US: The Open Geospatial Consortium, the InLocation Alliance and i-locate Project have invited users to contribute to their survey on use cases and benefits of indoor positioning. The survey is intended to provide the three organizations with a current snapshot of the requirements of different stakeholders (within and beyond OGC and ILA members), so that the organizations will have an up-to-date overview of the market for indoor positioning.
The results of this survey will be published in a joint ILA and OGC white paper that will be available to the public. Kirk Burroughs, board chair of InLocation Alliance stated that "the indoor positioning market is currently translating the successful use cases of "outdoor" GPS based positioning indoors, and has the potential to deliver significant benefits to both application users and application providers. ILA is reaching out to the various industries, from retail to transportation, from healthcare to emergency services, etc., where indoor LBS can be a transforming technology."
