With an ever-increasing number of “things” connecting to the Internet, we now have access to an overwhelming amount of data – especially location data. Whether your “things” are fixed sensors on a factory floor or mobile devices such as vehicles or drones, spatial context is critical for unlocking insights and providing actionable business value. The Location of Things (LoT) represents the new market opportunities that are unlocked from harnessing real-time contextual and proximity intelligence in IoT applications. With scenarios spanning indoor mapping, vehicle management, asset monitoring and much, much more, understanding the insights your location data can provide has never been more critical to developing next-generation IoT solutions.
