About the Event
Indoor positioning is the next frontier in location technology for mobile devices. The popularity of smartphones and location based applications is driving GPS attach rates on handsets to unprecedented levels. However a whole new world indoors, remains unexplored. New technology is needed for enabling positioning indoors and several new applications can benefit from the presence of such capability such as navigation and search, aisle level location of retail items, check-ins, gaming etc.
