FPS Navigation to See Technological Improvements

QCRI and MIT joined hands to improve navigation through Global Positioning System or GPS. And, they dabbled with images from satellite to invent new model for the same. Basically, they tag features on the road, making maps more detailed, improving navigation. Understanding the Model Details help navigate unfamiliar areas better. Plus, they provide better warning […]
