Indoor navigation at transport hubs

Location-based solutions to improve logistics and maintenance processes in Transportation

Request For Solution

Our life is inextricably linked with motion. We are constantly moving forward in exploring new routes and places. It doesn't matter if it's a trip on the subway, flight to another city, or a trip by train to the suburbs - we value safety, speed, and convenience. Modern technologies are intended to satisfy these needs, ease our lives and save valuable time.

Navigine shares this vision and has created location-based services to improve your experience at any transportation hub. We have four navigation solutions to offer:

Passengers Wayfinding solution at the Airports and Train Stations

It’s hard to imagine our lives without location based services that permanently use GPS. But how to find the way to the target destination inside the buildings, where GPS doesn’t work? In such situations, indoor navigation comes in handy. Our technologies allow building great solutions for indoor navigation for airports and railways. We detect a passenger’s position and suggest the best wayfinding inside a building.

  • Features:
  • interactive maps of stations and connections with points of interest (POI);
  • wayfinding function with the construction of routes to any POIs;
  • real-time navigation at floor plans like in Google maps;
  • useful location-based notifications on changing schedules and transport situations.
  • Expected benefits:
  • passengers loyalty growth due to the improvement in customer experience;
  • opportunity for additional revenue from retail enterprises through the new mobile channel;
  • advanced analytics on app users’ traffic to improve safety and reduce bottlenecks.

Motion Analytics

The foot trafic varies significantly during the day with peaks in different times and places: at the airport gates, information points, baggage claim area, railway platforms. Crowds in may cause the formation of bottlenecks, add discomfort during one’s journey, and can be dangerous, especially in the covid era. Optimization of people flow is a challenge. Navigine provides real-time aggregated passenger traffic data to effectively use it in an always-changing transportation system.

  • Features:
  • monitoring of passenger traffic using heat maps and flow maps;
  • bottlenecks identification;
  • traffic segmentation on regular, transit, and temporary visitors (without personalization);
  • automatic signaling in case of dangerous peaks in passenger concentration;
  • airport queue management systems.
  • Expected benefits:
  • real-time monitoring of passenger foot traffic to ensure a quick reaction to changing conditions;
  • analytics for optimization of internal logistics.
  • public safety during challenging epidemological situation.

Staff Navigation

Employees responsible for maintenance and repair, traffic control, and security have to perform their daily tasks. Transport conditions may change very fast and require quickly informed actions. In complex urban conditions, the transportation systems need mobile assistance for effective staff navigation to instantly react to ongoing situations. Navigine provides comprehensible guidance for staff to navigate through multiple transportation areas with different environments.

  • Features:
  • interactive maps of stations/connections/tunnels/depots with key elements and assets on them;
  • wayfinding function with the construction of routes to any element according to work assignments;
  • real-time navigation at floor maps with the list of assignments;
  • location based notifications regarding changing assignments and transport situations.
  • Expected benefits:
  • real-time staff navigation and corrections of daily assignments.
  • increase in safety level due to immediate reaction to changing conditions;
  • optimization of logistics and maintenance processes.

Assets Tracking

Transportation systems are constantly trying to improve maintenance processes to serve passengers with high quality and at low costs. One of the most important factors in maintenance is effective asset management. To help optimize asset management, Navigine has created solutions for real-time equipment and vehicle tracking. In addition to real-time data these solutions provide aggregated analytics on vehicles and equipment movements over time and allow to obtain useful insights on existing inefficiencies and ways to tackle them.

  • Features:
  • real-time tracking of assets position with key operation and maintenance parameters;
  • notifications about unexpected situations, risks at transport hubs;
  • creation and customization of analytical reports by time, tracked objects, or processes;
  • aggregation of data on logistics and maintenance process inefficiencies.
  • Expected benefits:
  • real-time positioning of all valuable and business-critical vehicles and equipment;
  • analytics for optimization of internal logistics in transport infrastructure;
  • public safety increase due to gradual improvement in asset management.

Airport navigation

We have developed mobile passenger navigation at railway stations. Navigine’s information system for monitoring and analysis in real-time passenger traffic at public transport networks within the large urban agglomerations allowed to put together data about all routes in the city, data about carriers working on these routes, and data about the current and forecasted load on these routes.


The most significant use case for the transportation industry was the project for Subway. Our complex solution includes location based services for stations, depots, and tunnels. Navigine has worked on the navigation app for passengers, a pilot system of staff tracking, and “friend or foe” access control in tunnels and depots of Subway.


The experience of the traveler consists of a variety of airport services - from check-in, arrivals, transfers, shopping, security, and immigration through to departure at the gate. To improve product key performance indicators for more than 31 million passengers we developed a mobile platform. It is used to provide positioning on the map, routing, and finding features like check-in desks, gates, restaurants, etc.
