ILA stands for In Location Alliance. Accurate indoor positioning opens up plenty of possibilities for new mobile services. For a consumer this could mean, for example:

  • receiving directions to the right product and personalized product promotions in nearby shops
  • using real-time navigation inside a building
  • finding the precise location of assets and people
  • increasing security in emergency situations

For facility owners and local service providers this could enable, for example: increased local customer identification, enhanced product placement and better customer satisfaction by deploying resources when and where needed.

There are countless uses for accurate indoor positioning with both mobile devices such as mobile phones as well as with passive, locatable tags. Here the alliance members provide few examples of what could be achieved with accurate indoor positioning.
