This year’s Mobile World Congress Los Angeles had most of the carriers and manufacturers in attendance—and many companies in the location ecosystem. However, because of the worldwide pandemic, attendance was down, said several executives.
Despite attendance issues, some companies used the event as a launching pad for products and services. Taoglas and u-blox [UBXN] displayed the COWBOY e-bike at MWC. The COWBOY is a connected electric bike, with GNSS capability, for urban riders. The bike uses Taoglas’ Accura GVLB258.A multi-band GNSS L1/L5 patch antenna in conjunction with u-blox’s SAM-M8Q GNSS positioning module.\
Taoglas also rolled out its EDGE Vision technology that helps OEMs and enterprises manage workflows to ensure process safety, quality, and reduced business costs with the help of machine vision AI technologies, the company said. The technology integrates cellular, GNSS and machine vision.
In other MWC news, Halo Collar with Cesar Millan premiered at the trade show in collaboration with KORE [KORE]. Founded by inventor Ken Ehrman and dog expert Cesar Millan (pictured above), Halo Collar is the only technology that automatically downloads daily satellite updates to improve GPS accuracy, the company said. The collar also lets owners create as many as 20 wireless fences.
