Mobile Location-Based Services (LBS) have been ‘the next big thing’ for years now, but have not materialised due to a mixture of technical and business constraints. With increasing numbers of mobile phones being equipped with Wi-Fi and GPS receivers, this looks set to change.
What are the main location technologies and how do they work? What technical, business and social challenges do companies face when developing LBS for mobiles? What LBS can we expect to see on mobiles in the next 2-3 years? How will current favourites such as social networking and online advertising evolve in a location-aware world? This talk will address these questions and more.
