LONDON, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:
Indoor LBS Market in the US 2014-2018
About Indoor LBS
Indoor LBS is used to track the location of an object or people within a building or a specific location such as a university campus. The indoor LBS is confined to a very limited geography; hence, it uses only wireless networks such as WiFi and WLAN that covers a small area. In addition, indoor LBS requires a high accuracy on the position of the object or device. Due to this, the indoor LBS uses positioning technologies based on WiFi, WLAN, UWB, Bluetooth, A-GPS, MEMS, and other hybrid technologies. Indoor LBS is mainly used in universities, hospitals, stadiums, shopping malls, government offices, airports, museums, convention centers, hotels, resorts, and parking areas.
The differentiating factor between the outdoor LBS and the indoor LBS is the use of GPS signals to locate the desired object or people. The GPS signals inside a building are low. In addition, the accuracy of localization in GPS positioning technology varies from 50-100 meters. As most of the users spend more than 80 percent of their time indoors; the requirement for tracking or discovering an object or people with high localization accuracy is required. Hence, the indoor LBS use LAN-based spatial technology for positioning of objects or people.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Location-based Search and Advertising market in the US will grow at a CAGR of 44.87 percent over the period 2013-2018.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
