What about the Servers? by @jmons

  1. 1. Location Aware Services James Taylor / @jmons
  2. 2. Proxama – Location Services Setting the Scene You can use Geo location tools for a mobile phone to know where it is But sometimes this doesn’t work, either because its not accurate enough, or because you have no signal inside, or its just too slow, or battery intensive (geofencing). A lot of applications require ‘hyper local’, even more accurate then GPS. Basically I want to know when you stand at a set of checkouts which checkout you went to. Proxama use infrastructure to ‘tell’ a mobile device where it is, to give it a hint. This is in the form of NFC tags, QR codes, or BLE beacons. So I’m going to show a case study:
