Welcome to Global LBS
Global LBS is the only UK location based services trend spotting website advocating the issues surrounding Location Based Services as this is a important technology we globally cannot avoid.The aim of the site is to give an unbiased opinion on the latest trends, technologies and issues related to Location Based Services and the surrounding technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT).
There are ongoing studies by the European Commision for example, on RFID and The Internet of Things' impact on society. This impact will initially be, for example, the way we use the internet and as more and more objects communicate with each other, the level of intricate networks created.
The Commission's 'Future Internet public-private partnership' (FI-PPP) is working to deliver a 'shared vision for harmonised European-scale technology platforms and their implementation'. This means bringing together the relevant policy, legal and regulatory frameworks and mechanisms to support the Digital Agenda for Europe creating an online 'Digital single market' spanning seamlessly across all 27 Member States, and more broadly, an inclusive knowledge society.
