Angelo Lamme, from Motorola, said tracking students on a campus could help during a fire or an emergency.

"You would know where your people are at any given moment," he said.

Marcus Birkl, head of wireless at Siemens, said location tracking of assets or people was one of the biggest incentives for companies, hospitals and education institutions to roll out wi-fi networks.

Tis a good idea in principle, but will be heavily abused imho.

With Baby Madline on the missing list there is a company doing what you would call a Baby tag.

It had mixed reviews.

It worked on the basis of going out of range.
