Skyhook

Skyhook Wireless o sistema usado pelo iPhone e iPod Touch para localizao pessoal. O mote: “location is everywhere”!!!


“Skyhoook’s Wi-Fi Positioning System (WPS) is the world’s first location platform to use the native 802.11 radio already on a mobile device to deliver accurate positioning across the US and major cities worldwide.

With WPS, Device Manufacturers, Application Developers, and Operators can easily deliver location-based services the hundreds of millions of Wi-Fi devices that don’t have GPS. If they do, WPS’ sub-second time-to-fix, +99% indoor availability and 10-20m accuracy in urban areas is the perfect compliment to GPS’ known limitations.

(…) Skyhook Wireless respects the privacy of your location. Skyhook does not collect personally identifying information, track your location, or share your location without your consent.(…)”
