September 2016 turned out to be hot: tropical weather and extremely urgent job. The Navigine team was offered to make a navigation solution for the Skolkovo Technopark building, which was at the final stage of construction. The challenge was serious (as usual): we had to implement the inside interactive navigation for the 96,000 square meters area in two weeks and, moreover, to develop a special app for the significant business forum, Open Innovations, which was about to start in a month.
We just got back from Tel Aviv and it was so great, even in spite of the fact that we had to deal with the biggest sandstorm in the Middle East for the last 75 years.
The problem that indoor navigation solves is quite obvious and important. Nevertheless, at the moment there is only limited number of cases with implementation of indoor navigation into mass or corporate sector.
There are more than 300 malls in Moscow and Moscow region with total area about 16 million m2. In ABI Research’s latest report, “Indoor LBS: Applications, Advertising, and Revenues”, senior analyst Patrick Connolly comments that in 2014 a number of major retailers are finalizing their pilot projects in indoor navigation and soon we will see a lot of system installations. This trend is also supported by late developments in iBeacons/BLE technologies and readiness of consumers to increase the share of online purchases through a smartphone.
Today is the first day of Navitech 2014. We present our application developed by companies Getsy and Navigine. You can download it to your smartphone from AppStore or Google Play.
Foreign airports and train stations can often be confusing places to find your way around. Google has launched an interactive map featuring Street Views of over 65 mass-transit hubs. The map features some locations you may have already explored, like Emirates' A380 or London's Gatwick Airport, alongside some new sites across Europe, South America, and Asia. Google Indoor Street View makes use of thousands of stitched images, which together create a panoramic map of the inside of the terminal. Passengers can use these images to plan their journey through the facility.
On March, 6, 2014 we have performed another demo day in Lomonosov Moscow State University for our partners and clients. Previous demo day took place on February 14, 2014 where we rolled out our navigation system in the Main building of Moscow State University. The system operated on iOs and Android using external signals from Wi-Fi points and Bluetooth beacons.
