Abstract:
The last decades have seen the applications related to Global Positioning Systems (GPS) flourishing in various and unrelated ways such as car navigation, electronic advertisement, military defense (e.g. missile tracking) ... etc. The increasing consumers interest in positioning market is also due to the recent coupling of mobile phone and GPS technologies which is deemed to kick-off the location based services market (LBS). The LBS market are electronic services for providing information that has been created, compiled, selected or filtered taking into consideration the current locations of the users or those of other persons or mobile objects. Analysts foresee that these services will open a new era of mass consumption market where all positioning technologies will play a key role. The level of positioning accuracy (e.g. 1 cm or 1 m) will be a service that the user may order from his mobile phone, laptop or other devices.
