New Generation of Technology Takes Wireless Indoor Location Tracking to the Next Level

Of all the exciting new technologies and applications the explosion of sensors and network-connected things has brought to us, one of the most intriguing has to be indoor locationing – detecting and tracking mobile devices and assets in buildings based on their wireless signals for purposes ranging from asset tracking and security to visitor wayfinding and targeted marketing.

The concept of indoor locationing, and the possibilities it presented, started getting serious attention in 2009 and 2010 after new smartphone sales overtook those of ‘feature phones.’ With the Internet and consumerized location apps like Google Maps and Foursquare in the pocket of a growing percentage of the population, it didn’t take long for entrepreneurs and marketers to realize the value of bringing GPS-like locationing capabilities indoors.

Early approaches to indoor locationing, however, had limited success. Poor device detection, high maintenance costs, inaccurate locationing and low user acceptance all hampered their adoption. More recently, newer technologies introduced better locationing and statistical models to fill in the information gaps left by earlier systems, but the dream of delivering the perfectly tailored marketing offer at the perfect place to the perfect person still remains far from reality.

As with many technologies, while the use originally imagined may not be coming to fruition right now, indoor locationing is making surprising inroads in a completely different […]

Tempered Networks and the Security EcoSystem

TNThe best block is to not be there” – Mr. Miyagi

Designing, installing, and maintaining your company’s infrastructure can be one heck of a job. I’ve been doing network architecture for about 20 years now and the best explanation I’ve ever found to tell people what I do is still, “I make sure packets go from point A to point B, and back again”. Horribly simplified, but if I start going down the rabbit-hole about L1-L4 design ideas and trade-offs, they immediately look like they just stepped on a rake and knocked themselves silly. Seriously, if I ever want my kids to go to sleep right away, I just pick a random page out of “TCP/IP Illustrated” and start reading it to them. “Forget counting sheep, I’ve got a subnet mask for you to work on…” But one of the things that keeps me up at night is security. I’ve had plenty of clients who’ve back-burnered security and woke up the next day to an encrypted file system and demands for bitcoins. I’ve got others who are now starting to realize that everybody accessing their IP/sensitive docs internally maybe really isn’t a good thing and those emails from Mr. Nairbobi? Ya know, the ones that say you’re rich and can you please open this PDF as well […]

Augmented Reality Marketing

augmented realityUnless you’ve been living in a cave for the past few years, you’ve undoubtedly heard that Augmented Reality, the enhancement of the physical world with digital information, is the “next big thing.”

AR, as it’s called, is hot and big tech firms such as Microsoft, Google, Facebook and Sony, have all announced upcoming AR products ranging from goggles to games. Hundreds of other firms are also working on technology that will bring AR into every corner of our lives – home, work, transportation, education, you name it.

What does this mean to marketers? Are we looking at a future where everyone has “Terminator Vision” and we can float personalized digital ads across the sky or magically wrap a real building inside a virtual can of cold beer? Sorry, but no. As interesting as that sounds, it’s going to be some time before enough people are equipped with the AR hardware to make that possible. There is, however, one interesting AR application that is rapidly emerging thanks to the fact that nearly every adult is now carrying a smartphone. It’s called “context awareness” and it has the potential to transform marketing as we know it.

Contextual AR uses “who”, “what”, “where” and “when” to divine the “why” of a customer’s behavior and then precisely tailor marketing efforts based on that information. Of […]
