According to a major new study by Here Technologies, a fundamental rethink is needed in the way that companies gather and use location data in order for people to embrace new services such as autonomous cars and drone deliveries.

According to the study, just 20% of people feel they have full control over their personal location data, with 44% sharing location data with apps and service providers unintentionally, despite trying to restrict access.
