Garin said the company ill share detailed inputs on the different technical requirements from the automotive GPS market to the pedestrian or last-mile GPS market.

Focus will also be on how GPS location and velocity authentication can facilitate new consumer services.
"If you listen to mass market analysts, it might appear as though GPS has become a commodity, where the only differentiation between solutions is cost, and power consumption - but that's not actually the case," said Lionel Garin, CTO for NemeriX.
"At CES, we'll examine why the navigation market requires a higher level of performance, and we'll discuss when the navigation capabilities that address indoor environments - such as shopping malls, and deep-indoor locations - will arrive to usher in wide market acceptance," Garin said.
