Research and Markets: Global Indoor Location Positioning Technology Report 2014: Research, Solutions & Trends

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mlmdrl/indoor_location) has announced the addition of the "Indoor Location Positioning Technology: Research, Solutions & Trends" report to their offering.

In December, 2011, the author released our first comprehensive report on indoor location positioning technology, predicting that indoor location technologies were going to revolutionize the mobile industry. Our subsequent reports have tracked the growth and ongoing R&D by major companies and start-ups.

Now, in our 417-page fully-updated report, we see the technology advances that have reached market and grabbed the spotlight.

Since our previous report:

  • Over 50 new start-up companies have launched, and several start-ups have been acquired
  • Hardware approaches to indoor location have demonstrated centimeter-level accuracy
  • Chips implementing indoor location in hardware have reached market
  • Many major companies previously doing quiet research have launched products
  • Proximity sensing has received huge market attention Indoor location applications have launched in malls, stores, and other sites worldwide and much more

In this fully revised and updated 417-page report, the author gives an up-to-date analysis and comprehensive overview of indoor location positioning R&D. Read about the research activity of all the major mobile companies - Google, Microsoft, Samsung, Apple, Nokia, RIM, Sony Mobile, Motorola & others - the major chip and network makers - Qualcomm, Broadcom, STMicroElectronics, CSR, Cisco, Aruba & others - other major technology vendors, and over one hundred start-up companies that are actively bringing indoor location services to market.

This updated report also explains the newest trends in the industry. What is the difference between proximity sensing and location positioning? Why are companies integrating multiple methods of indoor positioning instead of focusing on one? Why are many companies moving to network-centric approaches? What types of analysis are being done of user movement around a site? And perhaps most importantly, how are companies improving the accuracy of indoor positioning?
