On the ideas of Spotex

"Location services company Navizon has a new system, called Navizon I.T.S., that could allow tracking of visitors in malls, museums, offices, factories, secured areas and just about any other indoor space. It could be used to examine patterns of foot traffic in retail spaces, assure that a museum is empty of visitors at closing time, or even to pinpoint the location of any individual registered with the system. But let's set all that aside for a minute while we freak out about the privacy implications." - from here

Actually it tracks the open Wi-Fi on mobile phones. Our Spotex solves the reverse task - scans Wi-Fi access nodes from the mobile.
