Indoor Navigation is implemented for enabling easy access, and navigation within the facility, with the help of a mobile device called GPS for indoor environments.
Beacons are used in this proximity-based positioning system, which gives instant feedback signals to the mobile device when they enter the range of the beacon, to calculate accurate positioning to navigate the users inside the facility.
Indoor Navigation systems have a wide range of usage in locations like shopping malls , hospitals, college campuses, airports and other indoor venues where users are in need of navigation or other location based services.
Finding locations inside a closed facility is not easy for new visitors. This can be resolved through technological advancements, like indoor navigation systems through various modes of positioning and navigation, which greatly improve the overall customer experience.
The idea for implementing Indoor Navigation system is to provide turn-by-turn navigation instructions for the users who are trying to find their way to their destination, and also get a complete map of the location. It acts as a bridge between the digital and physical environment for the end users to locate the desired place. Some examples are; a visitor locating a patient in a hospital room or ward, a tourist finding their gateway for departure at an airport especially -- in an already stressful or time-sensitive situation.
