Location-based applications are currently proprietary to service that is providing location information, hence they require significant modifications to be able to run with another localization service. To address this pitfall, a recently proposed middle-ware localization service architecture allows seamless provisioning of location information based on applications’ requirements, irregardless of the underlying source of location information. A unified style of interaction between the application and the middle-ware service is supported by the Standardized Localization Interface (SLI). In this work, we first overview the main interaction primitives of the SLI. We follow by demonstrating its benefits using location-enhanced horizontal WiFi handover as an example application.
