infsoft header Wayfinding


infsoft Wayfinding

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.

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.




Technical Implementation

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.
