re: "Either you're already in this business or you've just a quick thinker."

The common theme amongst my son and his friends from their first year or two of college was: "I can't find my classroom. I can't even find the building."

That, and I tend to get lost easy when there's more than one hallway to choose from. Speaking of getting lost indoors, I could see this working for larger hotels too.

Good thoughts Duane. Either you're already in this business or you've just a quick thinker. One of your ideas might be the "killer app" for which everyone in the indoor navigation space is looking.

Captive applications for a start

It might make sense to start with a few captive applications, such as on-campus building navigation. It could come in the form of an app that new students could download and use. The app could work in concert with the student's class schedul and help them get to the right building and then to the right classroom.

Hospital visitation might be a good one too. It could get visitors to the right room while keeping them away from areas that need to be off limits.

Being captive to an institution, the app coul alread have knowledge of all of the institutions's wireless spots and could use those for positioning inside, or out.

_hm: That's a good question. Most businesses, of course, will welcome the publicity and ease with which people can find them, but for those trying to keep a low profile I'm not so sure. It may take a judge to decide the privacy question.

Legal and privacy concern for indoor navigation

Indoor navigation will be very helpful. But will it violate privacy of owner of facility? Will there be more legal aspect to indoor navigation?
