Wireless confidence is very focused on measurement, but let's keep in mind that confidence might also be expressible in terms of intelligence that can infer location indirectly (i.e. based on what I know I'm 70% sure you are in your office right now). If this intelligence wasn't derived by signal triangulation or GPS, than confidence measurement is a bit more subjective.
