2007 was the year when â??GPS??? became a household word like Kleenex or Xerox. Location determination capability is on its way to becoming â??table stakes???, i.e., a basic feature that is part of mobile devices, and no longer just for regulatory reasons. The speaker will first introduce Rosumâ??s use of broadcast TV signals for location determination, and then will explore what applications become possible when location awareness becomes an always-available utility.

Locations: Because Life Moves
I will overview SiRF and location-aware devices then cover recent LBS market trends, an overview of various location technologies, an example LBS system architecture and end with SiRF’s wireless solutions portfolio as it maps to the LBS market.
