Seminar: Developing Mobile LBS
Level: Intermediate

Today the technology exists to access information anywhere anytime. The challenge is to provide the right content. Location Based Services offers an attractive alternative for delivering information customised to a user´s situation. However, there are many questions surrounding the development. For example how do we acquire positioning information, outdoors and indoors? What accuracy can be expected?

This talk will answer these questions and many more. On the agenda is an introduction to current and future positioning technologies including: GPS, Bluetooth, GSM, Wlan, etc. as well as an in-depth look at both standardised and proprietary APIs. The seminar will show LBS in action.
