The global market of location-based services (LBS) is enjoying strong growth. LBS are designed to supply users of GPS- and Internet-enabled mobile devices with appropriate, timely and place-specific content. This gives immediate access to product or service information, price comparisons, product alternatives, reviews and direct purchase options. Wider coverage and higher speeds of mobile networks reinforce the number of people using location-based services.
LBS may be used in a variety of contexts:
- Driving Assistance
- Emergency and Healthcare Services
