Hey Harry... Got a project if you're bored

Postby wdonovan » Tue Jun 28, 2016 5:53 pm

After seeing how versed you are in GPS software development I had an idea. There is a very popular series of TV documentaries in America every summer. It is Shark Week. It draws many viewers. If you convinced the scientists who research for these shows to tag a shark with a GPS and wrote a phone app to track the sharks, you would probably make like a billion Euros or maybe 2. People would break the internet trying to download an app where they could track their favorite sharks as they move about in the water. Hell there could even be betting involved lol.

Well, there might also be a problem receiving the GPS satellite signals and sending the data back through a hundred meters or so of water. That's why nuclear submarines use inertial guidance systems.
