Course Overview

The “Location Based Services” (LBS) seminar will describe a comprehensive picture of the LBS world and cover key technologies, key markets, vertical industries, applications, solutions, value chain and key stakeholders. The seminar will also deal with the different challenges faced by the industry. Main attention will also be given to the range of current and future applications. The seminar will not cover military technologies and applications.
The seminar will be conducted as a full day seminar. It will be presented as a series of frontal presentations associated with participants’ activities such as case study analysis and industry challenges simulations of both products and business issues.


EID a security aspect for the Eddystone API for Beacon use has been announced by Google on April 2016. Another step in the ongoing stream of announcements and innovation in the areas of “Location Based Services”.
During the last decade RTLS (Real Time Location Systems) became highly available to a large number of applications and vertical markets. This area, which started with outdoor satellite based location capabilities, is now everywhere, from indoors to Naval and aviation solutions and from simple navigation to complex and sophisticated tracking and commercial applications. Location, tracking and navigation new methods (like the wide use of beacons) are constantly developing while the performance level of existing means and technologies are constantly improving. Recently, Location and tracking capabilities are becoming a major part of the Internet of things evolution.
