Comparative Analysis of Location Based Technologies Inorder To Develop IOT Applications
Improvements in information and communication technologies have led to the development of Internet of Things (IoT). The Internet of Things is an emerging topic enabling everyday objects to communicate and exchange information from anyplace. Similarly, as a fast improvement in information technologies such as wireless communication and internet, location based technologies including Near Field Communication NFC, Radio Frequency Identification RFID, and Bluetooth Low Energy BLE have turned an engaging subject to researchers, organizations and commercial enterprises. Use of these technologies in IoT applications is beneficial for businesses, industries, environment and society. This paper consolidates the information on the state of-the-art Internet of Things abbreviated as IoT, from its structural design, system architecture and hardware requirements, to its standards and protocol stacks. This paper presents an insight into various location based technologies and highlights the proposed services to be provided by these location based technologies. This paper also makes a comparative analysis of various location based technologies in terms of power consumption, range, cost, data transfer rate and accuracy.
