Every building has its own geomagnetic fingerprint and by mapping that fingerprint against a floorplan of the building IndoorAtlas is able to provide accurate location and navigation inside. The genius of this system is that it takes advantage of an existing geomagnetic infrastructure.
In this interview you will learn
How the geomagnetic fields of buildings can play a key role in indoor location
How differences between iOS and android dramatically affect indoor navigation
What are challenges of indoor navigation compared to outdoor navigation and how they are being solved.
What the future of indoor navigation looks like and how indoor navigation might be monetised going forward
