Navizon came out with the Indoor Triangulation system from the location services company that can now locate the location of people in public areas just by using their cell phone and other Wi-Fi devices. Directed towards office buildings, museums, shopping malls and places like retails stores, this technology is merely being used for surveillance and security reasons. Authorities can even use data from I.T.S to measure the traffic pattern areas for that specific area.
It shouldn’t receive so much controversy since the new system merely detects the presence of and pinpoints the Wi-Fi signals on your phone rather than your identity. This system has many approaches merely to locate the presence of Wi-Fi devices in a certain area. This can be used to see how many smart phone users are present in a certain retails store. It can assist the users in navigating their way around a certain unknown area.
Each wifi device does have its separate signature, and some higher organization could be making use of to make some sort of sense out of it. However, linking a person’s identify with the signal won’t occur without asking the device owner. Navizon surely doesn’t want what happened to Apple regarding location tracking. A lawsuit was filed against the company that accused Apple of violating privacy laws. Under the Computer and Fraud Abuse Act, Apple has been charged for keeping track of user locations without even giving a way for disabling the locations.
Good news for the average smart phone user is that with the addition from Navizon they can enjoy benefits like making their way or finding their position in a building or a store. Tourists or people visiting a mall for the first time can take advantage of this system and spend time shopping instead of finding their way. With Navizon functioning with the cell towers, wifi and GPS, it is attempting to cover as much field as it can. With the I.T.S, you will be able to pinpoint your location using signals from the three aforementioned sources.
Let alone the companies themselves, now even apps are available to provide minute to minute monitoring on cell phones regardless of it being blackberry, Android and Apple. Apps like Flexispy and Mobistealth enable the installer to be aware of all the text messages, calls, pictures and videos that are made from the phone in which it’s installed. Parents and employers are making use of this technology as much as they can. These softwares also make use of the GPS, cell tower and wifi signals to tell the precise location just like Navizon does.
All in all, Navizon has expanded its network to quite an extend. Malls and Museums can make to identify how many people came in today and what was the major attraction. As for museums, the I.T.S can be used to see how many people are left and precisely where they are located. In hospitals, the location of a certain doctor can be figured out in just a matter of minutes.
