The global positioning system (GPS) has been a silent but yet an important aspect of the modern technologies. The system has not only helped the hardware technology, it has also led to the making of the modern location identifying apps and software. The popular software making great use of the system is the Goggle map.
How did the GPS become such a great support to ? If it is true that all the technologies using make use of GPS for location and positioning, it indirectly means that such will have the installation of the GPS supported software or app available in smartphones. We can now imagine the silent nature of the GPS even when it is the brain behind the google map software and others with similar features.
Simulation democratization is not a new concept, though engineers tend to call it different names earlier before now. Anyone can interpret simulation democratization in another perspective, but generally all the definitions may be pointing in one direction which is to empower more people to take advantage of . The people expected to be part of their simulation and how they will achieve it remain a puzzling question in the field of .
GPS is playing a major role in the . It helps different aspects of technologies to be brought together for effective operations in satisfying human need. The science behind the GPS is a complex one according to an expert in the field.
The complexity of GPS remains the same despite the increasing inclusion of the system into the , its working principles and knowledge of how it works is yet to be studied by most users of it. From the conference on Advancing Analysis & simulation in (CAASE) held in this year in Ohio, the analogy brought up is that, deploying a GPS is not an easy feature. One must have the knowledge of wireless , Orbital mechanics, general relativity and whole lot more. Locating oneself with a GPS used to require just as much expertise in the form of specialized equipment and operators who knew how to use it.
“In the real sense, the principle or basic idea behind GPS has not changed or become a well-understood knowledge to many people using it today. However, what has changed in the system is who can make use of it and for what purpose. A system made to help in location identification has now become the brain behind many apps in smartphones making a that can be termed as an , a lot is yet to be said about the system than the little that engineers know about” expert said.
If goggle map in can tell you where you are and where ever you want to go, then it shows the evidence of the of the GPS in . The beneficiaries of GPS knows little about it except the apps making use of it. In the real sense some refer to the whole simulation as an aspect of technology.
Simulation democratization is an advancement to what is already happening. What if apps can have more complex to bring different systems together? We can imagine the Goggle map not just telling you about the location you specified but going further to reveal more details about the locations?
Simulation is a complex term when it comes to . What we simulate and how we do it and the results obtainable from it relies on the one carrying out the operation. We stand to benefit a lot from the technology that mere use of the term. In whatever way we define it, simulation is making technology that can appear to look like a particular to mimic its functions.
The takeoff and landing of an aircraft can be simulated in a software format and use to control another aircraft or machine. This means, that software for simulation can be used to make that can act like another .
“Democratization had been discussed as a strategy that can be undertaken by organizations, software vendors, and the industry at large. The strategy involves both the technological tools to enable democratization as well as the know-how and shift in attitude needed to advance it”.
Meanwhile according to Mark Zebrowski, a former simulation analyst at , “we are doing what is called democratization, but it was an outgrowth of process which was intended to improve the situation for experts and novice”.
