Overview of the setup steps

Here is an overview of all the steps that must be performed to setup Wearabouts indoor and/or outdoor:

Indoor

  1. Plan the installation by verifying to have enough radio signals (Wi-Fi access points and/or iBeacons) and/or by verifying the variability of the ambient that will contain the Android devices that you want to track.
  2. Choose a reference system that will be used to perform the fingerprinting process and to visualize the locations of the Android devices running the Wearabouts App.
  3. Perform the fingerprinting of the site using the Accuware Indoors App installed on an Android device. During the fingerprinting process the Accuware Indoors App will automatically scan and upload (to a database on the Accuware server) the fingerprints of the radio signals and/or camera images collected at multiple known locations of your site.
  4. Track Android wearables, smartphones, tablets and combo tags by installing the Wearabouts App on all the devices that you want to track.

When active, the Wearabouts App collects the list of radio signals (Wi-Fi access points and iBeacons) and/or camera images at the device’s current location and sends these data to the Wearabouts sever. After a pattern-matching against the database of fingerprints (created during the fingerprinting phase), the Accuware server will estimate the device’s location. The location of the device is made available by the Accuware server as pairs of time-stamped coordinates (latitude and longitude in WGS84 format) and it can be:

  • visualized inside the Accuware dashboard.
  • integrated inside any web or mobile application capable of using RESTful API.

Outdoor

  1. Track Android wearables, smartphones, tablets and combo tags by installing the Wearabouts App on all the devices that you want to track.

When active, the Wearabouts App collects the list of radio signals (Wi-Fi access points and cellular towers) and/or images at the device’s current location and sends these data to the Wearabouts sever. After a pattern-matching against against the Navizon database of Wi-Fi and cellular towers signals and/or the database of images (collected during the fingerprinting phase), the Accuware server estimates the device’s location. The location of the device is made available by the Accuware server as pairs of time-stamped coordinates (latitude and longitude in WGS84 format) and it can be:

  • visualized inside the Accuware dashboard.
  • integrated inside any web or mobile application capable of using RESTful API.
