An indoor positioning systemSearching for people or mobile assets in large building compounds can be quite an elaborate and tiring task, especially when it is not part of your core responsibilities. With the right combination of people, technology and services, we help you create smart buildings.
A perfect place for more safety and productivity
Location-based services such as navigation using a smartphone are rather common today. They reliably direct people from point A to point B when the way is unfamiliar - regardless of their location. These services are based on the Global Positioning System (GPS). However, GPS doesn't work in most indoor environments because it requires good signal quality, thus ideally an unobstructed line of sight to the satellites. The alternative is an Indoor Positioning System that is able – almost like an indoor GPS – to locate people or objects inside a building. Various technologies are available that Siemens adapts specifically to the customer needs and use case requirements.
