 There are a number of technologies that may be deployed that all provide the ability for devices to "discover" one another, although over different distances ranging from centimeters (Near Field Communications), to meters (Bluetooth), to 10s of meters (Wi-Fi). They also all provide the ability for the devices to communicate directly with one another without a centralized network. Some of these use direct communication as their primary mode of communication e.g. NFC or RFID. Others are more traditional networks which provide direct communication ability as an adjunct to their primary network functions e.g. LTE-Direct or Wi-Fi Direct. 
   
 Most of the short-term drivers for proximity-based services will be mobile advertising and social networking, especially friend-finder...

Infrared Imaging Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
The technique of capturing and converting invisible infrared images into visible images is called infrared imaging. Visible light is easily detected by the human eye, but to see infrared light it is important to have infrared cameras and imagers. These devices possess special sensors that operate without the need of visible light. The radiations in the infrared imaging technique are emitted by the targeted objects or are reflected radiations. The imaging devices have infrared illuminator lasers with LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) for the purpose of illumination. The infrared radiations...
