Motorola Selects u-blox GPS for New York Fire Department (FDNY)
Thursday July 13, 6:26 am ET
HERNDON, Virginia and THALWIL, Switerland, July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- u-blox America announced today that Motorola Inc. will be using its technology in life-saving vehicle tracking systems deployed by the New York and Chicago fire departments.

Motorola will incorporate u-blox' ANTARIS® GPS receiver in its MDR800 model F5127 vehicle tracking system. The receiver has integrated dead-reckoning functionality that, with the help of additional sensors, provides accurate vehicle location information, even in tunnels and underground parking garages.

"One of the things the FDNY learned during the crisis of 9/11 is the importance of coordinating emergency vehicles without delay", says Asa Yanai, Motorola's Project Manager. "With the implementation of the MDR900 with u-blox technology, response time to 911 calls has been shortened by 3 minutes according to New York City officials."
