Even though the technology’s fairly new, it’s already hard to imagine life without GPS. Almost everywhere on the planet, people depend on navigation and mobile apps for location-specific information and services. GPS lets people find their way from place to place, get information about their immediate vicinity, and work efficiently.
Imagine if you could bring the power of GPS indoors. Retailers could enhance the shopping experience with wayfinding and in-store promotions, giving shoppers new reasons to buy. Hospitals could use wayfinding to help patients arrive on time for appointments and reduce stress. Businesses could help warehouse staff work more efficiently with easier product finding and location-based stocking instructions. Employers could give employees lighting and temperature controls for their workspaces, or could suggest nearby empty meeting rooms based on current location, making them more comfortable and productive.
