The two organisations say they are looking for Australian businesses in the spatial industry interested in improving the capability of their positioning technology to take part in the trials and testing.
Businesses selected for the user testing will work closely with international positioning experts to trial technology that has not been widely tested in Australia before.
According to Geoscience Australia, improved positioning technology has the potential to enhance a range of applications for the spatial industry, including people movement and pedestrian navigation, geo marketing, sports and well-being tracking, gaming and mobile workforce management.
Geoscience Australia says the SBAS technology trial will potentially result in a number of safety, productivity, efficiency and environmental benefits for a range of different industries in Australia.
The project will be conducting user testing across nine different industries — agriculture, aviation, construction, maritime, rail, resources, road, spatial and utilities — and interested businesses can apply for the trial by completing an application form available from the CRCSI website.
