Buildings that operate like small cities with different uses: business, residential, leisure… In them, people constantly come and go for different purposes, while the cleaning, security, maintenance, or information staff work to keep everything running non-stop.
When one floor sleeps, another one wakes up. Is it possible to manage these spaces efficiently and cost-effectively? We say yes. But to achieve this it is essential to know what is happening at each time and in each place. For this purpose, indoor geolocation is the best tool.
A lot has been written about the city of the future, what it will be like and how it will be designed to adapt to new needs. But this is not a recent concern. Since the 19th century, urban theorists have been proposing different designs and approaches, some with more success than others, to achieve “the ideal city”.
This is the scenario in which we find ourselves right now, where the concept of cities and buildings must combine different uses and where everything is in constant movement. But to make it operational it is necessary to make use of automation and digitalization technologies, to be environmentally sustainable and to create humanized spaces.
Indoor positioning to manage large buildings
According to the Europe 2020 Real Estate Market Trends study, drawn up by PWC and the Urban Land Institute, more and more real estate sectors follow major sociodemographic trends where mixed-use, smart mobility and technology are essential features. Therefore, beyond the technical requirements, construction and land-use aspects, these huge indoor spaces with multiple uses entail big management challenges.
In Situm, we have spent many years helping companies manage large spaces in different sectors, but with a common denominator: they saw the importance of improving the management of their facilities both internally and the need to make the space more accessible to its users. The challenges we have outlined above are common to all of them. Therefore, we have developed different technological tools for them to control 100% of their space and their critical staff. Indoor geolocation has become an essential tool for the management of these intelligent buildings.

What will you learn?
Large buildings are increasingly resembling small cities that need to be managed and organized. Indoor geolocation offers multiple possibilities for better development of indoor activities.
