 The term Indoor Positioning Systems (IPS) primarily concerns location-based services on mobile phones where GPS does not work. The term Real Time Locating Systems (RTLS) primarily concerns locating people and things at a distance, securely, using second generation RFID. The subjects are converging with Apple, Samsung, Google, Nokia, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard and IBM clashing for the tens of millions of dollars of business that is emerging. The first $0.5 billion order has been landed. This subject heavily involves short range communications notably WiFi and Bluetooth and inertial navigation and advanced RFID as it progresses to determining 3D position including orientation and line of travel.

Feedstock Market - Global Industry Size, Market Share, Trends, Analysis, And Forecasts 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
The economic downturn in the past few years has drastically affected petrochemical demand. The increasing fuel prices and reduced petrochemical production have made it necessary to look for alternative fuel sources to satisfy the increasing energy requirements. Owing to these factors the feedstock market is set to witness double digit growth rate in the coming future. Petrochemical industries are finding ways to optimize production and reduce cost. Use of an alternative feedstock is the key criterion for achieving low cost production as feedstock prices have become highly...
