Solutions

Indoor navigation and indoor positioning can be realized easily with infsoft technology. The combination of various sensors allows accuracy of one meter (approx. three feet). insoft uses smartphone sensors (WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, GSM, 3G/4G (LTE), magnetic fields, compass, air pressure, barometer, accelerometer, gyroscope) and combines them with external sensor data from WiFi access points, Beacons, Locator Nodes or VLC (Visual Light Communication).

With infsoft Indoor Analytics it is possible to monitor mobile devices in real time. Get useful information about visitor flows, behavior and interests of your visitors – including a heat map visualisation. The solution offers great opportunities for airports, retail, trade fairs, railway stations and many more. Details

Indoor tracking includes tracking people and goods, which can be products, pallets, tools or vehicles. Tracking can be realised with various signal generators such as Bluetooth Beacons. Target markets are among others: the security sector, industrial areas, offices, trade fairs and transport. Details

infsoft’s solution portfolio also covers location based services. LBS are services that refer to the users' current positions. For example they can be given information about POIs around them or can receive coupons of shops nearby. Location based services also include geofencing. Details
