It was in fact only thanks to our precise indoor localization algorithms that the system could be totally automatized without need to install costly infrastructure: our localization platform was integrated in the Buru-Navi system allowing for precise tactile guidance indoor.
The resulting solution is really astonishing as it is able to serve as screen-less and audio-less navigator in any indoor condition. The system architecture unveiled consists of a “simple” smartphone cover that integrates the advanced Buru-Navi hardware and our indoor localization and navigation algorithms. Other configurations are possible to serve all kind of needs in enclosed environments.
For blind people, for emergency (smoke, etc), industry 4.0, and many other applications.
We are of course proud not only to be part of such an high-held project, but also because this demonstrates once more that our hybrid-geomagnetic indoor localization technology is superior to any other, and that there is practically nothing we can’t achieve with it.
