Indoor Positioning Systems

An indoor location system helps in many cases. It creates routes, navigates users, locates items and inventory assets, and more.
What is a powerful solution for indoor positioning? A system that combines a 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.

  • User device

    smartphones or wearables that support Bluetooth Low Energy technology.

  • Indoor location tracking app

    a pre-installed app with a map of the facility.

  • BLE beacons

    BLE beacons help identify user location or trigger an event in an app.

  • Indoor mapping

    a map that is prepared with geomagnetic fingerprinting.

  • Beacon tag

    an active transmitter that is installed on an asset or inventory for location tracking.

  • Gateway

    device designed to detect and track beacon tags.

  • Tracking app

    an app that displays equipment location and movement in real time.

  • Indoor mapping

    a geomagnetic map is needed to determine location boundaries.

RocketRoute

RocketRoute integrates information from third-party resources and provides all required reference information at your fingertips.

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 immediately sends an alarm notification to the responsible person.

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

eLaundry

This CRM automates order processing while factoring in multiple parameters. A special GPS tracking app ensures optimum routes and schedules.

The team took over the project, 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. This keeps parents “in the know” regarding the exact location of their children and diminishes stress parents often feel when their children are beyond their immediate protection.

InNav

The InNav app helps users find the best 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 track user behavior inside buildings to help 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. The estimate varies based location and hourly rate of chosen software development provider. Regular subscriptions for indoor navigation engines and costs of BLE beacons are additional.

How does 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 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.
