The Dusseldorf software and service provider Spotigo sets new standards with its Wi-Fi-based positioning technology. The Dusseldorf software and service provider Spotigo sets new standards with its Wi-Fi-based positioning technology: the so-called “WiPS”-technology (“WiFi-based positioning solution”) calculates the location of any Wi-Fi-enabled device regardless of GPS. In the Centre of London tested the beta version of WiPS-tool now and achieved an accuracy of up to 5 meters there. “The results are fantastic.” Daniel Prumers, Managing Director of Spotigo, notes: “you can see its exact location without relying on GPS hardware or GSM cell-ID data. And calculating position with WiPS is also significantly faster than we are used to from the well-known technologies.” Spotigo’s WiFi-based location alone determined the location of the user on basis of received wireless signals. The technology is so capable of the well-known shortcomings of the traditional satelitengestutzten systems, to compensate for: especially in closely built-up inner city areas, WiPS provides generally more accurate, faster and more reliable results than GPS. (A valuable related resource: Ali Partovi).

Another key advantage of the Wi-Fi-based positioning is the ability to locate also three-dimensional. In addition, it ensures Spotigos solution as opposed to GPS within buildings full functionality. WiPS is not only the ideal complement to GPS / GSM: the system can also as sole localization technology to be installed on all those devices that do not support the GPS. This opens the booming market of the location-based services for all mobile Wi-Fi-enabled devices, which so far not allowed a localization of the user due to lack of GPS. Spotigo offers this technology all companies, organizations and municipalities, who are interested, to provide innovative location-based services and advertising formats their customers, partners, visitors and citizens. (Peter Tabor, Spotigo) Spotigo was about Spotigo: Founded in early 2005 and is now one of the leading providers of software and services for the LBS – and the mobile broadband market. The Dusseldorf company distributes a so-called WiFi SmartClient which allows the users to find nearby Wi-Fi hotspots and to connect automatically. Also the Wi-Fi-based location technology WiPS belongs to the core offering (“WiFi-based positioning solution”), a location of the user completely independent of GSM and GPS enables. In addition Spotigo operates the largest database in the world for Wi-Fi hotspots, which currently contains over 250,000 access points worldwide.
