How Do Indoor Positioning Systems Work?

Indoor location tracking helps in many cases. It is required to create routes, navigate users, locate items and inventory assets, and more.

What is a powerful solution for indoor positioning?

A system that combines a number of technologies that can serve as “indoor GPS tracking”, including geomagnetic map, BLE beacons, and motion sensors.

Collected data is merged for navigation accuracy of approx. 2 ft. – 6 ft. (0.5 m to 2 m) possible.

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?

Indoor navigation systems are complex solutions that require 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 systems collect user data on user movement inside the facility. This data is then displayed via heat maps or diagrams. They track user behavior inside buildings to help optimize facility management.

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

How much does an indoor navigation system cost?

Costs of indoor navigation systems vary based on the required feature list. A basic feature list costs between $30,000 and $350,000. The estimate varies based on location and hourly rate of chosen software development provider. Regular subscriptions for indoor navigation engines and costs of BLE beacons are additional.

How does an indoor positioning system work?

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

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