Application Scenarios

There are many different ways that indoor positioning and smart office solutions can be used in office buildings and on company premises. A common implementation is a smartphone app with integrated navigation solution. Moreover, asset tracking can reduce search times and enables automatic inventory of assets. Geo-based analyses can be used to identify optimization potentials and improve processes. The application of environmental sensors in an office environment provides additional benefits.

Technical Implementation

Server-Based Positioning in Offices and Smart Buildings

For indoor navigation in offices, Bluetooth Low Energy beacons are implemented most of the time. Easy installation and long battery life of beacons are great advantages of this technology. Using a smartphone app, employees and visitors can easily navigate to relevant destinations on site and view their current position on a digital map. Sensor fusion - the use of smartphone sensors – can further improve precision.

For tracking assets and people in offices, an area precise, server-based localization solution based on infsoft Locator Beacons and Bluetooth tags is most commonly used. For this purpose, BLE beacons are attached to the assets to be tracked. The transmitted signals are received by an infsoft Locator Beacon and sent to an infsoft Locator Node, which forwards the data to the infsoft LocAware platform®.
