Unlocking the Secrets of Indoor Navigation using QR Codes
Unlocking the Secrets of Indoor Navigation using QR Codes
Navigation in business centers, shopping malls, universities, and clinics sometimes becomes tricky, as it’s not unusual to get confused with all the hallways and rooms when the conventional GPS navigation isn’t working great. GPS allows you to determine the location on a particular street with an accuracy of up to 15-30 ft. However, when it comes to indoor navigation, the system’s efficiency drops dramatically, with the GPS signal not being able to pass through the walls. In this article, we will go over one of the easiest options for addressing this issue, namely indoor navigation using QR codes.
Why Implement Indoor Navigation & Tracking for Grocery Stores?
Why Implement Indoor Navigation & Tracking for Grocery Stores?
The process of buying goods in stores is still imperfect. Many shoppers, especially when visiting a store that is new for them, may feel more stressed and even anxious while looking for particular sections, surfing through large crowds of people, etc. Indoor positioning systems can help you resolve the issues with navigation within grocery stores. Introducing tracking and digital grocery store maps allows you to improve the purchasing process, to increase customer loyalty and the average spend.
Tracking assets in logistics and warehousing and its influence on business results
Tracking assets in logistics and warehousing and its influence on business results
Since any warehouse or large logistics center has to track assets, companies can make use of smart solutions based on modern indoor tracking and navigation technologies. Effective asset tracking allows businesses to minimize cargo losses while loading, increase staff efficiency, and lower operational costs.
All about Particle Filter for Indoor Navigation and Positioning
All about Particle Filter for Indoor Navigation and Positioning
Indoor navigation allows us to provide navigation solutions and organize navigation inside the building. To implement the navigation, it’s necessary to create the correct positioning model. The algorithm estimates the position of the object and builds a statistical distribution of potential positions of the object. One of the approaches used to create a probabilistic positioning model is a particle filter. This will be the subject of today’s article.
How to track contacts during the Covid-19 pandemic using Bluetooth®?
How to track contacts during the Covid-19 pandemic using Bluetooth®?
In the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, working place safety is an important issue for enterprise managers. Nowadays many companies are searching for the most effective solutions that will let employees return to normal work without any risk of being infected. Bluetooth® contact tracing is one of such solutions. The technology allows tracking the movements of the staff during the day and, if necessary, easily traces the interaction of the infected person with other employees and finds the places where they have been since the time of the first symptoms.
Tracking wheelchairs in hospitals
Tracking wheelchairs in hospitals
Most hospitals are equipped with wheelchairs that simplify the patient care and the work of hospital staff. However, medical institutions have to monitor their location as a means to ensure constant availability and prevent theft. According to statistics, on average, about 25% of wheelchairs are lost or stolen annually in hospitals, and the staff wastes up to 20 minutes of their working time every day searching for a wheelchair.
K-Nearest Neighbours Positioning Algorithm
K-Nearest Neighbours Positioning Algorithm
Aside from the Zone localization algorithm, there is another one often used for defining object location. The KNN algorithm requires special radiomap data measurement that can be performed using a procedure called Radiomap Measurement. This procedure includes measuring the target location's radiomap on foot via an Android device with the Navigine Application installed.
Wi-Fi location tracking for assets and other object indoors
Wi-Fi location tracking for assets and other object indoors
Exact asset tracking inside buildings causes some difficulty in telematics. GPS/ GLONASS signals have difficulties in penetrating buildings and can’t detect correctly the location of objects, so WiFi location tracking is an optimal solution. It can be used in any premises – from offices to large industrial complexes. The Wi Fi tracking technology makes it possible not only to detect quickly the location of assets but also to track their trajectories, get detailed analytics of movements, and effectively optimize business processes.
Why does your business need the mobile app with indoor navigation?
Why does your business need the mobile app with indoor navigation?
