Posted By: Sam Roberts,AFLF chief executiveAFL chief executive, Andrew Demetriou, has been asked by the ABC if it would be fair to call his gps a GPS device and said it would not be.”GPS technology, in its current form, is not capable of providing a complete and accurate view of a person’s location,” Demetrianou said.
“If you’re driving, you may not know exactly where you are.
It’s something that we’ve been working on and there’s lots of other ways that we’re going to try and improve it.”GPS devices are a technology that allows a GPS receiver to measure a person or object’s position, which then allows the receiver to automatically set the GPS on a map, or to be able to automatically turn on GPS navigation when it detects the car is driving on a road with a road sign, for example.
Demetrianos comments came after the ABC reported the ABC’s investigation had found the ABC had not properly accounted for the use of GPS tracking devices.
The ABC also revealed that it had also investigated claims that the use and misuse of gps devices by police was increasing.
Demets comments follow a recent report from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, which found the use in Australia had grown from 9 per cent in 2014 to 18 per cent by 2019.
It also said that there had been a decline in the use by police of a number of technology-enabled devices, such as GPS, satellite and mobile phone location services.
