Situm WYF is a Plug-and-play UX component that will allow you to bring wayfinding capabilities to your apps in no-time. It includes, out of the box:
- Cartography visualization: floorplans, points of interest (POIs), and geofences.
- POI search directory, so you can easily build a search bar for any important places of your building.
- Indoor & outdoor geolocation, plus wayfinding with different types of route settings (shortest route, accesible routes only, etc.).
- Turn-by-turn wayfinding directions. 3 flavors available: visual indications, text directions and voice directions (for people with visual impairments).
- Geotriggered notifications: send a greeting to your visitors or a geopromotion to your customers.
Situm WYF is available as a module for Android, iOS, Capacitor and Cordova* (React Native not available at the moment). Since it is based on Situm SDK, its requirements with regard to devices, OS/Framework versions and architectures are the same as those of Situm SDK.
* We don’t recommend using Cordova at the moment. Use Capacitor instead.
How do I get started? #
In order to start building apps with Situm WYF, you will need:
- Previous development experience in the platform where your app will run (Android, iOS, Cordova, React Native), plus a development environment up & running (including a compatible smartphone).
- To create an account in Situm Dashboard.
- To create an API KEY (that you will use in your application).
- A Situm building up & running for testing purpuses. We recommend you to create a building where you can perform your tests (e.g. your office), calibrate it and test the positioning and wayfinding using our Situm Mapping Tool.
- Optionally, you may need BLE beacons in some cases.
We recommend you to take a look at our code examples.
Try WYF module with AVD #
If you want to test your app in an AVD you need to use one that has the Google APIs enabled. In the AVD manager you can see which ones have it enabled in the target section.
