A business that embraces technology like indoor navigation can thrive easily in this competitive world. The technology has become very relevant in various fields of business because it can work in a place where a GPS system doesn’t. For instance, it can help you know the position of a smartphone that is located in an indoor environment. Here are some of the benefits of investing in the indoor navigation technology applications.
Advantages of the Navigation Technology
Versatility: It’s versatility is unmatchable to other navigation technologies. For instance, in other navigation technologies, if the device that was emitting a signal is switched off, then the navigation will show that it’s was taking the signal from an emitting system that has gone off. But for indoor navigation, it can adjust to the mode and start behaving as if it wasn’t taking instructions from an emitting device.
Accuracy: Indoor navigation is more accurate than a GPS system. A regular GPS can provide vague results when being used indoors. The indoor navigation system, on the other hand, will utilize artificial intelligence, the Internet, and multisensory technology in giving you the accurate results.
No need for additional hardware: The indoor navigation uses Bluetooth Low Energy Technology (BLE), and Wi-Fi connectivity. It can utilize both technologies at the same time for optimal results. Other systems like GPS require some additional hardware to be functional.
Multiple recognition: If your business has multi-level buildings, then you should consider investing in the indoor technology. It’s very reliable because it can recognize that there are other levels in the building that it is located.
Other applications of the technology
Since the technology has many advantages, it has been embraced as a solution for executing various applications such as:
• Tracking workers in industries and factories. Most factories have several workers moving around all the time carrying out various production works, and they can’t be easily monitored manually. In fact, it reduces time wastage because supervisors or managers don’t have to move around. Instead, they channel that time into doing other important tasks.
• Multimillion organizations that deal with sensitive or expensive products like the FBI can use the technology in monitoring visitors once they enter the building. The multi-level functionality makes it a very valuable technology for security companies.
• The technology is also applicable in shopping malls. The navigation technology has an ability to use the existing standards in determining the location of a mobile device like a smartphone.
