Indoor navigation FAQ

What is indoor navigation?  

The functionality that allows a user to navigate inside buildings from one point to another thanks to its real-time positioning on a map on the smartphone. 

How do you build an indoor navigation system? 

You will need to deploy some beacons in the building where you want to provide wayfinding, configure the building map on the dashboard and integrate the guidance system into your app using our Situm WYF module or SDK, or use our ready-to-publish app base. 

What are the components of the platfom? 

The components of our Situm IPS platform are our RTLS – Real Time Location Service; the Situm Mapping Tool app for building calibration; the multifunction dashboard to manage cartography, paths and get geo-analytics; different solutions for integration of guidance functionality in apps, and Rest APIs for integration with other systems. 

Why indoor navigation using Bluetooth beacons? 

The beacons are small, easy-to-install devices without any connectivity that emit a BLE signal that Situm’s algorithm uses, along with other signals, to locate the user’s smartphone inside the building. Their use is necessary due to the restrictions of the iOS operating system in that it does not automatically detect Wi-Fi, another of the main signals incorporated into Situm’s algorithm. 

How to create an indoor navigation map? 

Upload an image of your building’s floor plan to Situm Dashboard, create the points of interest where you want to guide visitors, and point out on a map with an intuitive tool the paths where users will circulate. 

What is an indoor navigation app? 

It’s an application enriched with indoor guidance functionality so that a user can easily find his way inside a building thanks to its real-time positioning on a map. 

How do I create an indoor navigation app? 

With our integration solutions you can create it from scratch or integrate this functionality into an existing app. Situm offers different solutions depending on the developer’s experience with this type of applications. 

How to create an indoor navigation map for free? 

You can create it for free for an app with all the resources we provide, but you will need to purchase a license for commercial use. Also remember that Situm Dashboard trial is temporarily limited. 

Where is indoor navigation used? 

It is usually used in large and complex buildings such as hospitals, shopping malls, airports or large sporting venues and events where users are easily lost and their experience is negatively affected. 

What are the use cases of indoor navigation? 

In addition to indoor guidance, it opens the door to geomarketing applications. It allows sending promotions to the user’s smartphone in the right place at the right time, and merging the real and digital environments by leveraging the user’s profile in the virtual environment to offer them a personal experience in the physical one. It also allows building managers to obtain useful geo-analytics for a better understanding of how visitors use the space.

Indoor wayfinding with beacons. How many will I need?

The answer to this question is based on the robustness of Situm’s core technology, which combines a greater amount of signals than other solutions, enabling smartphones to be located indoors with high precision and minimal infrastructure.
