Smart City Precision Timing

Wednesday | 11:10 - 11:30 am

  • Joe Neil - Technical Specialist, Microchip Technology

This talk will address PNT (position, navigation, and time) services needed in the Smart City, with a particular concentration on the precision timing needs. The focus will be on autonomous vehicles in the Smart City, and how infrastructure could be adapted to provide the needed precision timing. Autonomous vehicles need to know where they are, know how fast they are moving, and know what direction they are moving with precision, hence the requirement for precision timing. The system providing PNT and precision timing is also required to be resilient to ensure security and public safety, which will also be addressed in this talk.
