I had to look up fleet manager and travelmanager. These are business
terms. I did not consider fleet management, nor did I consider targeted
traveling advertising/upselling (travelmanager?).
I was looking at this from a non-commercial user standpoint as well as
scientific standpoint. Hence why I mentioned "crowd sourcing" weather
data and geolocation from smart devices via a webapp, or a health and
fitness training app (pulse, distance, altitude etc), or
health/wellbeing (baby monitoring, pet monitoring).
But regardless of the intened use or purpose. Splitting things into a
whole bunch of APIs and then trying to get permissions working for all
of them is going to be a huge pain IMO.
A general purpose permission system and a general purpose sensor api
(that can gather gps and various other things like ambient temperature
or pulse) would be a better long term goal. It would also be less likely
to screw up security this way.
Unless specified otherwise, anything I write publicly is considered
Public Domain (CC0). My opinions are my own unless specified otherwise.
