Indoor Navigation App Development
What is Indoor Mapping Technology?
The indoor positioning system uses an indoor mapping technology utilizing radio waves, electromagnetic fields, VHF audio frequencies and other forms of reverberating information feedback mechanisms to detect the presence of objects, walls, partitions, doors and furniture to create a 2-dimensional representation of the area with a top-down view. The system uses advanced systems such as Mobile Centric Wi-Fi and Network Centric Wi-Fi from Cisco or a Mobile Centric Bluetooth Low Energy beacon to generate the positional information within the building. This information is processed to generate two-dimensional maps within the building.
Since most buildings are not flat, but have a tiered structure, these systems generate multiple maps for each tier of the building. AIS Technolabs creates customized indoor navigation apps which display the internal structure of the building directly on a user’s smartphone.
are the benefits of an
Indoor Navigation App?
An indoor navigation app can have a plethora of benefits; both from the user point of view as well as the organizational point of view. Such systems are designed for both discovery as well as for rescue and emergency management systems.
Indoor navigation apps for subway systems help commuters find the correct path, get to the optimal exit point, while being correlated to the road layout of the surface. Indoor maps help users to find the right connecting station for not only other subway lines, but also for other forms of transportation.
Indoor navigation apps have shown to have a great impact on shopping malls. With the floor space of shopping malls getting bigger and bigger, it becomes difficult for the consumers to find their store of choice easily. An indoor mapping app helps users to not only find their store of choice, but also reach the checkout counters easily; decongesting checkout lines and improving the overall shopping experience, which translates to faster sales and higher footfall.
To inculcate a calm and peaceful atmosphere, universities are usually spread across a large area, with multiple buildings, kitchens, clubs, playgrounds, parking lots, underground subways, walkways and cycling lanes all interconnected throughout. For most freshmen, it becomes painful to reach from one department to the other. Since smartphones are ubiquitous, an indoor navigation solution is of immense help to both students and faculty members.
Modern airports are an extremely busy space, with multiple lounges, shopping areas, restrooms, as well as various terminals for both domestic and international flights. In addition, there are locations which house counter-terrorism units, security patrols, immigration counters, as well as taxi booths, car rental services and even hotels. To ensure that passengers can smoothly transit from one location to another, an indoor navigation app is of high importance for such buildings. Furthermore, due to the threat of illicit activities, an indoor navigation system helps emergency and security workers to quickly reach the requisite spot, with minimal interference.
AIS Technolabs provides organizations with superior indoor mapping technologies which not only map the interiors of buildings, but also display the maps in a tailor-made app specifically tuned to the exacting requirements of their esteemed clientele.
With smartphones becoming a part and parcel of everyday life, and GPS technologies becoming more and more efficient, an indoor mapping app is the next step in the evolution of location-tracking and convenience.
