In large buildings or on wide campus areas, there are many destinations that visitors and employees want to reach. A smartphone app helps users to get to the desired location quickly and easily. infsoft Wayfinding can be used in buildings such as hospitals, airports and office complexes across indoor and outdoor areas.
In order to implement the solution, battery-powered hardware components are installed at regular intervals throughout the building. The position is determined directly in an app on the user's smartphone.
The use of our setup tools is included in the solution. With infsoft Maps Editor, infsoft CMS, infsoft Routes and infsoft Calibration, the application can be flexibly configured according to the customer's needs. Using our SDK (Software Development Kit) it is also possible to integrate the technology into existing applications.
Digital 2D/3D Building Map
The app provides 2D and 3D maps of the individual floors of all buildings on the site. The user can see their own location as well as relevant destinations on the premises.
The user can be navigated to any destination on the site. Using turn-by-turn navigation, the user follows the directional instructions displayed in the wayfinding app.
Information about Points of Interest
In addition to the position of the destinations, further information about them can be found. This may include a brief description, opening hours and contact details.
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons (or infsoft Locator Beacons) are installed at regular intervals throughout in the building. The beacons emit signals which are received by the users' smartphones. Based on the received signals, the position of the device is determined directly in the smartphone app.
Inside the app, the user can select a navigation destination and follow the directional instructions to their destination.
