How is what3words able to provide accurate address of every location?

With what3words, Chris Sheldrick and his team have divided the entire planet into three-meter squares and assigned each a unique, three-word identifier, like famous.splice.writers or blocks.evenly.breed, giving a precise address to the billions of people worldwide who don’t have one. In this quick talk about a big idea, Sheldrick explains the economic and political implications of giving everyone an accurate address — from building infrastructure to sending aid to disaster zones to delivering hot pizza.

We have named every 3mx3m in the world with unique combination of 3 words.

Geospatial Start up of the Year is valuable recognition for What3Words.

The Idea behind what3words was to use words 3 words as it is easy for people to grasp.

We use latitude and longitude with our algorithm to generate 3 words addressing.

We do not use any address or pass code or anything which is much bigger then 3 meters.

The country’s transport minister has outlined the basis for future legal guidelines for driverless vehicles, rules that echo Isaac Asimov’s three laws of robotics, which manufacturers will be expected to work towards ahead of formal legalization.

In an interview with Wirtschaftswoche published Thursday (translated by A9T9 from German), transport minister Alexander Dobrindt stated there will be three key rules:

(1) “It is clear that property damage takes always precedence of personal injury.

(2) “There must be no classification of people, for example, on the size, age and the like.”

And
