking Helps Cities, Residents, and Business" hreflang="en">Read more<span class="visually-hidden"> about Dynamic Pricing of Parking Helps Cities, Residents, and Business</span></a></li><li class="comment-forbidden"><a href="/user/login?destination=/blog/dynamic-pricing-parking-helps-cities-residents-business%23comment-form">Log in</a> to post comments</li></ul> <div class="body text-secondary field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> A city’s parking ecosystem is an important part of this puzzle, and leaders are realizing they can use smart parking platforms to improve this key aspect of city life, especially if they use the new platform to introduce policies for dynamic pricing of parking resources. </div> </div> Tue, 30 Apr 2019 19:32:11 +0000 Steve Clouther 83201 at https://www.arcweb.com Electric Mining Vehicles Hold Promise for Industry https://www.arcweb.com/blog/electric-mining-vehicles-hold-promise-industry <span class="field-wrapper">Electric Mining Vehicles Hold Promise for Industry</span> <span class="field-wrapper"><span lang="" about="/user/646" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Steve Clouther</span></span> <span class="field-wrapper">Mon, 04/29/2019 - 11:12</span> <ul class="links inline"><li class="node-readmore"><a href="/blog/electric-mining-vehicles-hold-promise-industry" rel="tag" title="Electric Mining Vehicles Hold Promise for Industry" hreflang="en">Read more<span class="visually-hidden"> about Electric Mining Vehicles Hold Promise for Industry</span></a></li><li class="comment-forbidden"><a href="/user/login?destination=/blog/electric-mining-vehicles-hold-promise-industry%23comment-form">Log in</a> to post comments</li></ul> <div class="body text-secondary field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> Electrification is one of the most significant trends in transport today.
