Title: REDUCED POWER LOCATION DETERMINATIONS FOR DETECTING GEO-FENCES
Abstract:
Various different areas of interest are identified, these areas being geographic areas that are also referred to as geo-fences. Whether a computing device is in a geo-fence can be determined based on the location of the geo-fence and the location of the computing device. The location of a computing device can be determined using various different location determination techniques, such as wireless networking triangulation, cellular positioning, Global Navigation Satellite System positioning, network address positioning, and so forth. Various power saving techniques are implemented to determine which techniques are used and when such techniques are used to reduce power consumption in the computing device.
