InnovateUK last month released the full list of winning projects for its Innovation in location-based services competition, that offered investment of up to £5m in projects that stimulate innovation in the UK location-based services sector.

The aim of the competition was to support projects that take advantage of the increasing accuracy, coverage and speed of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) such as GPS and other non-satellite technologies such as iBeacon, Wi-Fi and radio frequency identification (RFID) to build innovative location-based services or improve the user experience of existing services.

The competition closed on 11 June 2014, and the results– output on 14 September 2014 – include projects for improved rail track worker safety, freight transport logistics, plus a InnovateUK funding award for the Satellite Applications Catapult.
