Indoor Navigation &Tracking
Solution with Bluetooth Beacon

We are living in a fast-pacing world with significant technological advancements, especially in the business world. For any business to compete favorably in this era, it should be more creative, competitive, and efficient. However, even as they become more innovative, saving resources should also be their primary objective.

For this reason, there is the emergence of indoor navigation or indoor tracking solutions combined with various automation options. This technology is growing in popularity each year and is likely to become a significant trend in businesses and government soon.

This growth is also engineered by the fact that people spend 93% of their lives indoors. It can be in warehouses, shopping malls, houses, business premises, offices, and many other places where Global positioning system technology is essential.

Challenges

Ignorance

Many organizations like supermarkets,exhibition centers,hospitals and warehouses don’t recognize the need to use global positioning systems indoors. They feel that managing and tracking employees, goods, and assets are easy.

However, these daily routines in the above organizations are tedious and time-consuming. For this reason, there is a need to utilize modern technologies. This can help save companies’ resources, time, and effort.

Inaccuracy of GPS Signals
When Used Indoors

In recent years, GPS satellite technology has successfully revolutionized outdoor positioning. Almost everyone owns a smart device, for instance, a tablet and Smartphone, with such positioning potential. However, GPS signals are not reliable when used in narrow streets and indoors. They disperse and diminish in the surrounding walls and roofs, making it unpractical indoors.

Inddor NAVIGATION Solution

Successful indoor tracking is now possible thanks to technological advancements. Organizations can achieve this through the adoption of the following:

  • Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE 4.0)
  • Radio Frequency Identification
  • Magnetic Field Detection
  • WIFI
  • Ultra-wideband
  • Near Field Communication
  • BLE beacons
  • iOS & Android
  • iBeacon & Eddystone

All these technologies vary in diverse ways: installation cost is different, some are more compatible and accurate than others, and their implementation efforts differ. However, BLE beacons’ advantages surpass the benefits of all the above tracking technologies.

Pros of BLE Beacons

For these reasons, BLE beacons become the best solution for accurate indoor tracking, especially where GNSS struggles. Generally, beacons have grown in popularity as indoor GPS, especially when there is a need for automatic positioning. This is due to their high accuracy and flexibility, which makes them reliable than other technologies.

How BLE Beacons Work During Navigation

When beacons are tagged on assets, people, or goods in a business premises, they keep transmitting unique signals from time to time. The GPS trackers then identify and read the signals. The FM devices then combine this data with GNSS location details and send them to the server for analysis. The dedicated software will then determine the people, assets, and goods’ location.

Beacon Indoor Navigation Services
