Objective

Proposal Full Title: Location based services for the enhancement of working environment Proposal Acronym: LIAISON Addressed strategic objective: 2.3.2.6 "Applications and Services for the Mobile User and Worker" Proposal Abstract: The LIAISON project will turn emergent technologies, applications and services into actual business cases in order to allow key European actors to fulfil in a competitive manner the needs of workers in their daily life, for seamless and personalised location services across heterogeneous network. Led by Alcatel Space, this Integrated Project unites expertise and activities from major European actors committed to provision of end-to-end Location Based Services, applications and solutions. The project will have an overall duration of 3.5 years. To achieve this target, LIAISON will integrate numerous existing standards and techniques, bring a set of emerging underlying technologies to the required maturity for professional usage, enhance the system capabilities through innovations resulting from the EGNOS and Galileo signals. Such an approach will contribute to new business models to secure the sustainability of the services and applications. LIAISON'S objectives are user-driven: end user communities, including institutional bodies and industrial actors seeking currently unavailable reliable LBS solutions, are strongly committed through their direct integration into the consortium. Through the co-ordination of leading LBS actors and mobile worker communities, LIAISON will: - Consolidate the objectives for "LBS in working environments" and the commercial requirements - Define the architecture of an end-to-end LBS solution for mobile workers in ubiquitous manner - Validate the key function of the LIAISON solution, its performance, and working environment impacts through representative and complementary tests cases - Perform advanced Research and Development activities into LBS to enhance the performance of the future solutions and enable new f
