When you’re on the move outdoors, finding your exact location is no problem using your phone’s built-in GPS. However, indoors, the GPS signals are too weak to be of any use. Luckily, there are several ways to solve this problem.
There are a number of technologies that can help users to find their position indoors. WiFi triangulation, BLE beaconing technology, sensor fusion platforms and geomagnetic field fingerprinting are probably the best options and we’ve got experience in using all of these. Each of these options come with their pros and cons, and we need to look at each individual use case to see what technology will work best for you. We are a positioning-agnostic service that can work with more or less any positioning provider, and we take pride in advising our customers the best fit for their needs and budget.
Regardless of which positioning service you choose, MazeMap offers a blue-dot experience with a seamless transition from outdoor to indoor navigation. The blue dot updates as you move along the route so that you can make sure you’re walking in the right direction.
