About LBS
LBS or location-based services are information services that use real-time geographical data from a smartphone or mobile device to provide security services, information, and entertainment. LBS applications are predominantly used by consumers, government organizations, and small and medium-scale industries. These are mainly used in healthcare, supply-chain, and retail outlets. They provide a medium to connect enterprises to consumers. In the Consumer segment, they are used for car navigation, obtaining traffic information, pedestrian navigation, mobile payment, mobile coupons, friend finder, date finder, family locator, check-in, indoor routing, mobile yellow pages, shopping guides, product tracking, car-parking guidance, weather information, and finding nearest taxi and buses. LBS have made the day-to-day life of a consumer easier by providing assistance with a large number of applications with many benefits, at an economical cost. They are also used in indoor places such as stadium, shopping malls, hospitals, airports, convention centers, auditoriums, university campuses, and office buildings.
