Grizzly Analytics discounts subscription service for the new year

Grizzly Analytics Mobile Monthly Intelligence Subscription Service:
Discounted for the New Year
December 1, 2011

Subscribers to Grizzly Analytics mobile intelligence service receive monthly reports and weekly updates that analyze the developing trends in the mobile industry and explain how they matter to you and what is likely to happen next.  Grizzly Analytics is now lowering our price for yearly subscriptions, as companies prepare for the New Year.

Everyone in the mobile and Internet industries knew in August that Google acquired DealMap.  Grizzly Analytics subscribers knew that this acquisition is part of a bigger trend of “daily deals” services incorporating mobile location, and that there were several other acquisitions and service launches in the same month comprising the same trend.  They also learned about related R&D by EBay, Microsoft and others, and read our analysis of how this trend impacts on commerce and the financial markets.

Similarly, everyone in the mobile industry knows that indoor location positioning is a big missing technology capability in mobile commerce and services.  Grizzly Analytics subscribers learned in August of a big research initiative in indoor location positioning by Qualcomm, and how it compares to related R&D by Sony Ericsson, Samsung and others.  They also read our analysis of the huge implications this will have for commerce.

Each month, Grizzly Analytics subscribers receive a report of roughly 50 pages analyzing 3-4 major trends developing in the previous month.  In addition to the trends themselves, we outline implications that they have on business and the financial markets (public companies, potential acquisitions).  Each week, Grizzly Analytics subscribers receive a brief easy-to-read “Monday morning update” e-mail giving the implications and preliminary analysis of the developments of the previous week.  And each month, Grizzly Analytics subscribers get a one hour phone call with our analyst to discuss how mobile industry trends affect them directly.

We also are pleased to offer our reports translated into other languages, for a small additional price.

Intel demos indoor location technology in new Wi-Fi chips at MWC 2015

Intel made several announcements at MWC 2015, including a new chipset for wireless connectivity (Wi-Fi) in mobile devices. This new chipset, the 8270, include in-chip support for indoor location positioning. Below we explain their technology and show a video of it in action. With this announcement, Intel joins Broadcom, Qualcomm and other chip makers in moving broad indoor location positioning into mobile device hardware.

The transition of indoor location positioning into chips is a trend identified in the newest Grizzly Analytics report on Indoor Location Positioning Technologies, released the week before MWC 2015. By moving indoor location positioning from software into hardware, chips such as Intel's enable location positioning to run continuously and universally, without using device CPU, and with less power consumption.

Intel's technology delivers 1-3 meter accuracy, using a technique called multilateration, generating a new location estimate every second. While 1-3 meter …

Seeing Quuppa's indoor location technology at MWC 2015

I first met Fabio and Kimmo from Quuppa in 2012, before Quuppa existed, when they had spent years researching indoor location positioning technologies at Nokia Research Center. Less than a year after that they formed Quuppa, independent of Nokia, to bring their technology to market. At the time I called Quuppa "the newest and oldest in indoor location positioning."

Fast forward two and a half years. Their technology has reached market, it can now track both smartphones and BLE devices, and it's accurate to within 20-50cm. Before reading more about their technology, take a look at a video of their demo in action:

Grizzly Analytics has analyzed indoor location technologies by over 150 companies, and virtually all of the radio-based technologies operate by measuring the distance between the device being tracked and other radio devices, and using these distance measurements for either multilateration or fingerprinting. For example, the well known BLE beacons measure a device…

Robot Camera Foreshadows an Era of Location-Aware Electronics

A French company called Move 'N See produces a line of camera robots. Their devices act as a smart tripod, holding a video camera and automatically moving and zooming the camera as people of interest move around a site.

The idea is simple but amazingly innovative. Photo selfies are easy to take, but video selfies are next to impossible. How can I video myself playing football or doing gymnastics, without setting the camera so far back as to be useless? Do spectators want to spend an entire sporting event carefully videoing their friend or relative moving around the field?
Enter Move 'N See's "personal robot cameramen." Their devices aim, pan and zoom a video camera as one or more people move around an area. The people of interest wear armbands whose locations are tracked, enabling the camera controller to know where to aim the camera. The camera controller also includes enough smarts to adjust the camera smoothly and to capture multiple people evenly. The armband…
