SDK for Indoor Navigation and Beyond
infsoft's technology is also available as plugins for integration into third party apps. This means that existing applications can be upgraded with infsoft indoor positioning and indoor navigation. The SDK (Software Development Kit) is currently available for the Android and iOS mobile operating systems and as a HTML5 plugin. In addition to a native implementation, the use of frameworks such as PhoneGap or Xamarin is also possible.
The software development kit contains the following libraries:
Using the infsoft Maps Library, you can integrate interactive 2D/3D maps.
The map material can be zoomed in and out, and covers all floors of the building.
The library also offers numerous display and adjustment options.
The infsoft Locator Library enables positioning within buildings. Along with GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth beacons, the smartphone sensors are also used (barometer, accelerometer, compass, etc.). The system offers seamless indoor/outdoor positioning and provides a virtual GPS coordinate of the location (latitude, longitude, and building floor). Thus, the Locator Library can also be connected with third-party systems.
The Locator Library can be used with the Android and iOS operating systems.
Routing using start and destination parameters is realized via the Routes Library. It also offers contextual guidance based on different roles (e.g. barrier-free guidance).
A turn-by-turn view is also available that uses marked way points. This makes it even easier for the user to navigate.
Other features such as an optional voice output or haptic feedback for visually impaired people can also be linked to the class library.
Special destinations are managed in the GeoItems Library in different categories. It also has a search function for different characteristics. The determined position is issued as virtual GPS coordinates and can be used as such in the app for your own purposes. Using infsoft 2D/3D building maps, more levels (layers) can be placed with their own objectives and functions. The detailed pages of GeoItems can be managed category-specific and can display language instances along with different elements such as texts, opening times, images, videos, etc.
