OneNav Smokes Leading Android Smartwatch in Tests

OneNav said it averaged six times better accuracy than “a leading Android smartwatch” in recent side-by-side test results that compared its pureL5 GNSS receiver customer evaluation system.

The company said it used only GNSS measurements in the tests, which were conducted in a “challenging urban environment,” while the smartwatch was augmented by inertial systems.  Both the oneNav unit and the smartwatch used commercial antennas during the testing.

“As we continue to fine-tune the pureL5 system, we’re excited to see the current version perform so well against a leading smartwatch in a challenging real world environment,” said  Steve Poizner, oneNav co-founder and CEO. “Ongoing tuning of our machine learning algorithms will improve our performance even further.”

Overall, the pureL5 reported 8-meter accuracy—compared to the smartwatch’s 29-meter score.  The accuracy led Poizner to say that the L5 signal is more accurate and reliable than L1 as it has wider bandwidth and better power.
