2015 Location-Based Services R&D Summit Report



Harris Feldman, Adam H. Danielson


The Public Safety Communications Research Program (PSCR) convened over 80 stakeholders at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Boulder, CO campus to build on the findings presented in the 2015 Location-Based Services (LBS) Summit- held October 21-22, 2015 - intended to socialize the Roadmap with a broader stakeholder base and determine the core technology challenges inhibiting Public Safety's effective and expanded use of LBS in daily operations. The Summit resulted in a list of clearly defined LBS technology gaps prioritized against criteria, a list of LBS capabilities that could arise as a result of NIST R&D funds, and specific problem statements relating to the highest priority LBS challenges.
