RocketRoute

RocketRoute integrates information from third-party resources and provides all needed reference information at hand.

The team launched an MVP and quickly expanded it to mobile iOS and Android apps.

SoS Pro

This advanced alarm app helps determine user location in an emergency situation and sends an alarm notification immediately to a responsible person.

Several technologies are used to precise user location. Users can set up parameters in just five minutes. They can also customize alert settings.

eLaundry

This CRM automates order processing taking into account multiple parameters. A special GPS tracking app ensures optimum routes and schedules.

The team took over the project. It improved source code and completed the CRM system.

Our School Bus

Our School Bus tracking app helps parents and school administrators monitor the exact location of children and buses on their way to/from school.

The app also automatically scans students when they get on the bus and sends information to the server.

InNav

The InNav app helps users find the optimal route within a venue, find their friends, and locate their car parked “somewhere” in the parking lot.

The app also provides a heat map tool on user activity and an administration panel where administrators can manage BLE beacons.

questions from our clients

What is indoor mapping?

Indoor mapping is the process of creating digital representations for indoor spaces. It is crucial for indoor location tracking. A precise digital map of a floor makes it possible to locate users and objects, create routes, and navigate users through buildings.

How do you build an indoor navigation system?

An indoor navigation system is a complex piece of software that requires integration of several technologies and fine-tuning to different user devices.
Indoor navigation development includes several steps:

  • analysis of facility and choice of technological stack (beacons, geofencing)
  • purchase of beacons and/or subscriptions for navigation engines
  • iOS/Android indoor location tracking app
  • development of a location tracking app for wearables
  • development of Web admin panel
  • venue mapping
  • installation of beacons
  • tuning and adjustment
  • beta-testing
  • launch for wide audience
What are indoor positioning analytics?

Indoor positioning apps collect user data on user movement inside the facility. This data is then displayed via heat maps or diagrams. They determine user behavior inside buildings thus helping optimize facility management.

Indoor positioning systems can be also used for object tracking, e.g., inside warehouses or hospitals, helping optimize flow, monitoring costly equipment, and preventing theft.

How much does an indoor navigation system cost?

This all depends on the required feature list. A basic feature list costs between $30,000 and $350,000-plus regular subscriptions for indoor navigation engines and costs of BLE beacons.

How does indoor positioning system work?

Briefly, a smartphone detects signals from three beacons. It uses the strength of beacon signals to determine position. Geofencing helps create facility maps and specify location. Smartphone motion sensors help track user movements.

For asset tracking, beacon tags actively transmit signals that gateways detect. Gateways detect signal strength and send the data to the server. The server calculates position and sends it to the user app. Geofencing helps precise location and determine the area from which assets cannot leave.
