May 2015. Benefits of indoor location. Joint whitepaper OGC, ILA, i-locate.
This white paper has been edited by our CTO as part of his activities as chair of Mobile Location Services Domain Working Group (MLS-DWG) at OGC, the Open Geospatial Consortium, and as coordinator of the EC project i-locate, of which Nively is a spin-off.
At the beginning of 2016 the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®), the Inlocation Alliance (ILA) and the i-locate Project jointly launched a survey on the benefits of indoor location.
The goal of the initiative was to acquire a broad view of the requirements and use cases emerging from the wider industrial and user community, beyond the memberships of the various organizations, in order to capture trends, challenges and opportunities, as well as trends and barriers to widespread use of indoor location technologies:
- Emerging requirements in terms of indoor location
- Main limitation and barrier to market uptake of indoor solution
- Recommendations to the industrial communities
- Recommendations to the standardisation communities
