Using the geomagnetic field of buildings to navigate indoors

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

You are more than welcome to reach out to me on social media, I would love to hear from you!
