Vismo awarded patent for GPS tracking technology

February 25th 2016. York, UK. Vismo, the Global Tracking Solutions specialist, has been awarded a patent for its technology for GPS tracking on mobile devices. The company previously had a patent pending and has now secured a full patent for its unique operation.

The awarded patent, GB2470376, specifically covers the design behind the algorithms and innovative operations of the Vismo tracking software to optimise location accuracy with minimal battery drain.

The algorithms use a combination of metrics from the phone such as speed, GPS, network information and cell tower locations to determine optimal accuracy for locations from the device, without incurring the large battery drain usually typical of GPS tracking applications.

Fundamental to the approach is how Vismo utilizes the functionality of mobile devices, minimising the use of navigational sensors by placing them into hibernation between pre-determined intervals and using environmental information to quickly locate a device without lengthy GPS warm-up periods. Ultimately, this produces a chronological “trail” following a user’s location point-by-point on a map.

Colin Dale, Business Development Director at Vismo says, “We have always prided ourselves on the unique operation of our app and we are delighted to be recognised as owning the technology. One of our key USPs is maintaining such comprehensive and accurate international tracking while stretching battery life as much as possible.”

Vismo is available across all major mobile platforms including iOS, Android and Windows. For more information visit
