My brother in Wired

My brother Toby and his wife Sharon recently started a company called PathIntelligence. They have been working on technology to allow the behaviour of people within a space to be measured passively without the need for any user-participation (and any invasion of privacy). This is done using software-decoded radio and the triangulation of radio signals transmitted from mobile phones during their communication with base stations. Analysis of this data allows measurement of correlation between spaces, density within spaces and much more.

Wired recently interviewed Toby for an article on GNU Radio. You can read it online here.
