Findings on Evolutionary Computation Detailed by Researchers at University of Science and Technology

May 20, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Investigators publish new report on Evolutionary Computation. According to news reporting out of Jhongli, Taiwan, by NewsRx editors, the research stated, "More and more devices are equipped with global positioning system (GPS). However, those handheld devices with consumer-grade GPS receivers usually have low accuracy in positioning."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Science and Technology, "A position correction algorithm is therefore useful in this case. In this paper, we proposed an evolutionary computation based technique to generate a correction function by two GPS receivers and a known reference location. Locating one GPS receiver on the known location and combining its longitude and latitude information and exact poisoning information, the proposed technique is capable of evolving a correction function by such. The proposed technique can be implemented and executed on handheld devices without hardware reconfiguration. Experiments are conducted to demonstrate performance of the proposed technique."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Positioning error could be significantly reduced from the order of 10?m to the order of 1?m."
